The Institute of Environmental Physics (IFE/IUP) at the University of Bremen offers two PhD (German pay scale: E13 TV-L 50%) and one postdoc position (German pay scale: E13 TV-L 100%) on a time limited contract. The Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics branch of IUP (headed by Prof. John Burrows) has a long standing experience in the fields of satellite remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases (stratospheric ozone and related species, greenhouse gases, and air quality) and long-term variability of spectral solar irradiances. Position A: PhD student, three year contract. As part of the DFG (national science foundation) Research Unit SHARP-OCF (ozone climate feedback), see www.geo.fu-berlin.de/v/sharp/en/index.html advanced studies on the connection between Brewer-Dobson circulation and ozone in a changing climate using observational and climate model data shall be carried out. Position B: PhD student, three year contract (subject to final approval of funding agency). As a preparation for the Sentinel 5P mission TROPOMI (launch in 2015) existing retrieval algorithms for tropospheric ozone are adapted and tested using existing satellite data from SCIAMACHY, GOME-2, and OMI. Position C: Postdoc, two year contract (subject to final approval of funding agency). Within the new EU project SOLID (First European Comprehensive SOLar Irradiance Data exploitation) an extensive database of spectral solar irradiance data and associated solar proxy data shall be developed. A particular emphasis will be put on assessing the long-term stability of the existing data as well as providing a suitable error budget for the available data. Such a database will be very valuable for studies investigating the solar impact on earth’s climate. Part of his/her work will also contribute to studies on improving the quality of and harmonizing the solar spectral irradiance data Please see the attachment for full details.
