We have an opening for a 2.5 year researcher position in paleo ocean
biogeochemical cycle hosted at the University of Bergen, Norway.
More information of the position is available through this link:
There is a vacancy for a temporary research position at the Geophysical
Institute (www.uib.no/gfi/en <http://www.uib.no/gfi/en>) within the
field of the marine carbon cycle. The position is for a period of 2.5
years. The position is linked to the project "Biogeochemical Change and
Detection (BIGCHANGE)”, funded by a strategic grant from the Centre for
Climate Dynamics at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.
The project BIGCHANGE aims to identify and quantify imprints of climate
on the carbon cycle, specifically at high latitudes. The project
integrates interdisciplinary scientists from biogeochemical,
paleoclimate, observational, and modeling backgrounds.
The main focus of the work will be to apply the Norwegian Earth System
Model (NorESM) to simulate and determine mean ocean physical and
biogeochemical states in past warm climates with the aim to
contextualise and dynamically interpret proxy reconstructions. The
specific periods of interest are the warm Pliocene and the different
warm stages of glacial-interglacial cycles. Overall the work should add
to our understanding of the role of the ocean for atmospheric greenhouse
