2 Post Docs within Earth System Modelling and Decadal Climate Prediction

The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) opens two 2-year full time positions for research scientists at post doc level to work with Earth System Modelling and decadal climate predictions under the Danish National Centre for Climate Research (NCKF).

The center has recently been established with the purpose to conduct critical climate research for the Kingdom of Denmark and bring together climate knowledge, to form the basis for green transition and climate adaptation. The activities focus on observed and future climate change of the physical climate system, with focus on the Arctic, Greenland and on extreme weather and sea level around Denmark.

Your work in NCKF will focus on the Earth System Model EC-Earth. DMI is part of (and currently chairing) the international EC-Earth consortium, which has more than 30 member institutes from 12 countries across Europe. The work with the model is the basis for DMI’s climate research in many contexts, e.g. national and international research projects (H2020 Blue-Action and EUCP are current examples). DMI has contributed to CMIP6 and are at the forefront in coupling of ice sheet components into the Earth System Models. Our modelling activities focus both on the climate of the next century and research on improved decadal climate predictions.

You will be part of the climate research group at DMI, working closely with a team of colleagues focusing on EC-Earth model development and application, with close links to international EC-Earth colleagues.

Main working tasks Position 1: Earth System Model developer

You will contribute to the scientific and technical development and effective application of the EC-Earth global climate model in DMI’s HPC environment. The technical aspects of the work include development of a new global high-resolution configuration, optimization and handling of input and output. You will collaborate with colleagues at DMI and in the international EC-Earth consortium. Additionally, you will take part in implementation, post processing and analysis of dedicated coordinated experiments.

Position 2: North Atlantic and Arctic climate predictions

Your work will focus on design and execution of EC-Earth decadal prediction experiments aimed at improved understanding of North Atlantic and Arctic climate variability. Work will be carried out together with colleagues at DMI and international research collaborators. Relevant research topics include ocean-atmosphere interaction, North Atlantic circulation, atmospheric teleconnections between the Arctic and lower latitudes, and oceanic drivers of Arctic change.

For both positions, you are expected to contribute to scientific papers and to developing grant applications.

Expected qualifications

  • Climate scientist at PhD level with a background in meteorology, oceanography or related fields (e.g. physics or engineering)
  • Experience with climate modelling, preferably GCM or Earth System Modelling
  • Advanced programming skills (e.g. Fortran, Linux/Unix and Python scripting), and experience with execution of large codes on HPC systems
  • Good communication skills in oral and written English
The Research Department at the DMI employs a staff of approx. 70 scientists, including PhD’s and Post Docs, of which about 20 work directly with climate, in close collaboration with meteorologists, oceanographers and remote sensing experts. We have a strong international profile, which is also reflected in the many nationalities employed and in a combined English and Danish working language.

Employment Employment and salary will be according to the Danish Law and Agreements, at the scientist level, depending on previous experience. It will be possible to apply for an addition to the basic salary. Researchers who are recruited from abroad, and who are able to meet certain conditions, have the opportunity to work in Denmark for a period of 60 months under a special 26 % tax rate without deduction, instead of working under the regular income taxation.

DMI offers a flexible working week of 37 hours including a paid lunch break, and six weeks of paid vacation annually.

Employment area: Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Facilities and associated institutions.

Work place: DMI, Lyngbyvej 100, 2100 Copenhagen Ø, Denmark

The DMI wants to contribute to equal opportunities for women and men, and encourage all qualified persons to apply regardless of age, gender or ethnic background.

For further details about the position, contact Head of Climate Research, Rasmus Anker Pedersen, on telephone: +45 39 15 75 95 or by e-mail: rap@dmi.dk

Application Please send your application, including a cover letter with motivation for the application, a curriculum vitae (incl. short publication list of max 2 pages), relevant exam papers and diplomas, possible other relevant appendices and contacts for relevant professional references, so we have it in our system by March 2, 2021.

To apply for the position, please use the below link "Apply for Position", and follow the instructions.

We expect to hold interviews March 10, 2021 and possible second round of interviews on March 17, 2021. A possible interview may be based on a concrete case, and the interviews may be held online.

Starting date is May 1st 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.

DMI is an institution under the Danish Ministry of Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Facilities and carries out forecast and warning services as well as continuous monitoring of weather, climate and related environmental conditions in the atmosphere, on land and at sea, in order to secure human life, equipment and property, and to create a basis for economic and environmental planning in the society. DMI is an exciting workplace with professional competent employees with a wide variety of educations.
