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 <>.

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,
<>, with subject “PhD Application: Coupled
GrIS/climate modeling” before 10th Nov 2014.
