[Met-jobs] Job publication: Researcher for global-regional climate analysis (R2)

Context And Mission

The Earth Sciences Department of Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-ES), led by Prof Francisco Doblas-Reyes, the climate prediction group, aims at, among other objectives, developing a capability to develop and provide climate information for a variety of time scales ranging from a few weeks to a few decades and from regional to global scales. The department is also part of the development team and a key user of the EC-Earth global climate model ( and as such collaborates closely with all the members of the EC-Earth consortium.

The position offered aims at studying a suite of global and regional climate simulations, including high-resolution climate simulations performed as part of the European H2020 project PRIMAVERA, comparing them with the best observations available, estimating metrics that assess the model fitness for purpose and developing regional climate information that makes the best use of both global and regional climate models.

The successful applicant will develop regional climate information and collaborate with scientists in the department who develop climate services and engage with climate-vulnerable sectors to illustrate the added value of this climate information.

Key Duties

  • Perform process-based analyses of the global CMIP5, CMIP6 and PRIMAVERA simulations and the suite of CORDEX experiments over Europe, Africa and South America
  • Contribute to the global climate simulations performed with the EC-Earth model
  • Work in collaboration with the department software engineers to implement and run the common tools to estimate diagnostics and metrics on the simulations available (e.g. ESMValTool)
  • Implement methodologies for model classification and combination leading to robust climate information with reliable uncertainty estimates
  • Explore the relative merits of storyline methodologies to distill climate messages and develop action-oriented climate information
  • Engage with the climate service development activities
