Postdoc in Atmospheric Physics position for 3 years, with possible extension to 6 years in the Working Group on Remote Sensing of the Institute of Physics and Meteorology (IPM), Hohenheim University, Stuttgart, Germany Our lack of understanding of cloud and precipitation processes and the crude parametrization of related processes in atmospheric models is one of the major problems of climate simulation. HD(CP)2 (High Definition Clouds and Precipitation for advancing Climate Prediction) is a project of the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) that joins universities and research institutions in Germany to adress this problem by new measurements and modeling studies with previously unachieved resolution. The HD(CP)2 prototype experiment aiming at the formation of clouds and precipitation in the convective boundary layer is planned for spring 2013. Contributions of IPM to this ex-periment are measurements of 2D and 3D thermodynamic fields. For this, we will employ two scanning lidars systems for temperature and water vapor measurements. The meas-urements will be made in synergy with other sensors of the project partners (e.g., Doppler and aerosol lidars). The data analysis provides – among other parameters – mean fields of temperature and humidity as well as profiles of turbulent moments up to the 4th order and co-variances like sensible and latent heat fluxes. For the data products, a detailed error analysis will also be carried out. The task of the postdoc is to support the field experiment and to analyze the data collected by IPM as well as to merge them with other remote sensing and in-situ measurements. The optimum candidate should already have experience in active remote sensing and boundary layer turbulence. A PhD in Mathematics, Physics, or Earth Sciences or compa-rable achievements is required. If you enjoy to work autonomously in an international, transdiciplinary team of researchers and to perform field work in close coordination and communication with scientists from various disciplines, we are looking forward to your application. In order to increase the percentage of women, female applicants with equal qualifications will be preferred. The employment of severely challenged persons with the same occupa-tional aptitude is favoured. The position is open from now on and remains open until filled. Please send you application documents, to Dr. Andreas Behrendt Institut für Physik und Meteorologie, Universität Hohenheim Garbenstraße 30, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany Phone: +49 (0)711 / 459 – 22851 Email: email@example.com Internet: www.uni-hohenheim.de/www120
