A 2-year postdoctoral
researcher position in land surface modeling is available at Uni
Research Climate in Bergen, Norway, with the possibility of
being extended. More experienced candidates
can be considered for a permanent researcher position. The focus will be to improve our
understandings on permafrost carbon climate feedbacks using the
coupled framework of the state-of-the-art Norwegian Earth System
together with the NorESM community to
conduct simulations to understand permafrost carbon climate
The successful candidate should have a PhD degree or the equivalent in the discipline of either mathematics, physics, or geosciences with a strong background in ESM particularly on the representation of surface energy balance, snow cover, permafrost, hydrology, biogeochemistry, and/or glacier mass balance. Furthermore, the candidate must present evidence that she/he is capable of programming enough to modifying the model source code to facilitate improvements of the model physics. The candidate should have experience with Earth System Model structure, particularly previous experience with CLM is most beneficial. The candidate should further have experience with evaluation of model results using field observations and have knowledge in high-latitude environments.
The successful candidate should further demonstrate:
The application must include:
*Foreign applicants are recommended to attach an explanation of their University’s grading system.
*Please remember that all documents should either be in English or a Scandinavian language.
Salary and work environment:
Salary is decided by agreement. Uni Research AS has an employee pension and insurance agreement. The successful applicant must comply with the guidelines that apply to the position.
As a partner in BCCR, we can offer numerous training and career development opportunities via CHESS (The Norwegian Research School on Changing Climate in the coupled Earth System). For more information about Uni Research and BCCR, please visit http://uni.no/klima and http://www.bjerknes.uib.no.
