2yr postdoc in land surface modeling, NORCE

Hanna Lee-3
Job description:
A 2-year postdoctoral researcher position in land surface modeling is
available at NORCE Norwegian Research Centre AS, Climate, in Bergen,
Norway. There is a possibility to become a permanent researcher after
the 2-yr postdoc period. The main focus of the work will be to improve
our understandings on climate change interaction between land surface,
particularly high latitude ecosystems, using the coupled framework of

include but not limited to 1)  studying the feedback cycles of
climate-land-atmosphere using the NorESM or the CMIP6 simulations and
publish, 2) working together with the NorESM community to evaluate
models with observational data, and 3) maintain and analyze the CLM/CTSM
