Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Vacancy: Ph. D. Position in Paleoclimate Modeling at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany Background and tasks: The position is linked to the BMBF-Project titled „PLOT – Paläolimnologischer Transekt“, which will improve our knowledge and understanding of the climate and environmental history of the Eurasian Arctic. The focus of this position will be on modeling of changes of the water cycle and its isotopic composition during the last approx. 140,000 years. Simulations with a complex Earth System Model as well as with a spatially high-resolution atmosphere model will be performed and compared to data from various paleoclimate archives. Requirements: Successful candidates will have have a Master Sc. in physics, meteorology, or closely related environmental science disciplines and ideally should have a strong interest in atmospheric physics, geosciences and paleoclimate studies. Well-founded knowledge of basic physics and geosciences is a requirement. We are looking for candidates with enthusiasm and, if possible, first hands-on experience with coding and running global climate models as well as programming experiences in FORTRAN and Unix scripting. Candidates should have a strong motivation and ability to work in a highly interdisciplinary and international environment. They should be willing to present their results at international conferences and to publish in peer-review journals. Fluent English in written and oral form is mandatory. The successful applicant will become a member of the Paleoclimate Dynamics Group at AWI Bremerhaven <http://www.awi.de/en/science/climate-sciences/paleoclimate-dynamics.html>. The research focus of this group is the analysis of different climate conditions in the past and the identification of driving mechanisms causing climate change. The position is limited to 3 years. The salary will be paid in accordance with the German Tarifvertrag des öffentlichen Dienstes (TVöD Bund), salary level 13 (66%). The place of employment will be Bremerhaven. The full job offer can be found at <http://www.awi.de/arbeiten-lernen/jobs/stellenangebote/phd-student-paleoclimate-dynamics-group.html> As Ph.D. student at AWI you will obtain the opportunity to subscribe to the Helmholtz Graduate School for Polar and Marine Research ‘POLMAR’ (<http://polmar.awi.de>) Applications including CV, degree certificates, a statement of research interests and names and addresses of two referees should be submitted by November 1st, 2015 referencing code 95/D/Kli to: Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung, Personalabteilung (human resources), Postfach 12 01 61, 27515 Bremerhaven / Germany (or by e-mail (all documents merged into one PDF file) to: <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
