*_2 PhD + 1 PostDoc positions on coupled Greenland ice sheet and climate 
modeling with CESM-CISM_*

*Job description*

The research team will investigate past, present and future interactions 
between the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) and the climate system with the 
Community Earth System Model (CESM,http://www2.cesm.ucar.edu 
<http://www2.cesm.ucar.edu/>) coupled to the Community Ice Sheet Model 
version 2 (_CISM2, http://oceans11.lanl.gov/cism/index.htm_l). CESM is a 
global climate model capable of realistic simulation of GrIS surface 
mass balance, including explicit calculations of melt and refreezing. 
The offered projects will participate in the International Model 
Intercomparison Project  6 (ISMIP6).

The topics for these positions are: 1) Future GrIS evolution up to A.D. 
2300: surface mass balance processes and coupling with the atmosphere; 
2) The future multi-century coupled GrIS and climate evolution; and 3) 
GrIS and climate coupling during the last interglacial (127,000 years BP).


PhD applicants should have a master in meteorology, oceanography, Earth 
Sciences or Physics, experience with FORTRAN90 and geophysical models 
and Unix-Linux environments. Experience with CESM, CISM or similar 
climate and/or ice sheet models is a plus. Good English oral and writing 
skills are required.

Postdoc applicants should have a PhD on Earth Sciences, meteorology, 
oceanography or glaciology and experience in climate and/or ice sheet 
modeling. Excellent skills in FORTRAN90 programming, Linux/Unix shell 
scripting, and handling/visualization of large model output are 
necessary, as well as in oral and written English.

*We offer*

Full-time positions during four (PhD) and three (Post-Doc) years. 
Funding is provided from the ERC-awarded (https://erc.europa.eu ) 
project “CoupledIceClim”.


The research team will work at the Department of Geoscience and Remote 
Sensing, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands 
(www.grs.citg.delft.nl <http://www.grs.citg.delft.nl/>). The team will 
collaborate with the Ice and Climate group of IMAU (Utrecht University, 
The Netherlands), and scientists from the National Center for 
Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and Los Alamos National Lab (LANL), in the US.


Please send a letter of motivation, curriculum vitae and (email) 
addresses of two referees to Miren Vizcaino at M.Vizcaino at tudelft.nl 
<mailto:M.Vizcaino at tudelft.nl> with Subject: “ERC-CoupledIceClim 
positions”, at the latest by May  31^st  2016.  Starting date is between 
June 1st and October 1st 2016.
