Postdoctoral researcher on regional climate modelling and analysis Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join their Research and Development of Weather and Climate models (RDWK) department. RDWK investigates and develops research tools for weather and air quality prediction applications and climate models. As a postdoctoral researcher you will process the output of regional and global climate models using state of the art analysis techniques. Regional climate model results include a large ensemble of simulations of the EURO-CORDEX project. In addition, regional climate simulations with so-called non-hydrostatic climate models (run at very high resolution) will be performed and analysed. Statistical analysis techniques to identify and characterise the systematic changes and the associated uncertainties due to global warming in these simulations will be further developed. You will interact within an international project and also with a KNMI project to produce the next generation of climate scenarios. You are expected to present your work at project meetings and at international conferences, and to publish the results in peer-reviewed journals. The work will be carried out as part of the EUCP project. EUCP is a EU funded project with the final aim to produce building blocks of a climate prediction system. Within the project mainly existing climate simulations (CMIP5/6, CORDEX) are analysed, and tools are developed to extract climate change information by weighting the different modelling streams and combining those with observations. * You have a PhD degree in climate modelling, climate analysis or a related field. * You have adequate programming and analysis skills. * You have experience with coding in Fortran or a similar programming language, Unix/Linux environments and analysis tools like CDO, Python, R, or similar software packages. * You are preferably experienced in using statistical techniques (e.g. extreme value theory). * You have good verbal and written communication skills. The position is temporary during a period of 4 years More details can be found: https://www.werkenvoornederland.nl/vacatures/detail/postdoctoral-researcher-on-regional-climate-modelling-and-analysis-KNMI-2017-0012 To apply in English use: https://www.tangram-tis.nl/10613/Kandidaten/Inschrijven/01911%2D306457245194 Geert Lenderink (firstname.lastname@example.org) KNMI
