The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) has issued a call for expressions of interest from national, regional and international institutions to host a coordinator for WCRP regional activities.

The incumbent, with and through the identified support provided by the hosting institution and partners, will lead coordination of WCRP scientific activities for regions under the guidance of the Joint Scientific Committee (JSC), and working closely with all WCRP groups, international project offices and the WCRP Joint Planning Staff (JPS).

All interested national, regional and international institutions are eligible to submit a LoI. Institutional knowledge and experience are welcome regarding WCRP-related activities such as WCRP Core Projects, Grand Challenges and Working Groups.
