[Met-jobs] PhD Position in Atmospheric Dynamics (Frankfurt)

From Ulrich Achatz <achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de>
To Met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2014 11:38:57 +0200

On condition of final approval by DFG, there will be a vacancy in the research group Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate at the Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences of the Goethe University Frankfurt for a

PhD Student

The appointment will be for three years.

Applicants should hold a diploma/masters in meteorology, physics, applied mathematics, fluid dynamics, astronomy or a related field. Expected is a strong background in theory and/or modeling, and a capability for scientific work in atmosphere dynamics. The specific research field shall be the stochastic/deterministic theory of atmospheric waves, aiming at the improvement of our understanding of the emission of mesoscale waves from synoptic-scale weather systems. The research activity is to be embedded both in a national research initiative (DFG research unit) on the multi-scale dynamics of gravity waves, and in the corresponding international scientific community.

Some information on the research group can be found under http://www2.uni-frankfurt.de/45681958/Theory-of-Atmospheric-Dynamics-and-Climate. Its focus is on scale interactions in atmosphere dynamics, with applications to large-scale low-frequency variability and to gravity-wave dynamics. Middle-atmosphere dynamics is another field of work. Techniques used include multi-scale asymptotics, stochastic methods, and numerical simulation. Inquiries should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz (achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de).

Applications with the usual documents (CV, diplomas) should be sent by August 25, 2014 to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Institut für Atmosphäre und Umwelt, Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Applications will be considered beyond this date until the post has been filled.
