Dear colleagues,
 
The Centre for Biogeochemistry in the Anthropocene at the University of Oslo is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with experience in modeling the land surface processes in climate models.
 
The fellowship is part of the project “A green-blue link made browner: how terrestrial climate change affects marine ecology (GreenBlue)” for a period of three years, with an expected starting date early January 2020. The successful candidate will also work in the LATICE (“Land-ATmosphere Interactions in Cold Environments”) research group with scientists with expertise within various disciplines related to observing, analyzing and parameterization of the land surface.
 
Qualifications :
 
Applications are encouraged from dedicated candidates with strong quantitative skills and technical expertise in computer software and programming. Previous experience with numerical modelling is essential, in particular the parametrization of land surface processes in climate and/or distributed hydrological models.
  • Applicants must hold a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in Geosciences, or a related discipline; e.g., a PhD in Physics or Mathematics with experience in the earth sciences. Doctoral dissertation must be submitted for evaluation by the closing date. Appointment is dependent on the public defense of the doctoral thesis being approved.
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English is required 
  • Applications are encouraged from dedicated candidates with strong quantitative skills and technical expertise in computer software and programming. Previous experience with numerical modelling is essential, in particular the parametrization of land surface processes in climate and/or distributed hydrological models.

The successful candidate should further demonstrate:

  • Technical expertise in scripting (e.g. Python, R) or programming (e.g. C, FORTRAN)
  • Evidence of creativity and capability of independent research
  • Knowledge of large data analysis and visualization tools
  • Ability and willingness to participate in interdisciplinary research

Creativity and innovation are valued, as is a demonstrated high working capacity, passion for research, and self-motivation. The candidate should expect to work in a highly collaborative team-oriented environment and participate in a wide array of activities related to land-atmosphere processes with an emphasis on land surface processes in cold environments.

The postdoctoral research fellow will be part of a motivated research team with a high number of early career scientists working together in a highly interdisciplinary environment.
