Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The group for land-climate dynamics at the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Sciences, ETH Zürich, has an opening within the ERC Consolidator Grant DROUGHT-HEAT project (www.drought-heat.ethz.ch <http://www.drought-heat.ethz.ch/>) for a PhD or Postdoctoral Position in atmospheric/climate science (land-climate dynamics, climate change attribution) The project aims at improving the understanding of land-climate processes that determine the occurrence of extreme events, with a focus on droughts and heatwaves. For the third phase of the project we are seeking a PhD (3 years) or Postdoctoral (2 years) candidate. The position will focus on the assessment of the role of land-climate interactions for the attribution of recent drought and heatwaves, as well as trends in these events. The investigations will be based on 1) simulations with a state-of-the-art Earth System Model (CESM, www2.cesm.ucar.edu <http://www2.cesm.ucar.edu/>) and 2) the analysis of newest observational datasets. Collaborations with other modeling groups are planned, in particular building upon the EU-FP7 EUCLEIA project (http://eucleia.eu <http://eucleia.eu/>). A focus of the project is to disentangle the role of atmospheric circulation patterns vs regional land conditions and feedbacks for the occurrence of droughts and heatwaves under enhanced greenhouse gas concentrations. The desired qualifications are: Master or PhD degree in climate and/or environmental sciences, physics, statistics, computational sciences or a closely related discipline; experience with a higher programming language (e.g. R, Matlab); fluency in English; good communication skills; interest in land-climate dynamics and climate extremes research. Previous experience in climate modeling or climate statistics is of advantage. For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Sonia I. Seneviratne at firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> (no application documents) and/or visit our website www.iac.ethz.ch/groups/seneviratne <http://www.iac.ethz.ch/groups/seneviratne>. We are looking forward to receive your online application: <https://apply.refline.ch/845721/4776/pub/1/index.html> Please send it to: ETH Zurich, Human Resources, Mr. Olivier Meyrat, CH-8092 Zurich. Reviewing of the applications will start on July 20, 2016, and will continue until the position is filled. The position start is planned for September/October 2016, although a later date is possible under particular circumstances. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer. We specifically encourage women to apply. ------------------------------------------------------------- ETH Zurich Prof. Sonia I.
