Research fellow in land-atmosphere interactions

Closing date: 26 March 2017
University of Leeds, UK
This project will improve our understanding of land-atmosphere interactions, improving prediction of seasonal precipitation and how this is modulated by changes to the land-surface, with implications for predictions across all time scales.

W1 Junior Professorship Arctic Climate Changes (with tenure track leading to W2)

Closing date: 31 March 2017
University of Leipzig, Germany
The university is looking for a young researcher (PhD student) who will work in the field of measurement technology for unmanned aircraft and ground-stations. The position is embedded in new research projects in the fields of aerosol formation / transport, and wind energy / wind-turbine interaction, both inland and off-shore and micro-meteorological measurement technology and sensors.

Co-leader of the climate prediction group

Closing date: 01 April 2017
Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), Barcelona, Spain
This position requires an ambitious researcher with interest in coordinating and supervising the group scientific activities, representing the group on international panels (e.g. CLIVAR) and international scientific meetings, nourishing the group with innovative lines.

3 year PostDoc position in Dynamic Meteorology

Closing date: 02 April 2017
University of Bergen, Norway
From June 2017 there is a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow position at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen, Norway in atmospheric dynamics. The postdoc position will focus on air-sea interaction processes in the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio regions with emphasis on the mechanisms acting on the temporal and spatial scales from fronts to synoptic storms.

PhD/Postdoc positions on modelling ice-sheet/climate interaction with CESM-CISM

Closing date: not specified
TU Delft, The Netherlands
The Department of Geoscience & Remote Sensing of TU Delft, The Netherlands, invites researchers who are interested in a cryosphere/climate related PhD/post-doc position to submit an application to model the Greenland ice sheet and/or Laurentide ice sheet and/or its climate with the Community Earth System Model coupled to the Community Ice Sheet Model.

Research scientist position on atmospheric variability and predictability – R2

Closing date: 09 April 2017
Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), Barcelona, Spain
Within BSC-ES the climate prediction group aims at developing a climate modelling and prediction capability for time scales ranging from a few weeks to a few decades into the future (sub-seasonal to decadal climate prediction) and from regional to global scales. The group has a particular focus on the benefits of high-resolution global modelling. The group members use the EC-Earth European global climate model for their developments and collaborate closely with all the members of the EC-Earth consortium.

Postdoc position in the field of the optical turbulence forecast

Closing date: 10 April 2017
Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF), Florence, Italy
The candidate is supposed to join the Optical Turbulence research group and to be involved in all national and international projects carried on by the group in the field of the optical turbulence forecast applied to the ground-based astronomy.
Experts in atmospherical numerical modeling are encouraged to apply.
