A permanent researcher position is available in the field of ice sheet and climate modeling at NORCE Climate and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.


The main task will be to further develop, improve and analyze the coupling of the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM) with an ice sheet model (currently CISM). Scientifically, the initial focus is on the interactions between the atmosphere (surface mass balance, atmospheric circulation, clouds) and the Greenland ice sheet.


The researcher will be part of the large Norwegian infrastructure project INES which boosts the development of NorESM and be connected to KeyClim, a 4 year scientific project focusing on key Earth system processes in the Arctic and high Northern latitudes. Furthermore, the researcher will be involved in RISES, a strategic core project at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research dealing with ice sheets and their interaction with atmospheric circulation and basal hydrology.


Coupled ice sheet and climate modelling is an exciting, relevant and challenging area of science, and we are looking for a highly motivated person to join our ice sheet - sea level team at NORCE Climate. Coupled ice sheet – climate modeling is a priority in NORCE Climate as well as in the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, and we are actively looking to strengthen and expand this activity in the coming years. The successful applicant will be expected to apply for (inter)national funding.
