Upon funding approval the University of Hamburg will have a position
open for a PhD position (wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in mit der
Moeglichkeit zur Promotion) The PhD position is located within the
Bundle project CarBioCial "Carbon-optimized land management strategies
for Southern Amazonia" of the German Ministry of Research (BMBF).

- salary group 13 TV-L 50%, with a starting date as early as possible.

The position calls for 19.5 hours per week. The short-term contract will
last for 15 months (see also §2 of the Academic Fixed-Term Contract Law

encourages qualified women to apply. In compliance with the Hamburg
Equal Opportunity Law, preference will be given
to qualified female applicants.

Short description of vacant position:
Collaboration in the work package "Development and Implementation of
a Hierarchical Model Chain for Modelling Regional Climate Variability
and Climate Change over the Southern Amazonia" which is part of
of the Bundle Project CarBioCial. Within the work package the Climate
Variability in Southern Amazonia is investigated under the influence
of different climate and land use scenarios. An important part of the
work is to analyze, process and produce global and regional atmospheric
data sets over the amazonian basin. The goal is to condense the
modelling efforts into a portable and open source Climate Model Chain
using the Planet Simulator (PlaSim), the Weather Research and Forecast
model (WRF) and the System of Automated Geoscientific Analysis (SAGA).
Since the research area is at the interface between dynamical
meteorology and physical geography the collaboration with partners from
different scientific disciplines is an important part of the project.

Within the contract the applicant will have the opportunity to conduct
independent research and further his academic education as well as
acquire teaching experience. Moreover he has the possibility to use
the results of his research for a PhD thesis.
