The research group “Climate and Water Cycle” led by Prof. Christoph Schär (http://www.iac.ethz.ch/groups/schaer) at ETH Zürich is offering
Two PhD positions in Regional Climate Modeling
The aim of our research is to better understand the role of the water cycle in a changing climate, and to improve the predictive power of climate models. The two PhD positions will be devoted to regional climate modeling at hydrostatic to convection-resolving resolutions (25 - 2 km grid spacing). The targeted work includes extended climate simulations, statistical analysis, interpretation of results using physical and meteorological principles, and publication of results in peer-reviewed journals. The specific objectives of the two PhDs are related to the roles of atmospheric convection and large-scale circulation in a changing climate, mainly focusing on the European summer season. The positions are embedded in an experienced research team, provide access to high-performance computing systems, and are linked to ongoing international and national initiatives (e.g. EURO-CORDEX http://wcrp-cordex.ipsl.jussieu.fr, crCLIM http://www.c2sm.ethz.ch/research/crCLIM).
We are looking for two independent, result-oriented persons with the ability to work well in a team. Requirements include: an education in atmospheric or climate sciences or a related discipline (e.g. environmental sciences, physics, computational sciences), thorough experience in programming, a solid background in mathematics and ideally in data analysis, proficient writing skills in English, and good communication skills.
We offer an attractive research environment at a leading climate research institute, excellent infrastructure, interesting activities in a young and ambitious research team, and a friendly working atmosphere. The ideal starting date for these positions is late summer or early autumn 2016. The positions are for a period of three years. For further information, please contact Dr. Nikolina Ban email@example.com and/or Dr. Silje Soerland firstname.lastname@example.org.
