Please note that we have extended the application deadline for the below job-offer to February 9. Please also note that although we are looking for someone with experience in terrestrial carbon cycle modelling, we will also consider strong candidates with experience in Earth system modelling in general. Thanks and best wishes Jörg Schwinger --------------------------------------- A 3-year postdoctoral fellowship position is available for the research topic “terrestrial carbon cycle feedbacks under overshoot scenarios” at the biogeochemistry group of NORCE Climate and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. Depending on performance and the general funding situation, there is the possibility that a permanent position is offered after 3 years. We offer an exciting job-opportunity in the field of global carbon cycle and Earth system modelling within the newly initiated project entitled “Emit now, mitigate later? IMPlications of temperature OverShoots for the Earth system” funded by the Research Council of Norway. The overarching goal of this project is to define limits for overshoot duration and magnitude beyond which potentially dangerous irreversible changes in the Earth system might occur. This is an exciting and challenging area of science, and we are looking for a motivated, curiosity-driven person, with experience in modelling the terrestrial carbon cycle and in analyzing Earth system model projections. The project has interesting international collaborations with Lund University (vegetation and fire modelling), University of Bern (global carbon cycle modeling), and the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (integrated assessment modelling). The position will be affiliated with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, which provides a lively and stimulating work environment. Specific work tasks: * Conduct and analyze simulations of (realistic and idealized) overshoot scenarios with the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM) with a focus on permafrost and high latitude vegetation carbon feedbacks. * Critically review simplified carbon cycle models (e.g. global box models) as to how well they simulate global carbon cycle dynamics under overshoot conditions. * Develop improvements for simplified carbon cycle model where weaknesses for overshoot conditions have been identified. * Publish results in high level peer reviewed journals. Education requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD within meteorology, physics, mathematics, biology or related fields. Qualifications, Skills and Abilities: * A strong background in terrestrial biogeochemistry and Earth system modelling, and knowledge of carbon cycle dynamics in general is required * Experience with modelling the terrestrial carbon cycle is required * Skills in handling, analysing, and visualizing large model data sets are required * Experience in working with Linux/Unix environments and with high level programming languages (e.g. FORTRAN, Matlab, R, Python) is required * Experience with running Earth system models is an advantage * Experience with permafrost or vegetation modelling is an advantage * Ability to work across disciplines * Good team working skills while being proactive * Proficiency in both written and oral English We can offer: * A good and professionally challenging working environment * Career development training * A competitive salary * Excellent welfare benefits * Opportunities for independent project development * Possibility to influence your own work, work-time and choice of solutions Depending on performance and on the general funding situation a permanent position as researcher might be offered after 3 years. Your application must include: * A brief account of your research interests and motivation for applying for the position * The names and contact information of two references * CV including a list of scientific publications * Transcripts, diplomas and relevant certificates * If a PhD has not yet been awarded: An official confirmation that the doctoral thesis has been submitted * The application and appendices with certified translations into English or a Scandinavian language must be uploaded at our recruitment portal Jobbnorge General information: If you have any scientific questions about the position, please contact: Jörg Schwinger <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> (email@example.com) or Hanna Lee <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> (email@example.com). Questions about the application process can be directed to HR Adviser Julia Dale <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> (email@example.com).

Application deadline is: February 9th, 2020. --------------------------------------------------------------- Jörg Schwinger NORCE Climate & Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research Jahnebakken 5, 5007 Bergen, Norway Phone: +47 56107551 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org http://bjerknes.uib.no/en/user/572 ---------------------------------------------------------------
