  • examine “Abrupt climate shifts and extremes over Eurasia in response to Arctic sea ice change”


  • PhD in climate science or related field
  • experience in modelling and data analyses
  • documentation of results in international reviewed journals.

 Desirable knowledge/skills

  • knowledge in AWI-ESM model development and applications, as well as statistical data analyses.
