The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary centre for climate research located in Hamburg, Germany. It has an internationally recognised reputation in climate modelling. The MPI-M is located in the heart of one of Europe's most livable and vibrant cities. It provides a highly international and interdisciplinary environment for conducting scientific research as well as access to state-of-the-art scientific facilities.

 

Within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2014) “Carbon Cascades from Land to Ocean in the Anthropocene” (C-CASCADES), we are looking for an

 

 

Early-stage researcher ESRNR15

(m/f, SAS2015-09)

 

 

For working on incorporating riverine fluxes of carbon and nutrients into the ocean biogeochemical component of the Max Planck Institute Earth System Model (MPI-ESM) HAMOCC and (ii) extending the model to include crucial coastal processes and interactions at the coastal – open ocean interface.

 

Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Networks (ETNs) are joint research and training projects funded by the EU. Funding is provided for postgraduate researchers from both inside and outside Europe to carry out individual project work in a European country other than their own. The training network “C-CASCADES” is made up of 13 partners, coordinated by the Universite Libre de Bruxelles. The network will recruit a total of 15 early-stage researchers, each for 36 months.

 

Responsibilities

·         The objective of this position is to investigate the role of riverine fluxes in the marine cycles of carbon and nutrients within the MPI-ESM.
·         The researcher recruited for this position will work on (1) incorporating riverine fluxes of carbon and nutrients into the ocean biogeochemical component of the Max Planck Institute Earth System Model (MPI-ESM) HAMOCC and (2) extending the model to include crucial coastal processes and interactions at the coastal – open ocean interface.
·         The researcher recruited for this position is expected to disseminate the results through publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at international conferences.
·         He/she will form part of an international, interdisciplinary team based at universities and research institutes throughout Europe, and is expected to attend the training planned in the proposal in the disciplines of the project.
 

Qualifications / experience

·         An “early-stage researcher” is a researcher without a PhD, who is in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of his/her research career, measured from the date when he/she obtained the degree which would formally entitle him/her to embark on a doctorate.

·         Graduate degree in disciplines which apply mathematical modeling for environmental processes, e.g. oceanography, geosciences, physics, environmental sciences, or a related field.

·         Previous experience with ocean carbon cycle models and ideally also with Earth system models is of advantage.

·         Experience with coding and running computational models, programming skills, preferably in FORTRAN on Unix platforms, and expertise in model output analysis.

·         Open for an interdisciplinary approach regarding adapt as needed: i.e. computational sciences, engineering and measurement techniques.

·         The ability to work in an internationally-oriented environment, including fluency in English.

 

Mobility requirement

The applicant must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies etc.) in Germany for more than 12 months in the past three years.

 

Secondment requirement

The applicant is required to spend 3 months in secondment at DELTARES (NL).

 
 
Employment conditions
The position is offered for three years full-time position, starting in Spring/Summer 2015. 
In accordance with the Marie Skłodowska-Curie rules, the remuneration will be calculated summing up the following (gross for the employee):

·         Living allowance  is ca. 2460 Euro per month.

·         Mobility allowance is ca. 480 Euro per month.
·         Subject to eligibility, a family allowance of ca. 400 Euro per month might also be corresponded.

 

The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology seeks to increase the number of female scientist and encourages them to apply. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status.
