Postdoctoral position in the field of ice-sheet and paleoclimate modeling at MARUM (Univ. Bremen, Germany)
For the second funding phase (2019-2022) of the German climate modelling
initiative PalMod ("From the Last Interglacial to the Anthropocene:
Modeling a Complete Glacial Cycle") MARUM at the University of Bremen -
under the condition of the grant by the funding party - invites
applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of ice-sheet and
The successful candidate will study the physical processes that led to
the inception of the last ice age. Transient climate/ice-sheet
simulations will be performed in order to examine the full range of
feedback processes that are crucial for the large-scale build-up of ice
sheets. Additionally, the candidate will contribute to the continued
development of the climate/ice-sheet model and closely collaborate with
our co-operation partner Prof. Irina Rogozhina from the Geography
Department at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology,
