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

From Ulrich Achatz <>
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 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 (

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.
