APPLICATE (Advanced Prediction in Polar regions and beyond: modelling, observing system design and LInkages associated with ArctiC ClimATE change) is a 4-year project, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program, and coordinated by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Bremerhaven (16 partners), that aims at advancing our ability to model and predict the Arctic climate system along with its impacts on the weather and climate in lower latitudes (www.applicate.eu).
The successful candidate will contribute to improve the Louvain-la-Neuve sea ice model (LIM; www.elic.ucl.ac.be/repomodx/lim/), which is part of the Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO; www.nemo-ocean.eu) platform, by incorporating in this model subgrid-scale snow thickness and ice floe size distributions together with a comprehensive representation of lateral ice melting and form drag. He/she will also assess the impact of these changes on the ability of the EC-Earth general circulation model (www.ec-earth.org), which includes NEMO-LIM, to predict the Arctic weather and climate on short timescales (one month to one year).
• Completed MSc or
equivalent (5 years) in glaciology, physical oceanography,
climatology, physics, applied mathematics or related fields;
The PhD grant is for 42
months, starting as soon as possible, with a net monthly salary
of about 1850 EUR. This includes social insurances.
The call is open until
the position is filled.
