The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary center for climate and Earth system research located in Hamburg, Germany is seeking to fill the following position as part of a project on high-definition modeling of clouds and precipitation for climate prediction.

Scientist/Postdoc (m/f) – SAS2013-10 –

The task of the individual will be to develop very high-resolution benchmarking simulations, including sensitivity studies centred around the representation of cloud microphysical processes, using standard large-eddy simulation techniques over idealized domains.

An individual with a PhD in Meteorology or a related field, interest and expertise in high-resolution numerical simulations of clouds and convection is sought. Scholars with a track record of accomplishments using large-eddy or cloud resolving simulations and with experience working in high-performance computing environments are particularly desired.

Applicants with excellent programming skills (Fortran), an understanding of cloud and boundary layer processes, an ability and desire to work as part of a team and to communicate effectively in spoken and written English are particularly desired.

The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is located in the heart of Hamburg, Germany, one of Europe’s most livable and vibrant cities. The MPI-M provides a highly international and interdisciplinary environment for conducting scientific research as well as access to state of the art scientific facilities. For further information, including a more detailed description of the open positions, or a more detailed description of the HD(CP)2 project as a whole, please contact Bjorn Stevens (bjorn.stevens(at) Applications should be forwarded to the address indicated below.

The open positions are initially offered for two years, with the possibility and expectation of extension to a third year dependent on a successful mid-term review. Payment will be in accordance with experience following the German public service positions (TVoeD E13/14), which include extensive social security plans. The conditions of employment, including upgrades and duration, follow the rules of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Sciences and those of the German civil service. The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology seeks to increase the number of female scientist and encourages them to apply. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status. 

The selection process will start on 15. June 2013 and will continue until the positions are filled. Candidates who can start in the third quarter of 2013 are particularly desired, but starting dates could be delayed to later in the calendar year 2013. Please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of at least two references via E-Mail: as a single pdf-attachment with max. 5 MB only.
