WCRP is delighted to open a call for proposals to host a dedicated project office in support to one of the new WCRP core projects: the Earth System Modelling and Observations (ESMO) Core Project.

The ESMO Core Project was recently formed to coordinate all modelling, data and observations activities across WCRP and our key partners. ESMO will bring together existing elements of the WCRP structure such as the modelling Working Groups, WGCM (including CMIP activities), WGNE and WGSIP, the modelling and data activities of the other Core Projects (CLIVAR, GEWEX, SPARCCliC and RIfS), strategic connections to GCOS and Earth System reanalysis including recent activities (TIRA), Obs4MIPs, and joint activities with our WMO Research Board such as the S2S project.

Benefits to the Host Institution

The Host Institution will significantly benefit from hosting the ESMO IPO by having a close interaction with this critical domain of research in support of climate information for society. In addition, the host institution will have the benefit of:

  • enhancing their international profile through clear identification with the WCRP international community,
  • association and participation with a range of international meetings, workshops, and regional activities,
  • collaboration with other networks including those of early career scientists.

Further, development of an active scientific partnership between ESMO and scientists at the Host Institution is encouraged, with the aim of increased international exposure and additional scientific publications.

The ESMO IPO’s role will be to support this work on all related levels in close cooperation with the ESMO co-chairs and Scientific Steering Group, the WCRP leadership and the WCRP Secretariat in Geneva.

The deadline for proposals is 31 March 2022.
All communication, material and enquiries regarding this calls shall be directed in English to Nico Caltabiano (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) in the WCRP Secretariat.
