CAFE Welcomes 12 Early Stage Researchers

CAFE completes the recruitment of 12 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). The ESRs will be based with network partners across Europe and South America in Spain, France, Germany, the U.K and Uruguay. 

With the start of the new year, we can finally welcome our 12 Early Stage Students in full as all of them have joined their respective teams. 

Each ESR will undertake an individual research project leading to the award of a PhD, working alongside the team members of the CAFE research group, with the objective of improving the forecasting of climate extremes, such as heat waves, drought, extreme precipitation or cold surges, on the sub-seasonal time scale (from 10 days to about 3 months).
