The Millennium Nucleus in “Paleoclimate of the Southern Hemisphere” invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in paleoclimate modeling (possibly renewable for another year). The main goal of our research group is to understand the evolution of the coupled atmosphere, ocean and biosphere over broadly the last 25,000 years over the Southern Hemisphere. More specifically our study areas include western Patagonia and the adjacent Ocean.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Climate Modelling or related field. Good programming skills, and experience in paleo climate modeling are highly desirable. Showing willingness and ability to conduct independent research while being a team player is also expected. You will join an active research group that addresses the study of paleoclimate combining empirical and modelling approaches, with opportunities of fieldwork in Patagonia. We are an interdisciplinary research team with expertise in the disciplines of atmospheric sciences, empirical and physical paleo-oceanography, paleo-ecology and glacial geology.
Salary is assigned according to CONICYT standards, equivalent to ca. 29 kUSD per year, which corresponds roughly to 2.5 times the Chilean per capita average income.
Interested applicants should send their CV and a brief research proposal (up to 2 pages) to Dr. Maisa Rojas (firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>) by September 30 2015. The selected candidate is expected to start early 2016. For more information don’t hesitate to contact me.
