Vacant postdoctoral fellow position (4 years) in Climate Dynamics

Dear colleagues,

There is a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow position at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen / Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research within global and regional climate variability. The postdoctoral fellow position is for a period of 4 years starting fall 2016. I would greatly appreciated if you could forward this information and also inform potential candidates at your department about this opportunity.

About the project/work tasks:
The postdoc project will consist of two parts; detection and attribution of climate change, and teleconnection from tropical Pacific to high latitudes. Both observations and archived climate model output will be used. The work will focus on:

  • Assessing the relationship between global temperature change and natural and forced climate drivers
  • Identifying the roles of ocean heat uptake and storage in evolution of global mean temperatures
  • Studying the relationship between high latitude climatic trends and sea surface state in the tropical Pacific
  • Performing sensitivity experiments with sea surface temperature perturbations in the tropical Pacific

Deadline for application is 1 June!

Yours Sincerely,

Tore Furevik
