Post-doctoral Fellowships x3: Climate Change Information for Regions

The Climate System Analysis Group (CSAG) <http://www.csag.uct.ac.za> is
expanding their post-doctoral team with three new appointments to work
collaboratively with a consortium of international partners on two new
interdisciplinary projects (see <http://www.fractal.org.za> and
<http://www.sasscal.org>). The positions are based in Cape Town, South
Africa.

The three post-doctoral fellowships are loosely focused around:
- Developing regional climate change information
- Changes in regional climate atmospheric processes
- Uptake of climate change information in decision making

Key foci of the projects include:
- Communication and translation of climate information informed by key
vulnerabilities of societal systems, especially at the scales of cities
and their co-dependent regions.
- Application, uptake and integration of climate information in decision
frameworks in cities.
- Methodologies to distill scale relevant and robust information from
multi-model multi-method climate projection data sets.
- Uncertainty, probability, likelihood and confidence in scale
appropriate climate information.
- Assessment of the co-behaviour of multi-scale climate process response
to anthropogenic forcing and natural variability.

Applicants should have received their PhDs within the last 5 years.
The value of the fellowship for recent graduates will be R250 000 / year
(tax free).
