Postdoctoral researcher – ArcIce4MedCalRain

Application deadline:

What We Are Looking for
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to our Climate program. The researcher will be supervised by Dr Ivana Cvijanovic, Assistant Research Professor. The successful candidate will work on the ArcIce4MedCalRain project that aims to reduce the uncertainties in future rainfall projections.
 
About us
ISGlobal’s Climate and Health program (Campus Universitari Mar) investigates future climate change and its impacts on society. It combines two main research lines: Climate dynamics and prediction (including tropical climate variability, ENSO dynamics and predictability, atmospheric teleconnections and future extreme weather events) and Climate impacts on Human Health (including the impact of climate change on the spread of infectious diseases like malaria, dengue, leishmaniosis, chikungunya and Zika, as well as the connection between weather extremes and various health outcomes).
 
Project
The ArcIce4MedCalRain project focuses on increasing our knowledge of future rainfall changes over regions featuring a Mediterranean climate, such as the Mediterranean Basin and California. These highly populated and economically important regions suffer from some of the largest inter-model disagreements in future projections of rainfall changes, directly affecting their resilience to ongoing climate change. The project will address this problem systematically, from analyzing how an accurate and improved representation of atmospheric teleconnections in climate models can improve the uncertainties in future rainfall projections, to addressing multiple societal impacts that can benefit from such decreased uncertainty.
The ArcIce4MedCalRain project is supported by La Caixa Foundation (ID 100010434) and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 847648. The fellowship code is LCF/BQ/PI20/11760017.
