PhD position at TU Delft, The Netherlands: “Coupled modeling of Greenland ice sheet and global climate evolution” Description: The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is currently losing mass in response to atmospheric and ocean warming. The candidate will investigate the interactions between the GrIS and the climate system with the Community Earth System Model, the first global climate model that simulates realistically ice sheet surface processes (e.g. surface melt, albedo). The project goal is to examine the role of natural climate variability vs. anthropogenic forcing, melt-albedo feedback, changes in cloud cover and sea ice on the current and future evolution of the Greenland ice sheet and its climate. Requirements: Candidates must have a background in Meteorology, Physics and/or Fluid Dynamics. High programming and analytical skills, experience in advanced statistical analysis, and good English oral and writing skills are required. Experience in meteorology, climate dynamics and/or glaciology is desirable. We offer: full-time position for four years at the Department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing, Delft University of Technology www.grs.citg.delft.nl <http://www.grs.citg.delft.nl/>. The project will be co-supervised by Dr. Jan Lenaerts from the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research at Utrecht University. The candidate will collaborate with colleagues in the US and present results in CESM meetings and international conferences. Application: Please send cover letter, CV and contact details of at least two referees to supervisor Miren Vizcaino, M.Vizcaino@tudelft.nl <mailto:M.Vizcaino@tudelft.nl>, with subject “PhD Application: Coupled GrIS/climate modeling” before 10th Nov 2014.
