We are happy to announce an open PhD position at the University of Bergen (see below).  A 2-year postdoc also connected with this project will be advertised soon. If you are interested or know of any good candidates who might be interested for either, please have them contact the project PI’s for more information.

PhD opportunity in large-scale atmospheric dynamics at the University of Bergen

We’d like to draw your attention to an open PhD position (3 years) in large-scale atmospheric dynamics at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. The position is connected to a project on "Dynamics of Arctic-Midlatitude Teleconnections: Mechanisms, robustness and tropical modulation" funded by the Research Council of Norway. The application deadline is 1 November 2016.

This project takes a dynamics-based approach to investigate whether the rapidly changing climate in the Arctic is altering midlatitude atmospheric circulation. Though there are many theories for how Arctic-midlatitude teleconnections operate, there is as of yet no consensus about their importance relative to other influences (e.g., the tropics, the stratosphere). The answer to 
this question is essential for understanding both year-to-year variations in regional climate and weather extremes, and projecting how these will change in a warming world. The successful candidate will use reanalysis data and numerical models to identify and evaluate candidate mechanisms.
