The Climatology group of the Institute of Geography and Oeschger Centre, University of Bern, led by Prof. Stefan Brönnimann announces an opening for a postdoctoral position in global climate modeling in the framework of the ERC project PALAEO-RA. The goal of this project is to reconstruct global climate of the past centuries using instrumental and documentary data as well as proxies in an off-line data assimilation approach. The task of the postdoctoral scientist is to set up and maintain long, large-ensemble simulations with ECHAM-family climate models (atmosphere and ocean models, uncoupled). In addition to forming the basis of the assimilation approach, the simulations will provide a unique data set for the analysis of large-scale, interannual-to-multidecadal climate variability over the past 600 yrs. We are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative candidate who will exploit this unique data basis to further his or her own career.

The successful candidate has a background in climate and environmental physics or similar and demonstrated experience in climate modeling. Further requirements are very good English language skills, a competitive publication record and interpersonal skills. The candidate will have the possibility to co-supervise MSc and PhD students. Applications from female candidates are encouraged.

Screening of applications starts 2 January and continues until the position is filled. The position will start 1 April 2019. Please send your CV and publication list as well as names of three references IN ONE PDF-FILE to
