The Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics ( at the University of Innsbruck ( invites applications for a 3 year PhD student position and a 15 month postdoc position.

Innsbruck ( is the capital of Tyrol (, located in the heart of the Austrian Alps and surrounded by a multitude of skiing and hiking areas (e.g., The University, founded in 1669, is renown for its focus on mountain research. The Institute is build on a long tradition of research in mountain meteorology and glacier-climate interaction.

PhD student position:

The PhD student will contribute to ongoing research on coupled glacier-atmosphere-ocean interactions on the global scale. The position requires strong quantitative skills and demonstrated hands-on experience in modeling of complex systems, preferably climate.

The position is funded for three years (gross salary ~27.000 €/yr).

Postdoc position:

The postdoc will work with millennial-scale climate simulations from a variety of coupled general circulation models. Focus will be on mechanisms of decadal to multi-centennial timescale variability in the tropical mid-troposphere, where glaciers are located in East Africa, South America, and Papua New Guinea. The position requires strong quantitative skills and demonstrated experience in handling and analysis of large climate data sets. Previous work on tropical climate and/or glaciology is of advantage.

The position is funded for 15 months (gross salary ~47.000 €/yr).

Applications should include a CV and the contact details of at least two references (for the postdoc) / one reference (for the PhD). Applications and further inquiries should be send by email to Ben Marzeion (
