A Postdoctoral Research position at the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) is open for applications. The position is for two years and is funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union through the project “Centre of Excellence for Exascale in Solid Earth” (ChEESE), that started in November 2018.

The PostDoc position is in the field of computational volcanology, where high performance computing (HPC) will be used for real-time simulations of volcanic plume dynamics and high-resolution volcanic cloud dispersal forecast, including hazard assessment.

The PostDoc position is with the IMO’s Geoscience Research Group in the Division of Processing and Research, where multiple international and domestic research and monitoring projects are carried out. The work will involve collaboration with other ChEESE partners, in particular visits and training at the Italian Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) and Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC). The position will also involve collaborations with other already on-going national and international projects.

Application deadline is on June the 5th, 2019. The two-year PostDoc position at IMO is expected to commence in late summer 2019 (est. 1 September).
