Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Postdoc Position (m/f) code no. 2014/CSC 1 The place of employment is Hamburg. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and in Teltow, near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. You can find more information at http://www.hzg.de <http://www.hzg.de/>. The Climate Service Center (CSC); an institution of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht invites applications for a 3 year Postdoc Position (m/f),starting March 1^st , 2014, as part of the Norwegian, Indian, German joint research activity GLACINDIA. The primary objective of GLACINDIA is to produce updated and scientifically robust data on water related effects of changes in mass balance of glaciers and river runoff, aiming at reducing uncertainties in the region of Western Himalaya. This will be achieved by a combination of field data and measurements coupled with climate downscaling and modelling of glacier mass balance and model experiments at two glaciers in NW Himalaya, India. The project will further contribute to the understanding of the potential impact of climate changes on glaciers and glacier-fed rivers in the region. A focus is set to the effective and targeted dissemination of the results to governmental agencies and stakeholders. The open position is based at the CSC in Hamburg, however several visits to the study region and to other places for scientific workshops and project/stakeholder meetings will be necessary within the project phase. The successful candidate at the CSC will conduct and analyse regional climate simulations with the regional climate model REMO for today’s and future climate conditions. For these simulations REMO will be used in a configuration with and without a dynamical glacier scheme. Furthermore the successful candidate will be responsible for the development of new tools in order to tailor the project results to the needs of users and stakeholders in the region. The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline and has experience in the field of regional or global modelling of the climate or earth system. The candidate has to be familiar with the analysis of large data sets. Knowledge in appropriate software tools such as Python, R, Fortran and experience with Linux/Unix computer environments are essential. Moreover, the candidate should have an interest beyond the pure scientific analysis of data and processes as the project also aims at a strong interaction between research and stakeholders. Experience in the work with stakeholders preferably from the study region would be a clear advantage. The willingness for frequent travel activities to take part in project meetings, workshops and conferences is essential. Finally, excellentwritten and oral communication skills in English are expected, as well as a record of peer reviewed publications in order to demonstrate the skill to publish the work in scientific journals and the willingness to work in an international and interdisciplinary team. Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr. Daniela Jacob, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. We offer an appropriate salary related to TV-AVH as well as the usual public sector social benefits. The advancement of equality at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht goes without saying; in particular, we are striving to increase the percentage of women in the science sector. Severely disabled persons with equal qualifications will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal requirements. Please send your application indicating job offer code-no. 2014/CSC 1 including your CV, description of your scientific expertise, publication list, copies of credentials (B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D.) including grades, and names and addresses of three academic referees preferably by e-mail in one file not larger than 10 MB to firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> or to Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Max-Planck-Straße 1, 21502 Geesthacht, Germany. Closing date for application is February 6th , 2014. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Zentrum für Material- und Küstenforschung GmbH Max-Planck-Straße 1 I 21502 Geesthacht I Deutschland/Germany Geschäftsführer/Board of Management: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kaysser, Dipl.-Ing.
