Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

There are two postdoctoral positions open in the Marine Research Unit of
Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki:

#1 Sea ice dynamics research
#2 Development of high-resolution operational sea ice model for the Kara Sea

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work within
the Marine Research Unit of Finnish Meteorological Institute. The first
position will focus on linkages between small and large scale sea ice
dynamics, based on field measurement that will be collecting during the
Norwegian Polar Research Institute N-ICE2015 field campaign and
theoretical considerations. The ultimate goal is to improve physical
description of sea ice dynamics in climate models. The other position is
closely linked to the first, but focuses on sea ice physical processes
and characteristics relevant to a navigation and development of
operational sea ice model for the Kara Sea.

Applicants should have, or be close to obtaining, a doctorate in
physical oceanography, meteorology, physics, applied mathematics,
engineering, or earth sciences, with a strong skills of computational
modelling. The appointments are for 2 years, commencing as soon as
possible after an offer has been made. Continuation for two other years
is possible. Marine Research Unit at the FMI is responsible for physical
oceanograhy and sea ice research in Finland. The Marine Research Unit
consists of three groups focusing on operational oceanography, polar
oceans and sea ice and air-sea interaction. Our common key science foci
are to:

- Examine variability and change of the ice covered seas and role of sea
ice in the climate system
- Investigate ocean-atmosphere interactions and role of ocean on global
greenhouse balance
- Study impact of marine physical changes on ecosystem and society
- Develop tools for safe and efficient shipping, coastal management and
marine forecasting.

Deadline for applications is Friday 19 September 2014. Please, send your
