Postdoc (m/f/d) in climate uncertainty and CDR interlinkage assessment using Earth system modelling and statistical analyses
Deadline: 1st July 2022
The research unit Marine Biogeochemistry of the research division Biogeochemical Modelling (GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel) is offering a postdoc position starting on September 1st, 2022. The research will involve working as part of an interdisciplinary team where the scientist is expected to provide expertise on modelling CDR approaches. Initial work will involve usage of the newest version of an Earth system model of intermediate complexity (UVic ESCM) to perform a biogeochemical and physical parameter perturbation experiment for temperature stabilisation scenarios to assess the uncertainty space in these underexplored scenarios. Furthermore, the Postdoc will assess the impact of various CDR measures by explicitly including them in these simulations. Finally, the interlinkages (i.e., additionality and trade-offs) of CDR measures will be assessed using statistical analysis tools.
