Postdoctoral fellow position: Future projections of mammal extinction risks

  • Employer: IBS Center for Climate Physics
  • Location: Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea
  • Education Level: PhD
  • Job type: Postdoctoral Fellow 
  • Salary: 55 million KRW/year 
  • Term: Full Time, 2 year, with possibility for renewal

 Applicants for this position should have a PhD in physics, atmospheric research, oceanography, or a related field. Candidates 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 determine how greenhouse warming will influence terrestrial mammal habitats and biodiversity. By forcing ICCP’s mammal migration model (M3) with future climate projections, the project will help quantify extinction risks of endangered mammal species. The outcomes from this research will provide crucial information for international wildlife conservation efforts.

The 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). 

Please submit a cover letter (using the reference PD-02-2022), a short statement of your research interests, curriculum vitae, the name of 2 references, and up to three publications to Ms. Jenny Choi (hahadaye@pusan.ac.kr). The review of the applications will start on June 10th, 2022 and the position remains open, until filled.
