[Met-jobs] Post-Doctoral Researcher in Climate Extremes, Uppsala University

From Gabriele Messori <>
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2018 16:48:00 +0200

We invite applications for a post-doctoral researcher in climate dynamics at the Department of Earth Sciences of Uppsala University. This positon provides funding for 2 years, with the possibility for outstanding candidates to progress to a research scientist position after this.


The focus will be on characterising the large-scale drivers and improve the prediction of mid-latitude weather extremes by combining the study of atmospheric dynamics with a statistical/mathematical approach.


The exact focus of the research is flexible, providing a unique opportunity for the candidate to develop his/her own original ideas.


Possible topics may include – but are not limited to – the identification of recurring planetary wave-breaking patterns linked to regional extremes, the use of dynamical systems theory to characterise the predictability of instantaneous atmospheric states, the use of idealised models to study the co-occurrence of geographically remote extreme weather events. The postdoc will also have the opportunity to engage in teaching/supervising duties.


For full details and to apply:


The dealine for applications is the 11th November, with a start date in January 2019 or later.


You are welcome to contact Dr. Gabriele Messori ( with any questions.
