The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M), a multidisciplinary centre for climate and Earth system research located in Hamburg, Germany, invites applications for the following positions: 2 PhD (m/f) in Atmospheric Sciences (2011-09) The applicants will be part of the newly founded Hans Ertel Research Group Clouds and Convection in the Department The Atmosphere in the Earth System. Our group studies the behaviour of clouds, convection, boundary layer and microphysical proc-esses holistically with the goal of improving the representation of these processes in atmospheric models. Our group is also affiliated to the Hans Ertel Zentrum for Weather Research, a network between German research institutions and the German Weather Service (DWD) and thus works in closed collaboration with DWD. One PhD project is offered on cloud structures during regime transitions. The project involves conducting large-eddy simulations of transition cases (e.g., from stratocumulus to shallow cumu-lus) to help identify regime limitations of process parameterizations and scaling laws. The second PhD project focuses on the development of a stochastic boundary layer scheme to account for sub-grid variability in numerical weather prediction models. We are looking for two highly motivated individuals with M.Sc. or diploma in Geo-sciences, Oceanography, Environmental Sciences, Physics or a related field. Experi-ence, or a strong interest in atmospheric sciences and modeling is of advantage. Good programming skills (FORTRAN on Unix platforms) are desirable, since the applicants will use facilities of the high performance computing centre. The working language is English. The MPI-M expects doctoral students to participate in the International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modeling and thus to fulfil its requirements. The positions are offered for three years, starting 1st September 2011 or soon thereaf-ter. Payment will be in accordance with German public service positions including ex-tensive social security plans. The conditions of employment follow the rules of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Sciences and those of the German civil service. For further information on the positions, please contact Dr. Cathy Hohenegger (email@example.com) and visit http://www.mpimet.mpg.de. The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology seeks to increase the number of female sci-entists and encourages them to apply. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifi-cations receive preferential status. All applications (including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, copies of scientific degrees, and the names and contact information of at least two referees) received before 11th of April 2011 will have full consideration. The positions will remain open until filled. Applications should be sent via E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (max. 2 MB pdf-attachment) or by post to: Max Planck Institute for Meteorology Administration (2011-09) Bundesstrasse 53 D-20146 Hamburg, Germany
