Forwarded from CLIMLIST... PhD Position (m/f) code no. 2012/KS 4 The place of employment is Geesthacht, Germany. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and in Teltow, near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. You can find more information at <http://www.hzg.de>. The Institute for Coastal Research in Geesthacht, near Hamburg, Germany, invites applications for a 3-year PhD Position (m/f) for the project CLISCODE (Climate Signals in Coastal Deposits). This project, a collaboration between the Geological and Paleontological Institute of the Hamburg University and the Institute for Coastal Research of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is framed by the Helmholtz Climate Initiative REKLIM (Regional climate change) -a consortium of eight research centres within the Helmholtz Association. REKLIM is using its unique combination of competence in regional observations and process studies coupled with model simulations to improve regional and global climate models, and provide a solid basis for climate-related decision support. Moreover, global climate simulations are used to determine the effects of climate variability and change on the regional scale with improved modelling tools for attribution and impact studies. For more information see <http://www.reklim.de/en/home/>. The interdisciplinary project CLISCODE aims to reconstruct long-term changes of the regional wind climate at the south-western coast of the Baltic Sea on timescales of decades to centuries with the general aim to help understand the magnitude and mechanisms of long-term wind changes and place the recent and projected climate changes in this region within the perspective of the recent past. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht contribution to the project involves the joint statistical analyses of existing global and regional climate model simulations over the past millennia under different forcing configurations together with observational datasets and proxy-based climate reconstructions from coastal deposits (dune systems). The study includes the identification of large-scale processes which are relevant for the regional storm climate in the last centuries and its evaluation, together with the responsible climate drivers from regional to local scales, including the analyses of the influence of external and internal variability. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht invites highly motivated candidates with a basic knowledge of the field of climate sciences. The adequate candidate has first demonstrated experiences in the application of statistics to analyse and interpret long climatic data sets and a strong interest in expanding his/her experience in this field. Interest in the interpretation of climate proxies is welcome. She/he has good organisation skills. Some experiences with Unix-based computers and basis programming skills in modern FORTRAN and R will be positively considered. The candidate is expected to have good written and oral communication skills in English to publish his/her work in papers in scientific journals and presenting materials at science workshops and scientific conferences. The candidate should be highly motivated to work in a team spread across diverse geographic locations and from different partner institutions in Germany and Poland. Due to the interdisciplinary of this project there will be the optional opportunity to attend field works at the Polish Baltic coast to learn more about methods to derive proxy data sets from coastal sediments. Thus, basic language skills in German and Polish are an advantage. Contact person at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht: Dr Birgit HÃ¼nicke (<email@example.com>), (Department Long-term impacts on coastal zones) and Dr. Eduardo Zorita (<firstname.lastname@example.org>). We offer an appropriate salary related to TV-AVH as well as the usual public sector social benefits. The advancement of equality at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht goes without saying; in particular, we are striving to increase the percentage of women in the science sector. Severely disabled persons with equal qualifications will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal requirements. Please send your application indicating job offer code no. 2012/KS 4 to Max-Planck-Strasse 1, 21502 Geesthacht, Germany, or to the e-mail-address: <email@example.com>. Please include your CV, a statement of interest and the names and addresses of three references. Closing date for applications is April 12th, 2012. ******************************************************* In case of problems, you can use the alternative address firstname.lastname@example.org
