research initiatives to tacke the key challenges in climate science and

DKC is involved in national and international collaborative projects,
where modelling and analysis of the results are central elements.
Activities involve Global Climate Modelling (GCM) and Regional Climate
Modelling (RCM) as well as Ice Sheet Modelling for the Greenland Ice
Sheet. We seek scientists to join our energetic research team. You will
