Dear all,


At the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, the Spanish National Center of Supercomputing we are looking for Co-leader of the climate prediction group that will join our Earth Sciences Department. If interested, have a look to the details of our vacancy below:


About BSC

BSC-CNS (Barcelona Supercomputing Center – Centro Nacional de Supercomputación) is the National Supercomputing Facility in Spain and manages MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe. The mission of BSC-CNS is to investigate, develop and manage information technology in order to facilitate scientific progress. With this aim, special dedication has been taken to areas such as Computer Sciences, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences and Computational Applications in Science and Engineering.


Context and Mission of the role

Within the Earth Sciences Department of Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC -ES), led by Prof Francisco Doblas-Reyes, the climate prediction group, led by Virginie Guemas, aims at developing climate prediction capability for time scales ranging from a few weeks to a few decades into the future and from regional to global scales. Achieving our objectives rely on the combination of a large variety of expertise on climate processes within our group from the
stratosphere down to the deep ocean and from tropical to polar latitudes, together with expertise on climate modeling and data assimilation.

In this context we are looking for a profile that will be in charge of co-leading a dynamic, multi-national research group that performs cutting-edge, highly-demanding climate prediction experiments and participates in a number of international initiatives.

Key Duties:

Animating scientifically the group activities through the organization of topical meetings and individual discussions with each of the 16 members of the group

• Ensuring the sustainability of the group

• Writing a number of proposals to obtain funding and/or computing hours as well as organizing their implementation once funded since most of our resources come from competitive sources



-  PhD in physical oceanography, atmospheric physics, fluid dynamics, applied mathematics or in a related discipline

-  Experience as (co-) Principal Investigator or Work Package leader of national or international projects

- Proven ability to prepare and submit research proposals for funding or computing resources
- Experience in mentoring / advising post-doctoral researchers and/or PhD students
- Knowledge in climate, oceanography or atmospheric sciences
