Postdoc Position: Soil Moisture Data Assimilation

Closing date: not specified
NeuroSpin Research Center, Gif-sur-Yvette (near Paris), France
The French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) invites applications for a post-doctoral position in the Cognitive Neuroimaging Group as part of the research team of Dr. Aaron Schurger. The Schurger lab focuses on understanding how decisions are made and actions initiated spontaneously and how time series of neural activity (now) can be used to forecast behavior (seconds or minutes from now). INSERM is particularly interested in attracting applicants from meteorology, macroeconomics, machine learning, statistics and other disciplines that involve a mastery of time series analysis, statistical learning, forecasting, and/or forecast verification.

Postdoc position: Carbon Isotopes in the Community Earth System Model

Closing date: not specified
University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland
Uni Bern offers the opportunity to further develop and apply the Community Earth System Model (CESM) to study carbon isotope variations over the industrial period and the next century. A second research focus is the analysis of coupled climate-carbon cycle simulations for the last millennia or for step-like forcing changes.

PhD position: Modeling terrestrial methane emissions and climate

Closing date: not specified
University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland
Uni Bern offers the opportunity to further develop and apply the LPX-Bern Dynamic Global Vegetation Model. Variations in the greenhouse gas methane (CH4) are investigated over glacial-interglacial periods and during abrupt climate events for improved climate projections. The objective is to understand mechanisms of past and future CH4 changes as constrained by ice core data measured by the division.

ECMWF: Scientist- Diurnal cycle in the ocean

Closing date: 08 June 2017
ECMWF, Shinfield Park, Reading, UK
The aim is to diagnose the amplitude and phase of the diurnal cycle in surface and sub-surface ocean temperature of the ECMWF coupled Earth system model. The research will contribute to diurnal cycle ocean diagnostics studies with perspective of participation in workshops involving the oceanographic and numerical weather prediction community.
