full-time job | limi­ted to 3 years | Ent­gelt­gruppe 13 TV-L FU | Refe­rence code: MoWIT­rade

Sci­en­ti­fic Rese­ar­cher (Post­doc) (m/f/d)

Work­ing field:

The rese­arch of the working group "Wea­ther and Cli­mate Pro­ces­ses" hea­ded by Ste­phan Pfahl covers various aspects of atmo­s­phe­ric dyna­mics, extreme wea­ther events and the atmo­s­phe­ric water cycle. Nume­ri­cal models of vary­ing com­ple­xity and dif­fe­rent obser­va­tio­nal data sets are used to study atmo­s­phe­ric pro­ces­ses and phe­no­mena on time sca­les ran­ging from sin­gle wea­ther events to long term cli­mate change.

Job descrip­tion:
The post­doc­to­ral sci­en­tist will work in the pro­ject "Model­ling water pathways and iso­to­pes in the trade-wind boundary layer (MoWIT­rade)", fun­ded by the Ger­man Sci­ence Foun­da­tion, which aims at inves­ti­ga­ting the water cycle in the marine trade-wind region. She or he will deve­lop and apply sophisti­ca­ted mois­ture trans­port dia­gnostics in nume­ri­cal model simu­la­ti­ons over a wide range of reso­lu­ti­ons based on the ICON-ART frame­work. Pas­sive nume­ri­cal mois­ture tracers will be used in com­bi­na­tion with pro­gnostic water iso­tope simu­la­ti­ons to deter­mine the iso­to­pic fin­ger­prints of mois­ture pathways in the trade-wind region. The simu­la­ted iso­to­pic com­po­si­tion will be com­pa­red to mea­su­rements from the recent EUREC4A field cam­paign over the tro­pi­cal North Atlan­tic.



Doc­to­ral degree (PhD) in meteo­ro­logy, cli­mate sci­en­ces, phy­sics, mathe­ma­tics or com­pu­ter sci­en­ces.

(Pro­fes­sio­nal) Expe­ri­ence:
Expe­ri­ence in nume­ri­cal simu­la­ti­ons of the atmo­s­phere. Expe­ri­ence in the ana­ly­sis of the atmo­s­phe­ric water cycle and/or the iso­to­pic com­po­si­tion of atmo­s­phe­ric mois­ture are of advan­tage.

Flu­ency in Eng­lish and the abi­lity to work in a team.
