CMCC Position
Post-Doc or Jr Scientist on Ocean Wave Modelling
(Deadline: June 15th, 2024)


The CMCC Foundation is a scientific research center on climate change and its 
interactions with the environment, society, the world of business, and 
Our work aims to stimulate sustainable growth, protect the environment, and 
develop strategies for the adaptation and mitigation of climate change.


Our Institute for Earth System Predictions (IESP) is hiring a talented, motivated 
and proactive Post-Doc or Junior Scientist to work in the Global Coastal Ocean 
division in the framework of the EDITO-ModelLab and FOCCUS projects.
The position is open for an Ocean Wave Modeller to join our dynamic team and 
contribute to cutting-edge research in wave modelling at both global and coastal 

Workplace location: Lecce or Bologna


The position involves conducting research activities focused on global and coastal 
processes, understanding the connection between different spatial scales with a 
seamless continuum approach.
The study will mainly investigate extreme events, with a special focus on waves 
and storm surges, with the aim of contributing to the design of mitigation and 
adaptation strategies against climate change.
The work will include developing and implementing wave spectral models and 
coupling with circulation models, performing high-resolution modeling simulations 
using unstructured grids, calibrating models with observational data, and applying 
downscaling techniques both dynamic and based on Artificial Intelligence.
Furthermore, it will contribute to improving the complexity of our coupled 
numerical models, including new physics, and investigating interactions between 
waves, currents, atmosphere, and ice. The study will focus on short-term 
forecasting and long-term climate scenarios, employing both deterministic and 
ensemble approaches.


We are seeking candidates with a strong background in wave modelling and coastal 
nearshore processes. Proficiency in programming languages and experience with 
processing and interpreting simulation-based and observational datasets are 
essential for success in this role.

PhD or equivalent experience in Physical Oceanography, Coastal Engineering, 
Computational Fluid Dynamics or other scientific disciplines dealing with 
numerical modelling (e.g. Physics, Mathematics)
Experience in developments and implementations of ocean wave models
Knowledge of coastal processes and high-resolution modelling, preferably based on 
unstructured mesh
Good knowledge and skills in programming language, preferably Python and 
Knowledge of UNIX/Linux operating systems and script languages (i.e. *nix shell)
Knowledge of parallel programming on HPC architectures
Fluency in English
Experience in ensemble forecasting is not mandatory but will be a plus
Knowledge of general ocean circulation models is a plus and will be positively 

The appointment period will be initially of 12 months starting from June 2024, 
renewable for 24 months additional months pending a positive evaluation. Tenure 
can be granted from 2 to 4 years after being appointed as a junior researcher.
The gross annual salary range is from 32 to 38K Euros for the PostDoc and 35 to 
45K for the Junior Scientist, depending on qualification and working experience.
Welfare package
Flexible working time
Support during the immigration process, if needed
