*Postdoc Position in Coupled Climate-Carbon Cycle Modelling*
The Climate Research Lab in the Department of Geography at Simon Fraser
University (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), led by Dr. Kirsten
Zickfeld, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in
coupled-climate carbon cycle modelling.
The successful applicant will join a dynamic group with expertise in
Earth system modelling, climate dynamics and climate-carbon cycle
interactions on decadal to centennial timescales. The focus of the
research will be on the future climate and carbon cycle response to
“overshoot” scenarios, i.e. scenarios that temporarily exceed a
temperature limit. Understanding the response to such scenarios is of
fundamental interest, as most scenarios consistent with meeting the
temperature limits set by the Paris Agreement (1.5°C and 2°C warming
above pre-industrial) involve temperature overshoot. The research
questions will be addressed by performing multi-century simulations with
an Earth System Model of intermediate complexity and by drawing on
climate model archives such as the Climate Modelling Intercomparison
Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) archive.
Funding is available for one year, with possibility of renewal for one
additional year. The preferred start date is 1^st November 2018.
For information on required qualifications and application procedure
Evaluation of applications will start on 12 August 2018 and will
continue until the position is filled.
