The Georges Lemaître Centre for Earth and Climate Research (www.uclouvain.be/teclim) / Earth and Life Institute of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) is seeking for a postdoctoral fellow. 

Under the general guidance of Prof. Thierry Fichefet, who is one of the Lead Authors of IPCC WG1 AR5 Chapter 12 (Long-term Climate Change: Projections, Commitments and Irreversibility), this postdoctoral fellow will contribute to :

  • the analysis (with publication in peer-reviewed journals) of CMIP5 (http://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/cmip5/) climate projections, with focus on high-latitude climate and sea ice;
  • the preparation of the second-order draft and final version of Chapter 12 of IPCC WG1 AR5.
Applicants should have:
  • a PhD degree in the field of global climate modeling;
  • a training and ability to manipulate software tools for statistical analyses and graphical representation of observational datasets and climate model outputs;
  • an excellent English level (both oral and written);
  • a strong disposition to communicate with a group of peers.
The position will end on September 30, 2013, with possibility of renewal afterwards. The grant (incl. full social security) will be commensurate with experience according to the UCL rates.
