We have an exciting job opportunity for a (paleo) ocean modeller at NORCE and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen (Norway). This is a permanent researcher position. Please check the advertisement for details if you are interested and like to apply:


About the position:

We are looking for a researcher that brings oceanographic expertise to the application and analysis of the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM) in close collaboration with a wide range of earth system modellers at NORCE and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR) and the national NorESM consortium. The successful candidate is expected to contribute with modelling expertise to a vibrant national paleoclimatic community as well as develop a relevant research agenda. We offer an exciting job opportunity in the field of global ocean and earth system modelling. The position is full time and permanent, and initially funded for 2 years, primarily through the Research Council of Norway project ABRUPT Arctic Climate Change. By combining reconstructions of Dansgaard-Oeschger (DO) events occurring in the 30-40 ka time interval with multi-model simulations, ABRUPT will chart the distribution of sea ice and ocean states in the Nordic Seas during past abrupt changes to further our understanding of these enigmatic large scale climate shifts. This includes exploring how they might be relevant for future Arctic change. Smaller involvement in other ongoing projects, with similar competence required, must be expected. The successful candidate is expected to attract own funding through externally funded projects to support his/her position as well as bringing in new junior positions such as PhD students or postdocs. NORCE provides technical support to train its employees to develop and write competitive research proposals.

Application only possible through Jobbnorge system (see link above).
