JOB DESCRIPTION Ref: Postdoc_Clima 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).
