*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.

Evaluation of applications will start on 12 August 2018 and will 
continue until the position is filled.
