Job opportunity: Permanent research position in oceanography with focus on climate change, SMHI, Norrköping or Gothenburg, Sweden

Apply by 1 Sept 2019

 

Would you like to participate in increasing the knowledge about the influence of climate change on the marine environment? The oceanographic unit at SMHIs research department is now strengthening the group working on ocean and climate related questions in order to meet the society’s need of knowledge. We offer a stimulating working environment with ample internal and external interactions and flexible working conditions.

 

The oceanographic unit at SMHIs research department conducts research and development on the marine environment, marine climate, and operational oceanography. We work with analyses and development of models and observations in the open sea and the coastal zone with main focus on the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the Arctic. Today 16 researchers are employed at the unit which is a part of the research department (about 100 employees). The research is mainly based on external funding, and the oceanography unit has succeeded in attracting funding at national and European levels.

You will work with research on the effects of climate change on the ocean and the marine ecosystems, with main focus on the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, and the Arctic. Depending on the applicants, we see different position possibilities. Either a younger researcher with specialization within oceanography and marine climate research, or an established researcher that can help to lead our group and research forward within this area.

 

The research and development work will include modeling and qualified analyses of climate projections from coupled physical-biogeochemical ocean models and coupled atmosphere-ocean models. This means that the work comprises tasks such as model development, model validation, process and climate effect studies, and analyses of model output and observation data. A more qualified applicant will also contribute to the strategic development of the unit, supervise younger researchers, apply for funding, and maintain and develop the collaboration networks inside and outside SMHI.

The work will mainly be performed within various national and international research projects, which means participation in all project phases from proposal to reporting.

 

A permanent position is offered, with placement in Norrköping or Gothenburg.
