Job Title: Post-Doctoral Position: Seasonal to Decadal Climate Prediction for 
Climate Services.

Context and Mission:
Within the Earth Sciences Department of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center 
(ES-BSC), led by Prof Francisco
Doblas-Reyes, the services group includes climate prediction research to 
advance actionable climate information
for key sectors of society. Time scales of interest range from a few weeks to a 
few decades into the future (subseasonal
to decadal climate prediction) and from local and regional to global scales.

This objective relies on expanding our understanding of the climate processes 
responsible for the predictable part
of the climate variability, through a deep analysis of the strengths and 
weaknesses of state-of-the-art climate
forecast systems in comparison with the most up-to-date observational datasets, 
and through exploration of the
most advanced post-processing techniques.

Positioned at the cutting-edge of climate predictions research, we have access 
to international climate forecast
systems and large multi-model databases from international projects (CMIP, 
SPECS, NMME ...). Achieving our
objectives rely on the combination of a large variety of expertise within our 
group ranging from climate processes
to user interactions.

Particular attention is paid to the career path of the group members, who are 
given gradually increasing
responsibilities within the group and in the context of both national and 
international projects. Opportunities exist
to participate in the tutoring and monitoring of early-career scientists.

This position requires participation in several projects funded by the European 
commission such as NEWA
(www.euwindatlas.eu), EUPORIAS (www.euporias.eu), SPECS (www.specs-fp7.eu) and 
PRIMAVERA (to start in
November 2015), positioned within the context of WMO’s Global Framework for 
Climate Services (GFCS).

Full details can be found in the attachment.
