*Call for a postdoctoral fellowship in Paleo Climate **Modelling*
The Millennium Nucleus in “Paleoclimate of the Southern Hemisphere” invites
applications for a *one-year postdoctoral fellowship* in paleoclimate
modeling (possibly renewable for another year). The main goal of our
research group is to understand the evolution of the coupled atmosphere,
ocean and biosphere over broadly the last 25,000 years over the Southern
Hemisphere. More specifically our study areas include western Patagonia and
the adjacent Ocean.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Climate
Modelling or related field. Good programming skills, and experience in
paleo climate modeling are highly desirable. Showing willingness and
ability to conduct independent research while being a team player is also
expected. You will join an active research group that addresses the study
of paleoclimate combining empirical and modelling approaches, with
opportunities of fieldwork in Patagonia. We are an interdisciplinary
research team with expertise in the disciplines of atmospheric sciences,
empirical and physical paleo-oceanography, paleo-ecology and glacial
Salary is assigned according to CONICYT standards, equivalent to ca. 29
kUSD per year, which corresponds roughly to 2.5 times the Chilean per
capita average income.
Interested applicants should send their CV and a brief research proposal
(up to 2 pages) to Dr. Maisa Rojas (maisa at dgf.uchile.cl) by *September 30
2015*. The selected candidate is expected to start early 2016. For more
information don’t hesitate to contact me.
