Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC)
Context and Mission
The position is hosted in the Climate Prediction Group (CPG) within BSC’s Earth Science Department. The Climate Prediction Group aims at developing climate prediction capability for time scales ranging from a few weeks to a multiple decades into the future, and from regional to global scales. More recently, the CPG has been developing an expertise on near-term prediction and projection of the global carbon cycle with the EC-Earth-CC Earth System Model.
The offered position is funded by the European H2020 projects LANDMARC and 4C. LANDMARC explores the potentials for land-based climate change mitigation, whereas the 4C project aims to establish near-term prediction systems of climate and atmospheric CO2 growth rate to assist the implementation of the Paris agreement.
The successful applicant will contribute within the LANDMARC project to the development of a modelling system which integrates a global land-use model into an Earth System Model in order to study the effects of LMT (Land-based mitigation technology) scenarios on the global carbon cycle and atmospheric processes. The applicant will also participate in the 4C project to study the contribution of vegetation and land-use change to atmospheric CO2 variability and predictability. The candidate will as well have the opportunity to contribute to the scientific planning and development of the next generation of the EC-Earth ESM, version 4.
