The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and its Institute for
Meteorology and Climate Research (Atmospheric Environmental Research,
KIT/IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, invites applications
for a PhD position on

“Urban Heat Island Modelling”

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is the fusion of the former
University of Karlsruhe and the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. This makes
KIT a unique institution in Germany, combining the missions of a
university and that of a national research centre in the
Helmholtz-Association. With a staff of 8000 and an annual budget of EUR
650 Mio., KIT ranks among the largest institutions of research and
higher learning worldwide.

We seek a student with experience in numerical flow modelling. The tasks
will involve preparing the community model WRF for flow simulations over
urban areas and subsequent simulations in order to investigate different
adaptation and mitigation solutions for the urban heat island effect.

The work is incorporated in a three-year European research project, the
approval of which is imminent. It will be performed within the working
group “Regional Coupling of Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes”.

Qualification: master or diploma in meteorology, physics, mathematics,
flow engineering or four-year bachelor in the same disciplines with the
explicit entitlement to start a PhD study.

The remuneration will be in accordance with the German public service
regulations (TVöD 13/2). The term will last three years with no
prolongation. Female researchers are strongly encouraged to apply.

The position is open immediately.

Please send applications(letter of motivation, curriculum vitae,
references, names of two referees) as soon as possible to the address
below (preferably by e-mail), from where you can also get additional

KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment. We
therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this
position. With appropriate qualifications, applications from persons
with handicaps will be treated with preference.
