Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 information. Prof. Dr. Stefan Emeis, Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research, Atmospheric Environmental Research (IMK-IFU), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Kreuzeckbahnstr. 19; 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>, <http://imk-ifu.kit.edu/index.php> KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment.
