Postdoc/Researcher in Marine Biogeochemistry and Climate Research
NORCE Climate and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, Bergen, Norway
Closing date: 23 April 2019
A two-year postdoctoral fellowship/researcher position (with a possibility for extension) is available for the research topic “Assessment of climate change impacts on marine biogeochemistry using Earth system models” at the biogeochemistry group of NORCE Climate and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. NORCE Climate conducts basic and applied research on the climate system, on anthropogenic climate change and its impact on societies, and on the feasibility of climate change mitigation options. NORCE Climate is one of the four partners of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, which is the largest climate research centre in the Scandinavian countries and among the leading centres in Europe. The biogeochemistry group works on quantifying the global cycles of carbon and related elements, on better constraining future projections of these cycles, and on sustainable mitigation options.
This is an exciting job-opportunity in the field of marine biogeochemistry and Earth system modelling. You will analyze the ensemble of CMIP5/6 Earth system models with the aim to evaluate these models based on observable quantities. The final goal is to constrain future projections of the CMIP ensemble to support climate change risk assessments (e.g. future IPCC assessments).
