[Met-jobs] Job publication: Climate Researcher on Propagation of Uncertainties (R2)

From BSC RRHH <>
Date Wed, 22 May 2019 09:45:40 +0200

Context And Mission

Within the Earth Sciences Department of Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-ES), led by Prof Francisco Doblas-Reyes, the climate prediction group, led Dr. Pablo Ortega and Dr. Louis-Philippe Caron, aims at developing climate prediction capability for time scales ranging from a few weeks to a few decades and from regional to global scales. The group 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 is funded by the ESA contract CMUG-CCI+, whose main goal is to ensure that the ESA-CCI data products are developed and provided in a form most useful for climate analysis and modelling work. 

The successful applicant will be responsible for the completion of Task 3.4, dedicated to the propagation of observational uncertainties to climate models scales in a set of variables that are relevant for the study of wild fires.

Key Duties

  • Apply method developed in Bellprat et al. (2018) to investigate how observational
    uncertainties propagate to space-time means.
  • Compare the propagated observational uncertainties from the ECV CCI product to that derived from differences in different observational products.
  • This task will require interaction with each of the CCI ECV teams to determine the best currently available knowledge of error correlation scales in space and in time for the different ECVs.
