Dear all,

the Leibniz-Institute for Tropospheric Research e.V. (TROPOS) in Leipzig (Germany) is seeking a PhD student or a postdoctoral scientist in the field of coupled atmosphere-ocean modeling.

The major task will be to construct a high-resolution regional coupled ocean-atmosphere model with focus on consistent simulations of air-sea fluxes. This will be carried out in close collaboration with another PhD student located at the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research (IOW) in Warnemünde. The PhD student or postdoctoral scientist at TROPOS will implement the atmospheric component while the other student will concentrate on the ocean model component.  A main focus will be an energy-consistent two-way coupling at the air-water interface. Further research areas are mass consistent grid interpolation, optimized grid generation and handling of models with different timescales. The model systems will be applied to the Western Africa.


The open position is limited to three years. The salary level is according to the German public service regulation (TV-L 13) at 65% full-time-equivalent if the position is filled with a PhD candidate or at 75% full-time-equivalent  if the position is filled at postdoctoral level. The position will start ideally on 1 May 2015 or soon thereafter.

Applicants should have a background in atmospheric physics, meteorology, numerical mathematics, or fluid dynamics. A specific interest in numerical mathematics and scientific computing is advantageous. Good English language skills and the willingness to work in a collaborative environment are required.

We are offering the possibility to work at a highly renowned atmospheric research institute, and in one of the most attractive cities in Germany.

Female researchers are encouraged to apply. Among candidates of equal aptitude and qualifications, preference will be given to a disabled person.

Please send your application including your CV until 31. March 2015 to:

Dr. Oswald Knoth

Leibniz Institut für Troposphärenforschung e. V.

Permoserstr. 15

04318 Leipzig
