We have an opening for a 2.5 year researcher position in paleo ocean
biogeochemical cycle hosted at the University of Bergen, Norway. I would be
grateful if you can distribute this to the CCSM mailing list.

More information of the position is available through this link:

Many thanks in advance,

There is a vacancy for a  temporary research position at the Geophysical
Institute (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
