The IBS Center for Climate Physics (ICCP) was established in January, 2017 as the only Earth Science center within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS). ICCP expands the frontiers of earth system science by conducting cutting edge research into climate dynamics with the goal of improving our physical understanding of natural climate variability and externally forced climate change. Under the direction of Prof. Axel Timmermann, ICCP scientists study coupled climate processes across the hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, biosphere, and anthroposphere.

Postdoctoral Fellow Positions available on:
- Paleo climate-genomics in Africa
- East Asian paleo summer monsoon
- Climate/ Human migration modeling
- The forced response of the ENSO-Indian Monsoon teleconnection

Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute

Group manager for researchers in Hydrology:


Post-Doc in Hydrological Research:


Public information:
The unit for Hydrological Research works in Sweden, Europe and worldwide with developing Water and Climate services based on forecast and scenario tools. We calculate variability in water resources, climate change impacts, and water quality in catchments. The work done here aims to improve decision support for physical planning and environmental control, as well as forecasting for flood warning services and the hydropower industry. We work directly with both external end-users and SMHI’s more operational divisions. The unit has some 30 employees from 13 countries.

Group Manager for Hydrological Research and Development:
Are you good at managing and leading groups of scientists? As an efficient team we can reach far, and we are looking for a new group manager for researchers at Hydrological Research and Development at SMHI!
