16-month post-doc offer on analysis of extreme events as simulated by climate 
models

The Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE) is offering 
a 16-month postdoctoral
position for the analysis of how ensembles of climate model simulations 
estimate changes in
extreme weather and climate events, especially as a function of number of 
simulation members or
model resolution. This analysis is done within the Copernicus Climate Change 
Service framework.

Context: Climate services are developing in many places around the world, using 
climate simulations
and observations for adaptation to and mitigation of climate change. Ensemble 
climate simulations
can help in particular to evaluate change in risks of damaging extreme events. 
European activities and
stakeholders may need a specific processing of simulations that are carried out 
internationally, or may
need dedicated simulations. The goal of the CRECP Project (Copernicus Roadmap 
for European
Climate projections) of the Copernicus Climate Change Service is to establish a 
roadmap for research
and simulation production in such a perspective. This requires preliminary 
analyses of existing
simulations. The post-doc position offered aims at developing these analyses 
and participating to the
roadmap writing.

Full details are attached.
