Job Announcement Text: 

The Physikalisch-Meteorologisches Observatorium Davos, World Radiation Centre (PMOD/WRC, http://www.pmodwrc.ch) and Institute for Astronomy ETH Zurich (http://www.astro.ethz.ch) opened a PhD research position in modeling the variability of the solar spectrum over the 11-year activity and longer time scales. The project is part of the FUPSOL-II (Future and Past Solar Influence on theTerrestrial Climate II) project funded by the Swiss National Foundation and builds on the results of the highly successful FUPSOL-I project. It will be implemented in a tight collaboration with ETH Zurich, University of Bern, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology and Oescher Center for Climate Research. The frequent meetings with our project partners will allow the successful candidate to develop the insight into the modeling of the natural climate variability. PMOD/WRC will support the participation at international conferences and other travels related to the project. The appointment starts in January 2014 (three years). Applicants should send a CV, transcripts of study records with grades, and a brief statement of research experience and research interests. They should also include the email addresses of two referees which can be asked to provide the reference letters (actual letters are not required at this stage). Applications and questions about the position should be directed to Dr. Alexander Shapiro (alexander.shapiro@pmodwrc.ch). Selections of candidates will continue until the position is filled.
