Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Open PostDoc position at Theoretical Cloud Physics Group, Institute for Atmospheric Physics, Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Germany Ice processes in clouds - investigations using multiscale asymptotics Project summary: This project is part of the new initiative "HD(CP)2: High definition clouds and precipitation for advancing climate prediction" of the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), which is dedicated to theoretical investigations and high-resolution climate modelling (spatial resolution of order O(100 m)) aiming at advanced parametrisations for the representation of clouds and precipitation in coarser models. In this project ice processes in clouds will be investigated using methods of multiscale asymptotics. For this purpose, equations for dynamics in atmospheric flows will be coupled with cloud microphysics including the ice phase. In the course of the asymptotic analysis, characteristic length and time scales and associated dominant processes on these scales will be identified. The new findings and related reduced sets of equations will be applied for some typical situations, essential for our understanding of processes and feedbacks in clouds containing ice particles. This project is collaboration between Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Prof. Peter Spichtinger) and Freie Universitaet Berlin (Prof. Rupert Klein), the position is located at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. This project has a duration of 3 years, starting preferably in January 2013. The salary for this position will be 100% E13 TVL. Required qualifications are: - PhD in meteorology/atmospheric physics (theoretical meteorology), applied mathematics (mathematical modelling) or engineering (theoretical fluid dynamics) - Experience in a higher programming language - Interest in interaction of dynamics and cloud processes Desirable qualifications would be: - Experience in asymptotic analysis and/or - Modelling of moist processes, including ice phase Applications with CV and names of 2-3 references should be sent via email to Prof. Peter Spichtinger (<firstname.lastname@example.org>) and Prof. Rupert Klein (<email@example.com>). Applications will be screened immediately until the position is filled.
