PhD (climate reconstruction), University of Bern

The group of Climatology of the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, is offering a PhD position in the area of climate reconstruction using data assimilation. The successful candidate will further develop Kalman filter based numerical techniques for reconstructing climate over the past 400 years by combining early instrumental data, documentary data and tree-ring proxies with an ensemble of climate model simulations.

The candidate should have a strong basis in climate physics (MSc in Environmental Sciences, Geography, Physics, or similar), should be familiar with linear algebra problems, have experience in handling large, gridded geophysical data sets (specifically climate model output or reanalyses) and skills in data processing (Fortran, etc.) and statistics (R or similar). Good English language skills are a prerequisite.

The successful candidate will participate in the PhD programme of the Graduate School Climate Sciences, University of Bern, Switzerland (<http://www.oeschger.unibe.ch>).

The position is for 36 months, the starting date is 1 Jan 2016. Please send your application in the form of one pdf file (including application letter, transcript, CV, publication list, names and addresses of three referees). Review of applications will start on 1 November and continued until the position is filled.
