Also Listing:

A 3-year postdoctoral researcher position in land surface modeling is available at NORCE Norwegian Research Centre AS, Climate, in Bergen, Norway. More experienced candidates will be considered for a permanent position as senior researcher.

The position can start as soon as possible, but the start date is negotiable.

The focus the work will be to improve our understandings on climate change interaction between permafrost and land surface using the coupled framework of the state-of-the-art Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM).

Main duties include but not limited to 1) implementing and improving permafrost related processes within the Community Land Model (CLM) or Community Terrestrial System Model (CTSM) for a more realistic representation of permafrost processes and consequences of permafrost thaw (e.g. thermokarst, infrastructure, flood, land use change, grazing, fire, and etc.), 2) working together with the NorESM community to evaluate models with observational data, and 3) maintain and analyze the CLM/CTSM in the framework of NorESM for the CMIP6 simulations.
