Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Call for Helmholtz Young Investigator Group 2011 The Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research invites highly qualified persons to apply for a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group in the following topics, fitting in the research programme PACES (Polar Regions and Coasts in a Changing Earth System): Modern modeling approaches in the research of the earth system to complement TOPIC 4 (Synthesis: The Earth System from a Polar Perspective) of the current research programme PACES. Applications are welcome from scientists with strong expertise in climate modeling. The research topics should focus on global earth system modeling by integrating and expanding the earth system modules coupled with improved representation of polar processes, which opens new opportunities for analysis of the complex processes at high latitudes and their interaction with the global system. Observation and formation of scenarios in polar oceanography. Applications are welcome from scientists with strong expertise in observational oceanography to study the status and variability of circulation and water masses in the ocean in an interdisciplinary context. Close cooperation with modelers is of high interest. New approaches for combining observation and modeling in glaciology Applications are welcome from scientists with strong expertise in the main scientific scientific objectives of the glaciology department at AWI. These are both the reconstruction of ice sheet volume and the mass balance of glaciers by means of modelling, geophysical reconnaissance methods as well as field studies and the unraveling of climatic information stored in the ice matrix and in air bubble enclosures of polar ice cores. New approaches for combining physical, biogeochemical and biological sea ice research Sea ice is one of the major drivers of changes in the polar ecosystems. Applications are welcome from scientists with strong expertise in the interactions of physical, biochemical and biological processes of sea ice and its future development and consequences. New approaches in coastal research in temperate and polar regions. Applications are welcome from scientists with strong expertise in processes of coastal systems. The knowledge about climate change in coastal regions is fragmented over different disciplines. Therefore we seek to find a candidate liking data from theses different disciplines in order to assess the knowledge about past, ongoing and future climate change coastal regions. Qualifications needed are a completed university education in physics, geophysics, meteorology, oceanography, geology, biology or an equivalent field, an outstanding relevant PhD as well as other scientific achievements and some experience in raising of external funds and in teaching. How to apply – first step (as indicated on the Helmholtz web site) <http://www.helmholtz.de/fileadmin/user_upload/aktuelles/helmholtz-ausschreibungen/03_Nachwuchsgruppen/2011/Call.pdf> Ø Interested candidates contact the AWI of their own (Dr. Angelika Dummermuth, contact details below) Ø Applicants are recommended, if possible, to also contact in parallel the heads of research departments of the AWI. Ø Applications have to reach the AWI by 31th March 2011 at the latest. It would be preferable for applications to reach the AWI until 10th of March 2011 as the scientific advisory council evaluating the applications meets mid of March and to ensure that there is sufficient time to compile the complete application documents and to contact the university. Ø The AWI must be provided with a CV, a list of publications and a brief outline of the planned work programme (Letter of Intent, max. 2 pages). Ø No further steps are required by the applicant until the AWI requests further action. The AWI specifically encourages female candidates to apply with a view towards increasing the proportion of female scientists. Severly disabled applicants with essentially identical technical and personal suitability will be preferentially selected. The AWI is an equal opportunities employer. The AWI supports balanced work-life career development via a variety of alternatives. In Bremerhaven, the AWI operates its own nursery. Applications should be submitted to: Dr. Angelika Dummermuth, Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung, Postfach 12 01 61, 27515 Bremerhaven / Germany (<http://www.awi.de>). Angelika.Dummermuth@awi.de Applications will be accepted until 31st March.
