[Met-jobs] Researcher position in at the Bjerknes center for climate research

From Nour-Eddine Omrani <>
Date Mon, 17 Feb 2020 23:26:32 +0100

We are advertising a 2-year researcher position at the University of Bergen, Norway. The position is at the Geophysical Institute of the university of Bergen, which is a part of the Bjerknes Center for Climate Research. The position is in the field of Climate Dynamics including the dynamics of the stratosphere/troposphere coupled system. It will be within the Bjerknes Climate Prediction Unit (BCPU), which focuses on predicting climate in the Atlantic-to-Arctic sector from seasonal to multidecadal timescales.

The main aim of the position is to improve the understanding and modelling of the mechanisms of climate variability in the Atlantic-to-Arctic regions and surrounding continents. Potential topics of research include (1) the processes governing the local interaction among the stratosphere/troposphere coupled system, Atlantic Ocean and Arctic sea-ice, (2) the processes governing the remote teleconnection of the extratropical Atlantic regions to the tropics and Pacific, (3) impact of natural and anthropogenic radiative forcing. The focus will be on the season-to-multidecadal timescales. The work will involve both analysis of data (model, observations, and reanalysis) and performing climate model simulations. The candidate will mainly use the Norwegian Prediction Model (NorCPM) and will participate in developing and validating the stratosphere-resolving version of the model. There will be close collaboration with the developers of the Norwegian Earth System and Climate Prediction Models and other groups working on data assimilation.

The deadline for the application is 2nd March 2020. For details and online application, please use this "" website:
