*Call for postdoctoral fellowship in **Modeling and Observing Systems at
The recently granted *Center for Climate and Resilience Research* (
http://www.cr2.cl) by the Chilean Commission for Science and Technology
(CONICYT, http://www.conicyt.cl/fondap/) aims at becoming a world-class
research center focusing on *Earth System Science*, which in an
interdisciplinary manner and in close relation to stakeholders, improves
our understanding of the Earth System and is functional to the enhancement
of societal resilience in Chile.
We hereby invite applications for a *two-year postdoctoral fellowship* in
the research area of Modeling and Observing Systems, more specifically
climate change modeling*. The project that you will work on is part of a
collaborative effort between the CR2 and the Hadley Center (
Duties and Responsibilities:
As part of the CR2, the Postdoctoral Researcher will (1)
conduct regional climate modeling with the Hadley center regional model,
(2) Analyze existing regional simulations with ERA-Interim boundary
condition, (3) help design the best strategy for regional climate change
simulations, including the definition of metrics to evaluate skill,
robustness and uncertainties in regional climate change simulations.
Successful candidates will have a PhD in one of the following fields of
research: Atmospheric Sciences, Climate Modeling. Good programming skills,
and experience with regional climate modeling are highly desirable. Showing
willingness and ability to conduct independent research while being a team
player is also expected.
Salary is assigned according to CONICYT standards, equivalent to ca. 37
kUSD per year, which corresponds roughly to 2.5 times the Chilean per
