Position: Doctoral Candidate (all genders)
Institution: Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie
Location: Hamburg, Germany
Duties: The recent historical period is characterised by the eastern tropical Pacific, which the majority of coupled climate models fail to replicate. It is critical to have a better understanding of the origin of this discrepancy due to its important implications on the credibility of regional climate projections. It has been proposed that the observed Southern Ocean SST cooling might have contributed to the Southeast Pacific cooling. Previous studies show that radiative perturbations in the Southern Ocean have the capacity to shift the eastern tropical Pacific ITCZ and modulate the tropical Pacific SST pattern. Multi-model inter-comparison study indicates that this Southern Ocean-driven teleconnection is mediated by the subtropical cloud feedback
Requirements: Candidates should be holding a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent; with written thesis) and have a strong academic background in meteorology, physics, geosciences or related areas; A strong interest in atmospheric convection and atmospheric dynamics; A good background in mathematics and physics; High skills in writing scientific publications; Solid skills in UNIX/Linux, Python, shell scripting, processing, and visualization of simulation data; Ability to work both in a team and autonomously; Very good spoken and written English language for communication within the group and project partners and for the presentation of scientific results in international conferences are required
