Forwarded from CLIMLIST... UNIVERSITY OF HAMBURG Faculty: Fakultaet fuer Mathematik, Informatik und Naturwissenschaften Department: Geowissenschaften Seminar/Institute: Meteorologisches Institut & Institut fuer Geographie 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 (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz)). The university intends to increase the number of women amongst its academic personnel and expressly 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. Requirements: - a Master or equivalent University degree in Meteorology, Physical Geography, Physics, Mathematics, Geophysics or similar discipline - experience with atmospheric modelling and climate data analysis - good knowledge of FORTRAN - good knowledge of spoken and written English Application dossiers (application letter, curriculum vitae, degree certificate(s)) are to be submitted by e-mail (<email@example.com>) or by regular mail (Prof. Dr. Valerio Lucarini, Universitaet Hamburg, Meteorologisches Institut, Grindelberg 5, D-20144 Hamburg, Germany) not later than the 18th of March 2013.
