Qualification Details

  • a university degree in meteorology, physics, maths or other related disciplines in natural sciences and Earth science is essential. A Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline would be beneficial
  • experience in the field of regional and/or global modelling of the climate or Earth system
  • experience in post-processing of climate data for scientific application
  • familiarity with the analysis of data sets from climate models. Profound knowledge in appropriate programming languages such as Python and R and experience with Linux/Unix computer environments
  • experience in contributing (scientifically and organizationally) to international scientific projects and networks, such as the WCRP CORDEX and CLIVAR Programmes
  • experience in communicating scientific results to scientists of the vulnerability, impact, adaptation and climate services communities

Responsibilities/Job Description

In Denmark and Northern Europe winters are relatively warm and moist, while summers only rarely are hot and dry, providing us a hospital climate despite a northern latitude. However, due to frequent blocking in the atmospheric flow extended periods of severe precipitation or temperature anomalies often prevail. In GreenPlanning the aim is to provide new knowledge to explain some of these major year-to-year and decadal scale fluctuations in weather related to large-scale atmospheric modes of variability. Specifically, we target the influence from Greenland Ice sheet melt on climate fluctuations in our region. We hypothesize that variations in the melt water contributes to shaping of the surrounding sea surface temperatures and in term control large-scale atmospheric circulation.

The postdoc’s duties will include research within climate modelling evaluation and analyses to compare dominant modes of climate variability with prognostic climate models and paleo reconstructions of these modes of variability over the last two millennia. Furthermore, activities will also involve the comparison of estimates of ice melt provided by other GreenPlanning collaborators with changes in the modes of variability in the North Atlantic region.
