For our research unit on „Physical processes“ (FE14) in our business area „Research and Development“ in the German Meteorological Service (DWD) at Frankfurt/Offenbach starting the earliest possible date, we are looking for a Research Scientist Research Area “Stochastic description of physical processes” (Reference Number 20111031) to be filled as a temporary position for 3 years. The post is part of the special research project “Improvement of Weather Prediction by Use of Satellite Data, Ground-based Remote Sensing and Ensemble-Concepts” with the task to develop innovative data assimilation methods based on ensemble approaches and prepare it for operational use to fully exploit the potential of existing and future remote sensing data. Further, the improved use of remote sensing data needs the development and implementation of appropriate evaluation and validation methods, to support the target-oriented improvement of data assimilation methods and provide hints for the optimization of future measurement methods for developers and manufacturers of remote sensing systems. The job description includes the following activities: Scientific development and efficient implementation on high performance computers of methods for the stochastic description of physical processes in the numerical weather prediction models of the DWD Investigation of the impact of stochastic parameterization schemes on the ensemble-based forecast components of the NWP system of the DWD in collaboration with developers in the field of data assimilation and ensemble modeling Documentation of procedures and results, presentation of results at internal and external meetings and in scientific journals. Necessary Requirements for the Candidates are: - Scientific Studies with a master degree or Diplom, preferably in Meteorology, Mathematics or Physics - Solid knowledge of English and German (spoken and written). Further Requirements: - Solid knowledge in the field of numerical weather forecasts - Extensive knowledge and experience in the parameterization of physical processes in the atmosphere - Firm knowledge and experiences in the programming languages FORTRAN or C and about the operating system UNIX/Linux - Knowledge and Experiences in the field of ensemble methods and the processing and visualization of complex and comprehensive data sets - Good skills in communication and cooperation (in an interdisciplinary environment) - Creativity and Innovation - Ability to transfer complex theoretical approaches into practical methods as well as to think and act conceptionally, self-reliant and target-oriented. - Good motivation and initiative, skills in planning and project management as well as presentation of scientific results International experiences are advantageous. The post is rated according to EG 13 TVöD. The assignment of levels will be carried out according to the personal experiences. Part-Time assignment is possible. The Deutscher Wetterdienst is committed to enhancing the balance between work and family and has been awarded with the ‘Job and Family’ certificate of the German Hertie Foundation for its efforts.
