Areas of responsibilities:
- lead and strongly contribute to the development of the Climate Service Center Germany regional climate model REMO to an operational high-resolution non-hydrostatic regional climate model and define strategies to extend the model towards a regional climate system model
- coordination, management, maintenance and development of the Climate Service Center’s Germany model suite; various data sets and the respective technical Climate Service infrastructure
- analyse the impact of the scale dependency of internal climate variability and its role/potential impact with respect to the development of climate service products for adaptation
- publish research findings in high-ranking international peer-reviewed scientific journals

Profile of qualifications:
- a university degree in meteorology, physics, maths or other related disciplines in natural sciences or earth science and a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline is essential
- extensive experience in the field of regional climate modelling, experience with the regional climate model REMO is desired
- extensive knowledge in scientific programming
- excellent skills in FORTRAN and python are essential, considerable experience in working with LINUX systems and high-performance computing systems is required
- sound knowledge on internal climate variability especially at regional to local scales

Scientist (m/f), starting October 1st, 2015 (subject to the financing), as part of the BMBF funded research project MiKlip2. Within MiKlip2 an operational decadal climate forecasting system will be developed and implemented. Within the project the contribution of the Climate Service Center Germany will be the demonstration of the usability of decadal climate forecasts for private companies. For this purpose the Climate Service Center Germany will develop jointly with partners from the private sector prototype products on the base of decadal climate forecasts that support companies to implement climate adaptation in their strategic planning process.
The position is initially limited to two years.

Areas of responsibilities:
- literature research with respect to the demand and the application of decadal predictions in practice
- development of pilot studies using decadal predictions for different sectors and regions
- product-based analysis of decadal predictions
- selection of the most promising pilot studies (based on prediction skill among other criteria) and bringing the selected pilot studies into practice in close cooperation with the project partners
- analysis of the information demand of industry partners regarding decadal predictions. The results are also reflected back to the developers of the decadal prediction system in order to optimize it for application
- organization of workshops in order to develop the pilot studies together with partners (bilateral and sector-overarching)
- compile scientific publications of the findings of the different areas in related international peer-reviewed research journals

Profile of qualifications:
- a university degree in natural sciences or earth science is essential, a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline would be beneficial
- research experience in the field of climate or climate impact modelling
- extensive experience in the practice-oriented inter-/transdisciplinary field of climate and climate impact research
