ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE = 31st July 2015!
ENEA Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, Rome, Italy
This workshop aims to contribute to the understanding of regional energy, momentum, water, and matter fluxes and their effects on the regional climate using observations and Regional Climate System Models (RCSMs) encompassing processes in the atmosphere, land, sea, and anthroposphere. In this workshop, we will focus on European seas and their catchment areas like the Mediterranean Sea, Black Sea, North Sea, Baltic Sea and Arctic Ocean – highly sensitive areas where global models fail to give reliable information about changing climate because key processes are not properly resolved.
In recent years, coupled atmosphere – sea ice – ocean models have been elaborated further by using a hierarchy of sub-models for the Earth system, combining regional climate models with sub-models for surface waves, land vegetation, hydrology, land and marine biogeochemistry, the marine carbon cycle as well as marine biology and food webs. Hence, there is a tendency to develop so-called regional Earth system models with the aim to investigate the impact of climate change on the entire terrestrial and marine environment.Studies on any of the session topics described below are invited to be presented at the workshop. Discussions on progress in the field and challenges will complement the oral and poster presentations.

The Rossby Centre are looking for a candidate with an academic education in meteorology, climatology or closely related subject. You should have considerable experience of working with climate data and climate scenarios. A PhD is mandatory and post-doctoral experience is preferred. Experience in mathematical statistics would be desirable.
Good programming skills in packages/languages such as Python, R, Octave/Matlab, IDL and CDO is preferable as is experience of working in a Linux environment. You should be accustomed to handling large volumes of data, most likely in NetCDF format. A good level of written and spoken English is essential. Knowledge of Swedish is not required but there will be opportunities to learn, should you wish.
The position is limited to 2 years and will be based in Norrköping.
