[Met-jobs] IFE/IUP Bremen vacancies

From "Roger Brugge" <r.brugge@reading.ac.uk>

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
