Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is looking for a Research Scientist within Research Domain 2 (Climate Impacts and Vulnerabilities). The successful candidate will work in direct collaboration with Dr Douglas Maraun (GEOMAR Kiel, Wegener Center Graz). The main place of work will be at PIK, but visits to Wegener Center will be integral part of the project. Close collaboration with impact modellers from the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISI-MIP) is expected. The PIK was founded in 1992 and is an internationally renowned research institution in the areas of climate change, climate policy and climate economics. We offer one full-time position from 1 July to 31 December 2015, with the possibility of extension up until December 2016 depending on project approval. Salary and benefits are according to public service regulations in Germany (E13 TV-L). The position is linked to the ISI-MIP project (www.isi-mip.org <http://www.isi-mip.org/>), which aims to provide a framework to collate a consistent set of climate impact data across sectors (e.g. water, natural vegetation, agriculture) and different scales. We seek a highly motivated student or young post-doctoral researcher to develop statistical post-processing methods for bias correcting global climate model output. The post-processed simulations will serve as standardized input for ISI-MIP and the tools will also be offered to process the new CMIP6 climate model simulations for impact modelers. The main task of the position is to develop a plausible and physically defensible bias correction method. This means, the method should encompass both the actual statistical development as well as understanding the applicability and limitations of the approach and the interpretation of the results in the context of climate impact modelling. Special attention should be paid to the treatment of extreme weather and climate events. The successful candidate will: Have an MSc-degree in meteorology, climatology, physics, applied statistics or a related quantitative science; Have a strong interest in developing statistical methods, but also in understanding the feasibility of these methods in the context of climate change and global climate model errors; Have proven expertise in modern applied statistics (highly desirable); Enjoy working in a team in an international research environment and to be keen to develop their climatological and statistical knowledge as well as practical skills. The position remains open until filled, but applications are encouraged by 3 June, 2015. Please send your application including a letter of motivation, CV, two references and, if available, two short samples of scientific text in English (e.g., introduction/conclusion from a thesis) as a single pdf to Katja Frieler (email@example.com) and Douglas Maraun (firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>) with the keywords '[ISI-MIP Bias Correction Position]' in the subject line. PIK seeks to increase the number of female scientists and encourages them to apply. Disabled persons with equal qualifications will be favorably regarded. -- ISI-MIP Inter-sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project Coordination team Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research P.O.
