Postdoctoral scientist – GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel
We are looking for a Postdoctoral scientist to conduct research on climate modelling focusing on Southern Ocean processes. It is part of the large-scale H2020 SO-CHIC project (2019-2023), in which 15 institutions across Europe participate (http://www.sochic-h2020.eu). The overall objective of SO-CHIC is to understand and quantify the variability of heat and carbon budgets in the Southern Ocean through an investigation of the key processes controlling exchanges between the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice using a combination of observational and modelling approaches.
The successful candidate will investigate the impact of the Southern Ocean polynya, particularly over the Weddell Sea, on the coupled climate system. The approach will be based on the analysis of the state-of-the-art climate model beyond IPCC-class, which resolves mesoscale eddies over the Southern Ocean. Notably, the successful candidate will run or analyse high-resolution AGCM and a global coupled model incorporating a nested oceanic grid refinement in the Weddell sector.
