Forschungszentrum Jülich - a member of the Helmholtz Association of German National Research Centres - is one of the largest interdisciplinary research centres in Europe. The institute for energy and climate research – troposphere (IEK-8) pursues cutting edge research in atmospheric chemistry and is seeking to strengthen its global numerical modeling group in the topic of chemistry-climate interactions. The research group “Global Modeling” of IEK-8 develops and runs a comprehensive global model for atmospheric chemistry, aerosols and climate and investigates the feedbacks between air pollution and climate change.


We are looking for an experienced atmospheric modeler to evaluate tropospheric trace gas cycles in our newly developed chemistry climate model ECHAM6-HAMMOZ and to apply the model in comprehensive future scenario simulations. The candidate is expected to have excellent knowledge in various aspects of atmospheric chemistry and/or the climate system and shall have strong interest in the investigation of processes that are relevant for the coupling of atmospheric chemistry and climate. We require very good programming skills (FORTRAN, Python) and the ability to work independently and integrate well in a team. Excellent communication skills in English are a requirement as we maintain close collaborations with several international partners, for example in the EU projects MACC and PEGASOS to which this work will contribute.


If you can provide the following:

·         PhD in meteorology, physics, chemistry, or environmental engineering

·         Experience with comprehensive atmospheric chemistry climate or chemistry transport models

·         Outstanding publication record

·         Excellent programming skills (Unix, FORTRAN, Python)

·         Very good command of the English language

·         Strong ability to work independently and in a team


we are looking forward to your online application. Please quote the reference code 2012-327 and include meaningful documentation of your PhD achievements and publication record.


We offer you


•             A diverse and highly motivated international research team

•             A broad spectrum of scientific challenges and research topics

•             Excellent technical support and access to Europe’s leading supercomputing facilities


Depending on the qualification of the candidate and the assigned tasks a payment according to tariff part Entgeltgruppe 13-14 TVöD.

Forschungszentrum Jülich aims to employ more women in this area and therefore particularly welcomes applications from women. We also welcome applications from disabled persons.
