Post-doctoral position in meteorology
Post-doctoral position in meteorology at the Department of Meteorology. Reference number SU 619-1770-11. (Deadline for applications: August 31, 2011.) Prolonged application time! New deadline for applications: September 30, 2011.
The successful candidate will work on boundary-layer parameterizations in general and in particular on the stably stratified boundary layer. The position is part of an effort to develop unified and consistent parameterizations for global modeling in a seasonal forecasting context. The project will involve compiling relevant observational data for evaluation of new parameterizations as well as coding of new schemes in numerical models and running model tests. The models will primarily be regional and global models in the hierarchy of the US Navy environmental prediction system but other models may also apply, such as the EC-Earth global climate model.
The position is funded through the US Navy, Office of Naval Research Departmental Research Initiative (www.onr.navy.mil) on “Unified Physics Parameterizations for Seasonal Prediction” and will be placed at the Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University, www.misu.su.se. The Department of Meteorology is also a partner in the Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research, www.bbcc.su.se.
The applicant should have a PhD in Meteorology or Atmospheric Science, or similar qualifications, and preferably have experience in boundary layer dynamics and/or numerical modeling.
In the appointment process special weight will be given to scientific proficiency.
Conditions of employment
The position is full time for a maximum of two years.
For more information, contact Professor Michael Tjernström, email@example.com, telephone +46-(0)70-205 66 31, or Professor Gunilla Svensson, firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone +46-(0)70-255 54 71.
