Job description

Irreversible Climate Change Research Center (IRCC) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow or non-tenured research professor to conduct innovative research in irreversible climate change.

As a 7-year project supported by National Research Foundation of Korea, IRCC at Yonsei University (Seoul, Korea) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow or non-tenured research professor to conduct research to understand the irreversible climate change due to the future global warming or paleo climate forcing, especially focusing on abrupt climate change, tipping point problem and early warning. The candidate will work with a team of scientists at IRCC to improve our understanding on irreversibility of climate system, nonlinear behavior of tipping element in a warmer climate, and dynamics of tipping point. The candidate will develop a prototype dynamical system model to understand the fundamental behavior of nonlinear climate system and its element, and analyze observations and climate model outputs.


How to apply

To apply to the position, please email a single file containing a letter of interest and CV to Prof. Soon-Il An (sian@yonsei.ac.kr; Chief of SRC center), and later may ask for contact information for three references.
