About the position
NILU is a dynamic research institute providing expertise on a wide range of climate and environmental topics. NILU’s Atmosphere and climate (ATMOS) department focuses on atmospheric composition and the climate system, aiming to better understand processes that drive temporal and spatial variability and trends affecting climate, ecosystems, hazards, and health.
The ATMOS department is seeking a postdoctoral scientist to work on an exciting, new European project from the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S ), devoted to land-atmosphere coupling (CERISE) .
The successful candidate will analyse existing and experimental seasonal forecasts produced by 5 leading meteorological centers in Europe to assess the accuracy and reliability of snow forecasts and the role of snow in atmospheric teleconnections and in land-atmosphere coupling. He/She will also carry out diagnostics work on land re-analyses. The work will be done in close collaboration with the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF, UK), which coordinates the project.
- PhD in atmospheric or climate science, atmospheric physics, or meteorology.
- Strong analytical, statistical, and programming skills and extensive experience in handling large datasets.
- It is anticipated that well-documented code/scripts/algorithms will be made available to the project members.
- Ability and aptitude to work independently and to network with others.
- Some familiarity with the ECWMF forecast products and archiving system would be an advantage.
- Candidates are also expected to have strong writing skills and to contribute to writing scientific reports and publications and interests in dissemination and outreach activities.
At NILU, we work for our common future. Our research contributes to the fight against climate change and to secure a healthy environment and a sustainably society. This means that work is more than just work: what we do each day makes a difference.
We offer flexible working hours, work-from-home agreements, subsidised fitness training, and excellent pension and insurance schemes. Salary is competitive.
During a working day at NILU, you will encounter:
- An international and interdisciplinary environment with pleasant colleagues from all over the world
- Great creativity and generous sharing of knowledge
- Broad experience and excellent opportunities for professional development
- A global network of partners
Most of our approximately 180 employees work at the main office in Kjeller, a short train ride from Oslo. We also have an office in Tromsø and one office in Tronheim.
Applications must include a cover letter describing relevant experience, references, and a curriculum vitae. The position is for two years. For questions about the position, please contact Research Director Kjetil Tørseth (email@example.com), Atmospheric and Climate research at NILU, or the project leader Dr. Yvan Orsolini (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Starting date is flexible but no later than January 1, 2023.
At NILU, our greatest strength is our outstanding employees. They contribute to NILU’s leading position both nationally and internationally – and to a pleasant working environment.
We do research from pole to pole – from Zeppelin in Svalbard to Trollhaugen in Antarctica. Our research helps increase knowledge about climate change, the composition of the atmosphere, air quality, sustainable transitions and environmental toxins – as well as how all these factors affect health and the environment. Every year, NILU performs hundreds of research commissions, large and small, for public and private customers, in Norway and internationally.
NILU is an independent research foundation with no owners who collect dividends. Instead, all profits are reinvested in operating and developing research services that benefit society. We place great emphasis on open research, open publishing, and open source code – because knowledge is meant to be shared.
At NILU, all employees are equal, regardless of gender, age, disability, creed/philosophy of life, language, cultural differences and sexual orientation. We respect and value individual characteristics, and do not accept any form of discrimination.
