[Met-jobs] Available 3-yr postdoc/researcher position in numerical/computational modeling

Dear Colleagues,

I apologize for any cross-postings. We have an opening for a 3-yr postdoc/researcher position in numerical/computational modeling at Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, and I would be grateful if you can spread this to any interested groups.

many thanks,

Researcher position in numerical ocean modelling

A 3-year researcher position in computational ocean modelling is available at Uni Research Climate. The appointment will start as soon as possible with negotiable starting date. Uni Research Climate is a department of Uni Research AS and partner of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR) in Bergen, Norway. The candidate will work under the Norwegian Research Council funded project ORGANIC (Overturning circulation and its implications for global carbon cycle in coupled models).

The researcher will join the biogeochemical modelling group in BCCR, which is part of a dynamic team of Earth system modellers. He/She will participate in the planned development activities for the next generation Norwegian Earth system model (NorESM). His/Her modelling activities will focus on advancing the ocean biogeochemical general circulation model MICOM-HAMOCC (Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model ? HAMburg Oceanic Carbon Cycle) as part of NorESM.

One of the main goals of the project ORGANIC is to elucidate the role of ocean biogeochemistry in regulating past and potentially future climate variability at various spatial and temporal scales. The tasks include developing a new computationally efficient method (e.g., combination of transport matrix and matrix-free Newton-Krylov method) to accelerate the MICOM-HAMOCC model spin-up to arrive at different climate equilibria under various periods. Their impact of climate and ocean physics on interior ocean biogeochemical tracer cycling will be quantified, also in view of climate projections driven by future scenarios. In addition, the successful candidate will be involved in evaluation and uncertainty analysis of future climate simulations - e.g., those of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 6 (CMIP6) - and writing of peer-reviewed scientific publications.
