We would like to encourage applications from candidates worldwide wishing to pursue a PhD degree in the field of Climate Theory with an interest in the following research areas; Earth System Modelling, complex mathematics, climate simulation, ocean-atmosphere-land-sea ice processes and tipping point behaviour.

Niels Bohr Institute's (NBI) section for the Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth (PICE), Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering two PhD Fellowships, referred to as early-stage researchers (ESR) in Climate Theory, starting between 01.03.2021 and 30.09.2021. PICE studies the elements of the Earth and climate system – the atmosphere, oceans, ice sheets, sea ice, solid Earth, and the interactions between them.

The positions are posted as part of the exciting CriticalEarth project - “Multiscale Critical Transitions in the Earth System - funded through the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme under Grant number 956170.

You will join a network of 15 PhD Fellows (ESRs), trained to research new methods for assessing the mechanisms and associated risks of critical transitions in the climate. The focus will be on investigating how complex mathematics can be used to predict and avoid irreversible climate change. The position will offer you an excellent background, working within a strong, cross-disciplinary network among leading Universities and research institutions across Europe and with contacts to industry, governmental- and non-governmental institutions.
