Dear Gokhan, dear Steve,

Hope you had a good start to 2019!

We are looking for an climate modeller. In case you have any good
candidates in mind, could you forward them the below announcement.


Postdoctoral Fellow within Climate Modelling

There is a vacancy for a postdoctoral position at the Geophysical
Institute, University of Bergen <http://www.uib.no/en/gfi> in the field of
Climate Modelling. The position is for a period of 4 years and is
associated with externally funded projects.

*About the project/work tasks*

Research Council of Norway funds the postdoctoral position in the Nansen
Legacy project, which aims to make an integrated assessment of climate and
ecosystem change in the Barents Seas. The position will be within the
Bjerknes Climate Prediction Unit that focuses on predicting climate in the
Atlantic-to-Arctic sector from a season and beyond. There will be synergies
with the European Union H2020 project *Blue Action: Arctic Impact on
Weather and Climate* (http://blue-action.eu/); and the NordForsk Nordic
Centre of Excellence ARCPATH (http://www.ncoe-arcpath.org). Both
multi-disciplinary projects aim to provide insights into future changes in
the Artic, both climatic and societal.

The main focus of the postdoctoral position will be to develop a higher
resolution version of the Norwegian Earth System Model that is more
suitable for representing the interaction between the North Atlantic,
Nordic Seas, and Arctic and to better capture ocean-atmosphere interaction
over mid-latitude sea surface temperature fronts. The applicant will use
the model to study variability and predictability of climate in the
Arctic-to-Atlantic sector. There will be close collaboration with the
developers of the Norwegian Earth System and Climate Prediction Models, and
specifically with those working on mechanistic assessment, data
assimilation, and biogeochemistry.
