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.

Project/work tasks
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 
gas variability.
