website: Twelve Polar Climate Research Positions page

A total of twelve positions, all in the field of Polar Climate research, are available in a total of five universities throughout Belgium. The positions range from PhD, to postdoctoral research positions, to computer scientists. All of the roles will be based within the framework of the PARAMOUR project, which is funded by the EOS programme. All positions are open until filled, although some roles will begin assessing applications earlier than others (see descriptions below for details):
