Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Within the DFG funded „Ensemble projections of hydro-biogeochemical fluxes under climate change“/,/the Chair for Climatology, Climate Dynamics and Climate Change (Prof. J. Luterbacher), Department of Geography, Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany, offers a 3-year fulltime Postdoc in statistical climatology/modelling, starting 1st November 2014 Payment will be according to „Entgeltgruppe 13 Tarifvertrag Hessen (TV-H)“. Duties: Set up of an ensemble of climate models and statistical downscaling to investigate the predictive uncertainties of different chains of models as well as their combined uncertainty. CORDEX simulations (Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment; <http://wcrp-cordex.ipsl.jussieu.fr/>EURO-CORDEX) as well as regional process models in combination with instrumental data will be analysed and statistical downscaling will be applied to two selected catchments in Germany and the UK. Extreme Value Theory will be performed using meteorological data and downscaled model output for the 20th century and first part of the 21st century. In collaboration with Prof. Lutz Breuer (Chair of Landscape, Water and Biogeochemical Cycles, Institute for Landscape Ecology and Resources Management, Department of Agriculture, Ecotrophology and Environmental Management) the combination of climate model ensembles and hydro-biogeochemical model ensembles will be studied with probabilistic and deterministic methods. Requirements: Candidates should have a PhD in natural sciences and strong programming and statistical background, handling large data sets and GIS. Experience in project management and ability to work efficiently in an international team in multidisciplinary projects are essential. Applicants must provide evidence of high-quality research and a very good publication record in peer-reviewed journals. A motivated, well organized, creative and enthusiastic team-player who will contribute to the group’s scientific success is much welcomed. The Justus Liebig University aims to employ more women in academic research. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply. The Justus Liebig University aims to position itself as a family-friendly university. Applicants with children are welcome to apply. Please send your application as a single PDF file exclusively via Email to Prof. Juerg Luterbacher (firstname.lastname@example.org) until the end of August 2014. The PDF should include a CV, 1-page letter of motivation, list of peer-reviewed publications and copies of study certificates).
