Pre-doctoral or post-doctoral position on atmospheric dispersion modelling

Atmospheric Composition Research seeks an enthusiastic, highly qualified pre- or post-doctoral researcher to work on modelling of the dispersion and transformation of air pollution, and on providing environmental data for the health assessments. The successful applicant will be developing and using various atmospheric dispersion models, and processing their output data.

The successful applicant will contribute to improving our understanding of the role of air pollution on the health of the populations both locally and globally. He or she will be working closely with other members of the Atmospheric Composition Research unit, especially in the Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling team. The group is studying, for example, the emissions, dispersion and transformation of air pollutants on scales from street canyons and city scales to global, the evaluation of such models against experimental data, the applications of such models, and the relations of air pollution and climate change.

The currently open position will be part of the research project "Global health risks related to atmospheric composition and weather (GLORIA)”, which has been and will be in progress from 2017 to 2021. This is a research consortium funded by the Academy of Finland. The principal investigators are Prof. Jaakko Kukkonen (FMI) and Prof. Jouni Jaakkola (University of Oulu).

Post-doctoral position in “Weather and climate change impact research"

The Weather and Climate Change Impact Research unit at the Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki is opening a post-doc position in the field of climate change impacts on the water cycle and extremes. Our unit works towards improving climate change adaptation and climatic risk assessments. The focus is on meteorological extremes and their impacts on society, as well as occurrence, variability, predictability and change. Our unit also promotes the uptake and use of the weekly to monthly forecasts for the public by tailoring e.g., ECMWF extended and long-range datasets.

The applicant will be working with global and regional climate model data, data evaluation, statistical and/or dynamical post-processing and downstream applications. The work of the post-doc is highly international and is strongly linked to the unit’s ongoing projects, and especially those funded by EU Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), EU Horizon 2020 and EU ERA4CS. The work is thus partly technical and climate change service development related and partly research related. The research tasks focus on the investigations on the predictability of the water cycle and related extremes.

We look for a highly motivated candidate interested in climate model data evaluation and impact research. We expect the candidate to demonstrate work efficiency, ambition and research skills in meteorological and climatic research and impact modelling, and to possess merits in international collaboration and working in projects.

Post-doctoral position on statistical emulation of a cloud-scale model

Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) is both an international research institute and a 24/7 operational weather service located in Helsinki, Finland. It currently employs over 300 full time researchers working on weather and climate, atmospheric composition, high latitude and polar oceans and cryosphere.

The Climate System Modelling Group seeks a highly motivated individual for a post-doctoral position in the project “Emulation of subgrid-scale aerosol-cloud interactions in climate models: towards a realistic representation of aerosol indirect effect (ECLAIR)” funded by the European Research Council. The overall aim of ECLAIR is to build fast statistical surrogates (emulators) of a cloud-resolving model and implement them into climate simulations.

The currently open position will focus on 1) design and validation of the emulators, and 2) probabilistic sensitivity analysis of cloud-scale aerosol indirect effect. The position is for the time period from January 2019 until the end of August 2020 (start date can be negotiated), and will require the researcher to participate in international collaboration, including research visits abroad.

Post-doctoral positions on Earth System Modelling

Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) is both an international research institute and a 24/7 operational weather service located in Helsinki, Finland. It currently employs over 300 full time researchers working on weather and climate, atmospheric composition, high latitude and polar oceans, and cryosphere.

The Climate System Modelling Group seeks two enthusiastic, highly qualified post-doctoral researchers to work on modelling of earth system dynamics. The successful applicants will be both developing and using global Earth System Models to study Earth System dynamics and feedbacks.

The successful applicants will contribute to improving our understanding of the role of aerosols in the climate system and how to meet the goals of the Paris agreement. They will be working closely with other members of the Climate System Modelling group. The group is studying for example aerosol-cloud interactions, reforestation and mitigation scenarios, and negative emissions.

The currently open positions will focus on either 1) Earth System feedbacks and aerosols or 2) carbon cycle, negative emissions and mitigation scenarios. The positions are for the time period from January 2019 until the end of August 2020 (start date can be negotiated), and will require the researchers to participate in international collaboration, including research visits abroad.
