Job description

The scholarship aims to generate scenarios of climate change through high-resolution climate modeling, addressing issues related to the impacts of land-use changes and global greenhouse gas emission scenarios on socioeconomic sectors in Southeast Brazil.

The work involves:
  • The construction of land-use maps.
  • Running the Eta Regional Climate Model for multi-decadal ranges with different land-use maps.
  • Analyzing model output in a multidisciplinary approach.

-Ph.D. obtained within the last seven years in Geosciences, Environmental Engineering, Meteorology, Earth System Science, Hydrology, or Water Resources,
-Experience in climate modeling using the Eta model. A minimum of four years of research involving the development and long-term integrations (multi-decades) using high-resolution climate models with a multidisciplinary approach;
-Excellent teamwork skills in climate modeling, demonstrated through publications; Interest in multidisciplinary projects.
