|Job Description|| |
The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a non-profit science and technology institution based in Cyprus and led by an acclaimed Board of Trustees (www.cyi.ac.cy). Research in the Cyprus Institute is conducted in its three research centers: the Energy Environment Water Research Center (EEWRC), the Science and Technology in Archaeology Research Center (STARC), and the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CASTORC).
The EEWRC addressed issues of regional interest and of global significance in the fields of energy, environmental and water research, with a focus on their specific regional, East-Mediterranean manifestations. Its research agenda addresses the great challenges related to: the mitigation and adaptation strategies necessitated by climate change, a reduced dependence on hydrocarbon energy sources and achieving a low carbon economy through the employment of renewables (solar), synergies between Renewable and Hydrocarbon energy sources and enabling a sustainable management of water and other natural resources in arid and semi-arid environments.
Description of the Position
The candidate will further develop the Institute’s research on regional climate change modelling, with focus on the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East/North Africa. The research will be carried out within the Atmosphere and Climate Division of EEWRC/CyI and will consist of dynamical downscaling of global climate model projections using limited area atmospheric and earth system models at high horizontal resolution, building on CyI’s previous work and contributing to the efforts of the CORDEX international program.
