[Met-jobs] PhD on aerosol effects on ice clouds, University of Leipzig, Germany

From Johannes Quaas <>
Date Tue, 22 Oct 2013 11:18:07 +0200

The Institute for Meteorology of the University of Leipzig has a vacancy for a

1 PhD position (m/f)

within the ERC-funded “Quantification of Aerosol-Cloud-Climate Effects by Regime (QUAERERE)” project, aiming at a quantification of the radiative forcing by aerosol indirect effects from satellite data and regional and global climate models.

The PhD project would statistically analyse a new satellite dataset for ice cloud properties in combination with aerosol-reanalysis data, as well as sensitivity studies with regional and global climate models to examine possible effects of anthropogenic aerosols on ice clouds.

- A degree in Meteorology, Atmospheric Sciences or related field
- Programming skills (Linux shell scripts, Fortran, data processing and visualisation tools such as NCAR command language)
- Good knowledge of the English language (German skills are welcomed)
- Some prior experience with cloud-, aerosol- and/or radiation physics and experience in analysis of remote sensing data and/or experience with climate modelling

The position is offered for up to three years. A good start date could be 1 January 2014, but this is flexible. Payment is 75% of a civil service position (TVL E13).

Applications include a detailed CV and the names and e-mail addresses of two references.
