DMI seeks Research Fellow High Resolution Arctic Regional Climate System Modelling

24. oktober 2014


The Danish Meteorological Institute has a vacancy for a Research Fellow
in the field of high resolution Arctic regional climate system
modelling. The fellowship position is for a fixed period of 3 years, and
will be based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The candidate’s focus will be on performance of the model over Greenland
and with a special emphasis of representing the local climate at the
east cost of Greenland, in particular the complex Scoresbysund setting.
Focus will be on local surface mass balance over the ice sheet and the
Renland glacier in particular. The work will contribute to the
development of a dynamic high resolution system model of the Greenland
ice sheet, the coastal regions and interactions with the surrounding
ocean, and to study changes in the ice sheet as a consequence of changes
in Arctic climate and sea ice.

Applicants must have a Master’s Degree or equivalent in physics,
mathematics, earth science (including geology, climate, meteorology,
oceanography) or similar fields relevant to the PhD subject, or have
submitted a Master’s Thesis for evaluation before the expiry of the
application deadline. Ideally, candidates will also have practical
experience in climate dynamics and modelling (preferably regional
climate modelling, modelling of ice sheets or interactions between land
ice and ocean), be skilled at programming in FORTRAN/UNIX, and have
knowledge about HPC computing.

Application deadline: 9 November 2014.

For further information or to submit your application (which must
include examination results, a curriculum vitae, a brief letter of
interest, and the names and contact details for three referees), go to:
