Up to four associate professor positions available at the Centre for Climate Dynamics
The University of Bergen (UiB) wishes to appoint up to four associate professors at the newly established Centre for Climate Dynamics. Application dead-line is September 1.
The University of Bergen (UiB) wishes to appoint up to four associate professors at the newly established Centre for Climate Dynamics. The official opening of the centre will take place later this year.
The Centre for Climate Dynamics will be a strong international competence centre for the understanding of climate change, modelling of climate changes, and reliable information about possible future situations regionally and globally. Partners in the centre are the University of Bergen, Uni Research AS, Institute of Marine Research, and the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre. The Norwegian ministry of Education and Research has provided funding for the centre for 12 years, subject to the result of a mid-term evaluation. The new centre is closely associated with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (www.bjerknes.uib.no).
The thematic research areas of the Centre for Climate Dynamics include model experiments that contribute to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessments, the development of global climate predictions and regional climate scenarios, the analysis of natural and anthropogenic climate variability, and the carbon cycle and its impacts on the ocean.
The successful candidates for the positions will be responsible for leading their own thematic research areas within the Centre for Climate Dynamics, and together with the centre leader and administrative manager will constitute the leader group of the centre. The newly appointed candidates will initially use their expertise and working time towards already defined projects, but will also be central in the further strategic and scientific development of the centre. This will include among other things strategic planning, application writing, project management, and reporting.
