Scientific researcher (m/f/x) modeling Earth system feedbacks
Deadline for application: Feb 12, 2023
The chair for Physical Geography and Land Use Systems (Prof. Julia Pongratz) at LMU’s Department of Geography (University of Munich, Germany) is looking for a scientific researcher.
The scientific researcher will be part of the Horizon Europe project “RESCUE”, which comprises a large model intercomparison project to quantify the Earth system response to pathways achieving climate neutrality by Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) deployment. A special focus lies on Earth system feedbacks and aspects of reversibility and environmental risks under scenarios of temperature overshoot. In RESCUE, the scientific researcher at LMU will
- contribute to the design of CDR scenarios as a collaboration of Earth system and socioeconomic modelers,
- set up, run and analyze model simulations of the ICON/MPI Earth System Model,
- further develop methods of “detection and attribution” in order to improve recommendations on the setup of observational systems for early detection of CDR signals and side-effects,
- take a leading role in the development of scientific publications.
