More specifically, the Interns will utilise available climate data from observations and model output in order to statistically analyse and visualise temperature evolution and extremes at a global and regional scale, with a focus in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) and the Eastern Mediterranean, including Cyprus.

The Internships will be on a full-time basis for a fixed term of 6 months

Responsibilities

The Interns will contribute to the ACD’s regional climate change research by:

  • Collecting observational data of temperature and other climate variables from ground station measurements and other datasets
  • Extracting climate gridded data from global and regional climate model output
  • Statistically analysing and graphically depicting climatic temporal and spatial variations in the MENA region

Required Qualifications

  • Bachelor degree in Physical Sciences
  • Specialization in Atmospheric Sciences
  • Experience in Statistical data analysis
  • Experience in Visualisation of geophysical data
  • Strong analytical and organizational skills
  • Ability to work independently
  • Excellent knowledge of the English language both verbal and writing
