[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral Position (Atmospheric Wave Dynamics) at the Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany

From Ulrich Achatz <>
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 19:08:05 +0200

In the research group  Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate

at the Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences of the Goethe University Frankfurt

there will be, on condition of final approval of the project proposal, a vacancy for a

Postdoctoral Scientist (E13 TV-GU)

The appointment will be for three years. Optimal starting date would be March 1st 2013.

Applicants should have a very good PhD in meteorology, physics, applied mathematics, fluid dynamics, astronomy or a related field. Expected is a strong background in theory and numerical modeling, and a capability for scientific work in atmosphere dynamics. The specific research field shall be the theory and modeling of the interaction between gravity waves and solar tides. The successful applicant will address this issue with the help of a newly developed ray-tracing code (Senf and Achatz, J. Geophys. Res., 2011) which is to be coupled to a dynamic model for solar tides (Achatz et al. J. Geophys. Res., 2008). An interest in the theoretical basis of multi-scale wave modeling and the readiness to take an active role in the further improvement of the corresponding tools would be important.

Some information on the research group can be found under It has a focus on scale interactions in atmospheric dynamics, applied e.g. to large-scale low-frequency variability or to gravity-wave dynamics. Middle-atmosphere dynamics is another field of work. Inquiries should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz (

Applications with the usual documents (CV, diplomas, list of publications) should be sent by 31.10.12 to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Institut für Atmosphäre und Umwelt, Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Applications will be considered beyond this date until the post has been filled.
