Dear Sir or Madame,This is U-Jeong from IBS Center for Climate Physics located in Busan, Korea.We are looking for global scientists and would like to post a job through list server.Please spread these Job Advertisement for us.Thank you for your great support.Regards,U-Jeong


Postdoctoral Fellow Position – Climate/Human migration modeling

Employer: IBS Center for Climate Physics

Location: Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea

Education Level: PhD

Job type: Postdoctoral Fellow

Salary: 50 million KRW/year (~45,000 USD)

Term: Full Time, 2 year, with possibility for renewal

Applicants for this position should have a PhD in physics, climate
sciences, meteorology, oceanography or a related field. Postdoctoral Fellows
are expected to have strong computational skills, excitement to work on a new
research subject, a good publication record, a high level of independence,
curiosity and creativity, and an interest in working in an international and
interdisciplinary research environment. The successful candidate will work with
Prof. Axel Timmermann to develop and improve density-based numerical models for
human migration, hominin interbreeding and gene flow with the aim to simulate
and understand the effect of past climate change on the evolution and migration
of Homo sapiens. The project will focus on the time period from 200,000-11,000
years ago and will address questions of climate-induced migration inside and
outside of Africa. We will also revisit the question of interaction,
interbreeding and competition between Anatomically Modern Humans and
Neanderthals in a rapidly varying climate environment. 


IBS Center for Climate Physics (ICCP), (http://iccp.ibs.re.kr) directed by Dr. Axel Timmermann, is dedicated to advancing the
understanding of natural climate variability, man-made climate change and their
impacts on the hydrological cycle, regional processes, ice-sheets, and sea
level. The ICCP is generously funded through the Institute for Basic Science
(IBS) (http://ibs.re.kr).


   ICCP is located in Busan,
the second largest city in South Korea and the ninth largest port city in the
world. Surrounded by ocean and mountains, the city has a dramatic natural
background. From designer cafes, international movie and art festivals, award-winning
restaurants to temples at the end of hiking trails, Busan has something to
offer for everyone. 


 Please submit a cover letter, a short
statement of your research interests, curriculum vitae, the name of 2
references, and up to three publications to Ms. U-Jeong Seo (u_jeongs@pusan.ac.kr).
If you have any further questions regarding these positions, please
contact Axel Timmermann (timmermann@pusan.ac.kr).
The position remains open until filled.
