The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary center for climate and Earth system research located in Hamburg, Germany. The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology contributes to the ComparCE project funded by the DFG (German Science foundation) within the priority program “Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?”. With respect to this research program we have an open position for a


Scientist/Postdoc in climate modeling/data analysis (m/f-2013-09)


The main aim of the project is an objective and comprehensive assessment of the potential impacts, side-effects and uncertainties of various climate engineering (CE) measures and emission-reduction efforts. To achieve a fair comparison of different CE measures, these will be simulated in a single state-of-the art Earth system model (ESM).

The successful candidate will contribute to the project by: (i) performing and analyzing numerical simulations of different CE techniques (both land and stratosphere based) with the MPI-ESM; (ii) providing model output to the project partner GEOMAR, Kiel; (iii) comparing sensitivities of CE impacts as simulated by the MPI-ESM and an intermediate complexity model operated by GEOMAR. The project will be performed in close co-operation of all three departments of the MPI-M with German and international project partners.



-                     PhD degree in physics, mathematics, meteorology, or environmental sciences;

-                     Experience in modeling biogeophysical processes on a global or large-regional scale;

-                     Familiarity with coding and running computer models, programming skills in FORTRAN or C on a UNIX platform;

-                     Strong motivation and ability to carry out research in an interdisciplinary and international environment.
