Researcher in modelling CDR applications in the Southern Ocean (R1) per el Barcelona Supercomputing Center


This position is hosted by the Climate Variability and Change (CVC) Group within BSC's Earth Science Department. The CVC Group undertakes fundamental research to (1) understand climate variability and change, including for climate extremes, (2) investigate global biogeochemical dynamics, and the effectiveness and impacts of carbon removal technologies to mitigate climate change, (3) developing new Earth System modeling capabilities, including at ground-breaking resolutions and (4) improving our ability to forecast climate variations and biogeochemical dynamics from one month to multiple decades into the future, both at global and regional scales.

The position offered is funded by the national project CDRESM. The CDRESM project responds to the urgent necessity of reliable science-based recommendations to inform climate policies for the coming decades. In this project we will implement representations of both land- and ocean-based Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) techniques in a state-of-the-art Earth System Model. These new implementations will be thoroughly tested with the objective to assess their effectiveness and their potential environmental side effects. To date, research on CDR has focused on terrestrial-based methods. It revealed that achieving the PA2015 goals with land-based CDR alone, will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, due to their side effects, trade-offs with sustainability goals, competition for land use, limited individual potentials, and/or issues of carbon storage permanence. Much less is known about ocean-based CDR techniques, although some of them appear promising, especially with respect to the potential scale of application. In this project we will consider four land-based and three ocean-based CDR techniques that are showing promising results based on outcomes of ongoing projects and previous research. In CDRESM we hypothesize that these CDR techniques have the potential to be scaled up and play a role in the pathway towards climate neutrality.

The successful applicant will work closely with scientists within the Climate Variability and Change group and the Computational Earth Science group of the Earth Sciences Department. This position will offer the opportunity to work in a multi-disciplinary environment and to collaborate with European researchers working on similar topics within the framework of several European projects.

Key Duties

  • The development of new representations of ocean carbon dioxide removal (CDR) techniques in the state-of-the-art Earth System model EC-Earth, which is partly developed at the BSC
  •  The design and analysis of new climate projections and idealized experiments that include explicit representations of CDR to quantify the overall effectiveness and side effects of these implementations, with a special focus on the Southern Ocean.
  •  Leading research papers that will document the results obtained.
