Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum, offers a position in climate research, in
the field of atmospheric remote sensing and climate system analysis.
Depending on qualifications and experience of the candidate, the
position can either be used to pursue a PhD project (50% position) or
a PostDoc project (100% position).

Research in our group focuses on satellite-based and ground-based
remote sensing of clouds and aerosol, spatial and temporal patterns of
clouds and precipitation in observation data and climate models, as
well as on aerosol-cloud interactions. The successful candidate will
conduct independent research in one of these areas. She/he will have
received a Masters degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline, have
a pronounced interest in climate science, and be confident in the
handling of large data sets and in numerical methods. The position
includes teaching obligations (2 hours/week for 50% position, 4
hours/week for 100%) and can be filled for one year initially, with
