The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a non-profit research and educational institution with a strong scientific and technological orientation, emphasizing international collaborations and cross-disciplinary research and post graduate education. CyI, through its established research centers, addresses challenging issues that are important at both the regional and international levels. Many of its research activities are being carried out in partnership with leading institutions in the respective thematic areas.
The selected candidate will further develop the Institute’s research on regional climate change modelling, with a focus on local scales and temperature extremes in the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East/North Africa (MENA). The research will be carried out within the Atmosphere and Climate Division of Energy, Environment and Water Research Center (EEWRC) 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. This research is within the CELSIUS (“Projecting temperature climate extremes at regional to urban scale”) project, supported by the EXCELLENCE/1216 Call of the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation (RPF) RESTART 2016-2020 programme.
The appointment will be on a full time basis, initially for a fixed-term period, with the potential of renewal depending on performance and availability of funds.
