The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and the Stockholm Resilience Centre are coordinating recruitment of four post-doctoral researchers to join an international collaborative project on new-generation Earth system modelling to investigate Earth's paleo-climatic shifts and Earth resilience in the Anthropocene, with the endeavour of scientifically defining a safe operating space for humanity on Earth.

Two of the positions will be based in Potsdam, Germany, in Research Domain 1 “Earth System Analysis”:

Atmosphere dynamics
The task involves further validation and improvement of the innovative Aeolus atmosphere model developed at PIK, and advancing the integrated Earth System modelling of paleoclimate and the Anthropocene.

Ocean circulation dynamics
The task involves modelling the global ocean circulation with focus on nonlinear thresholds, ice-ocean interaction and transient paleoclimate simulations.

The deadline for receiving applications is 15 September 2017.
