A 3-year researcher position in computational ocean modelling is available
at Uni Research Climate. The appointment will start as soon as possible
with negotiable starting date. Uni Research Climate is a department of Uni
Research AS and partner of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR)
in Bergen, Norway. The candidate will work under the Norwegian Research
Council funded project ORGANIC (Overturning circulation and its
implications for global carbon cycle in coupled models).

The researcher will join the biogeochemical modelling group in BCCR, which
is part of a dynamic team of Earth system modellers. He/She will
participate in the planned development activities for the next generation
Norwegian Earth system model (NorESM). His/Her modelling activities will
focus on advancing the ocean biogeochemical general circulation model
MICOM-HAMOCC (Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model – HAMburg Oceanic
Carbon Cycle) as part of NorESM.

One of the main goals of the project ORGANIC is to elucidate the role of
ocean biogeochemistry in regulating past and potentially future climate
variability at various spatial and temporal scales. The tasks include
developing a new computationally efficient method (e.g., combination of
transport matrix and matrix-free Newton-Krylov method) to accelerate the
MICOM-HAMOCC model spin-up to arrive at different climate equilibria under
various periods. Their impact of climate and ocean physics on interior
ocean biogeochemical tracer cycling will be quantified, also in view of
climate projections driven by future scenarios. In addition, the successful
candidate will be involved in evaluation and uncertainty analysis of future
climate simulations - e.g., those of the Coupled Model Intercomparison
Project phase 6 (CMIP6) - and writing of peer-reviewed scientific
