Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

  I'd like to draw your attention to the following 5 positions offered by
the Meteorological Institute of the University of Bonn, in Bonn,
Germany, and the Leibniz-Institute for Tropospheric Research, in
Leipzig, as part of our contribution to the Hans Ertel Centre for
Weather Research, a network of German research institutions and the
German Meteorological Service (DWD).

The Meteorological Institute of the University of Bonn and the Leibniz
Institute for Tropospheric Research (IfT) are internationally renowned
institutes in the field of atmospheric research and teaching. For their
contribution to the Hans Ertel Centre for Weather Research of the German
Weather Service (DWD), we are seeking highly qualified scientists for
the following five positions:

1.      Scale Space Tracking of precipitation cells (1 position for 3.5
years, 3/4 TV-L E13, located in Bonn)

2.      High-resolution dual 3D observation-microphysics composites (1
Post-Doc for 3.5 years, TV-L E13,  located in Bonn)

3.      Satellite forward operators and inverse methods for the 3D composite
(1 Post-Doc, 2 years, TV-L E13, located in Leipzig)

4.      Ensemble methods and seamless prediction (1 Post-Doc, 3.5 years, TV-L
E13, located in Leipzig)

5.      High resolution data assimilation (1 Post-Doc, 2 years, TV-L E13,
located in Bonn, preferred starting date: January 2013)

The candidates should have a strong expertise in one or more of the
following fields:
•       Remote sensing, especially in radar meteorology and satellite
retrievals (1-4)
•       Computer vision, and tracking/motion estimation methods (1)
•       Ensemble methods, data assimilation, ensemble Kalman filter and
numerical weather prediction (4, 5)

We offer a creative and productive working atmosphere, and an
interdisciplinary research topic which is carried out in close
cooperation with DWD and other participating institutions of the Ertel
Centre. The positions are subject to final approval by DWD, and the
envisioned starting date is as soon as possible (except 5). The salaries
are based on the German public servant's salary scale. Part-time
employment may be arranged. Among candidates of equal aptitude and
qualifications, preference will be given to disabled persons. Both
institutes are committed to increase the fraction of female scientists
and therefore encourage female applicants to apply.

Interested candidates should send their complete application (including
CV, cover letter describing their background, training and research
interests, certificates, and contact information of two references) as
PDF by June 22nd 2011 to Silke Trömel (<silke.troemel@uni-bonn.de>) for
position 1, 2 and 5, and to Hartwig Deneke (<deneke@tropos.de>) for
position 3 and 4, or contact us for more information:
