Apply now for RA5 grants for 2019 (deadline 25 February 2019)

We now invite proposals for the spring/summer call for RA5 funding. Supported activities are travel costs and fees for conferences and workshops, invited speakers and smaller research projects including fieldwork activities. Projects can be supported with up to 50k SEK. However, the highest priority will be given to support smaller grants.

If you want to apply, please request the application form from Fredrik Schenk. Please send the completed application form (max. 1.5 pages) to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Plans for a one-day overnight RA5 retreat

We currently discuss different options for our annual RA5 retreat. We want to increase the available time to have informal discussions combined with presentations by RA5 members and 1–2 external invited speakers. Please inform us if you want to suggest external invited speakers for RA5 topics or know a nice meeting place within 50–100 km around Stockholm. We plan to have a meeting starting at noon which ends at noon the next day. We will come back to you with more details about time and place during the next weeks.

 

A limited number of places available for Ph.D. or master students

Deadline for applications: 15 February
Description:
A master level course “Climate model simulations (7.5 hp)” will be given at the Department of Physical Geography from 6 May to 7 June 2019. The course will teach the knowledge of the climate models, model experiment design, as well as tools and skills on model output analysis. The students will analyse the model data in different climate scenarios from the past to future, focus on understanding mechanisms behind the climate change and climate variability. The learning activities include lectures, research seminars, group exercise and results presentations. Several invited scientists will give lectures on topics such as ENSO and NAO variability, glacial-interglacial transition and abrupt change, future climate change etc. The course has been previously given as summer course in 2017 and 2018, and 12 Ph.D. students from Bolin Centre have participated the course. There are a few places available this year for Ph.D. students. If you are interested, please feel free to contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
