Postdoc Position in Coupled Climate-Carbon Cycle Modelling

The Climate Research Lab in the Department of Geography at Simon Fraser University, led by Dr. Kirsten Zickfeld, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in coupled-climate carbon cycle modelling. Simon Fraser University is located in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a vibrant metropolitan area situated in a spectacular natural setting of ocean and mountains.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic group with expertise in Earth system modelling, climate dynamics and climate-carbon cycle interactions on decadal to centennial timescales. The focus of the research will be in one of the following areas: 1) Reversibility of climate changes in “overshoot” scenarios, i.e. scenarios that temporarily exceed a given temperature limit, 2) Earth system response to artificial removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, 3) Carbon budgets consistent with limiting warming to the temperature limits set by the Paris Agreement (1.5°C and 2°C warming above pre-industrial). Research questions will be addressed using an Earth System Modelling framework, e.g. the UVic Earth System Climate Model run in house, and/or climate model archives such as the Climate Modelling Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6).

Funding is available for one year, with possibility of renewal for one additional year. The preferred start date is 1st October 2019.

Evaluation of applications will start on 5 August 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
