PhD position on ‘Decadal climate variability and predictability’ is offered at the newly founded Climate Centre at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark, in collaboration with the National Centre for Climate Research, hosted by the Danish Meteorological Institute.
Aim of the project is to use high-resolution predictive models to resolve decadal climate variability as well as mesoscale processes in both the ocean and the atmosphere, with a focus on the Arctic. A major focus will be on water mass dynamics and feedbacks on the ocean’s carbon pump with the long-term goal to assess the impact of decadal variations on the ocean carbon sink. An important part of the work is to explore biases and shortcomings of the models in representing key patterns of ocean and climate variability, which will be approached by using observational datasets. The ideal candidate has experience with climate or biogeochemical modelling, and a background in atmospheric or ocean science.
