The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary
center for climate and Earth system research located in Hamburg,
Germany. MPI-M contributes to the BMBF project "From the Last
Interglacial to the Anthropocene: Modeling a Complete Glacial Cycle"
(PalMod, www.palmod.de), which aims at simulating the climate from the
peak of the last interglacial up to the present using comprehensive
Earth System Models.
For phase II of this research project we have - under the condition of
the grant by the funding party - an open position in working group 1
(The physical system) for a
*Postdoctoral Scientist (W063)*
The successful candidate will be part of a local team performing and
analysing long-term transient simulations covering the last glacial and
the transition into the Holocene with an interactively coupled
atmosphere-ocean-ice sheet model. Additionally, the candidate will
contribute to the continued development of this model. The model system
consists of the MPI-Earth system model, the ice sheet model PISM, and
the solid-earth model VILMA.
