[Met-jobs] University of Bergen: Postdoctoral Position in Climate modeling

From Mao-Lin Shen <>
Date Thu, 7 Jan 2016 12:22:21 +0100

Postdoctoral Fellow position at Geophysical Institute

There is a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow position at Geophysical Institute within Climate Modelling.

The position is for a period of 2 years.


About the project/work tasks

The position is connected to the ERC STERCP grant that focuses on the development of super climate models.


The simulation and prediction of climate remains a challenge. The position will focus on applying two alternative methods – flux-correction and super climate modelling – to enhance climate prediction and reduce uncertainties in climate change projections. A super climate model is an optimal combination of different models that influence one another as they run. Our recent work has shown the potential of this approach to reduce model errors. The aim of this position will be to use these two different approaches to understand how model errors impact the simulation and prediction of climate.
