*PhD opportunity in large-scale atmospheric dynamics at the University 
of Bergen*

We’d like to draw your attention to an open PhD position (3 years) in 
large-scale atmospheric dynamics at the Geophysical Institute, 
University of Bergen and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. The 
position is connected to a project on "Dynamics of Arctic-Midlatitude 
Teleconnections: Mechanisms, robustness and tropical modulation" funded 
by the Research Council of Norway. The application deadline is 1 
November 2016.

This project takes a dynamics-based approach to investigate whether the 
rapidly changing climate in the Arctic is altering midlatitude 
atmospheric circulation. Though there are many theories for how 
Arctic-midlatitude teleconnections operate, there is as of yet no 
consensus about their importance relative to other influences (e.g., the 
tropics, the stratosphere). The answer to 
this question is essential 
for understanding both year-to-year variations in regional climate and 
weather extremes, and projecting how these will change in a warming 
world. The successful candidate will use reanalysis data and numerical 
models to identify and evaluate candidate mechanisms.

For more details about the positions, instructions on how to submit an 
application, and contact information, please see:
