The postdoctoral research fellow will be responsible for developing the isotope-enabled regional climate model capabilities at the Geophysical Institute and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. Specific focus will be on comparing observations and model simulations of the water stable isotopic composition in the hydrological cycle over the North Atlantic, Greenland, Antarctica, and the Tibetan Plateau. The research fellow will be utilizing a growing set of water vapor and precipitation isotope observations from year-round tower measurements, isotope-flux measurements, and vertical profiles obtained from drones and balloons. The research fellow will as part of the work utilize field observations of snow-air exchange processes obtained from campaigns in Greenland and Antarctica. The target of the research will be directed at understanding past and present-day drivers of the atmospheric hydrological cycle and the research fellow will therefore work closely with the paleoclimate community at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research and become a key resource for the Bjerknes community. Using a suit of proxy models, regional climate modelling, and global Earth System Models the research fellow will deploy paleo-data assimilation as an integrative tool of the research portfolio of the fellow. The research fellow will work in a highly international group and bridge both the observational and modelling community and will therefore be expected to have good collaborative skills.
