Do you want to take part in shaping the future?Researcher in Supermodel Climate Prediction
There is a vacancy for a position at the Geophysical Institute, as researcher in climate prediction using the newly developed supermodelling approach.
The position is for a period of 1 year and is associated with the ERC-funded Proof of Concept project: “Towards Operational Supermodel Climate Prediction” (GA n. 101101037).About the project/work tasks:
Supermodelling is a novel solution to substantially improve climate prediction by reducing model error. A supermodel is an interconnected ensemble of models that combines the strengths of the individual models using machine learning. The main task will be to perform seasonal predictions with a newly developed supermodel consisting of the Norwegian, Community and Max-Planck Institute Earth System Models (NorESM, CESM, MPIESM). This will involve training of the supermodel, generating initial conditions, and assessing prediction skill in relation to standard approaches.Qualifications and personal qualities:
Personal and relational qualities will be emphasized. Research experience, ambitions and potential will also count when evaluating the candidates.We can offer:
