Lidar Postdoc (TV L E13), position for 3 years available at the
Institute of Physics and Meteorology (IPM)
University of Hohenheim
Stuttgart, Germany

Water-vapor and temperature profiles with high accuracy and vertical resolution from the surface to the lower troposphere are fundamental for accurate weather forecasts, process studies, and validation of satellites. Within the ACROSS project of the Helmholtz Alliance, a new remote sensing system fulfilling these requirements will be developed.
The task of the Postdoc is to design, develop, and test the new lidar system in the IPM Working Group on Remote Sensing headed by Dr. Andreas Behrendt. Conditions for employment for the Postdoc position are experience in active remote sensing, laser technology, receiver and detector design, data acquisition systems, lidar data processing, and lidar calibration. Furthermore, expertise in at least one of these research areas is important: land-atmosphere exchange, boundary layer turbulence, or convective scale data assimilation. A PhD in Mathematics, Physics, or Earth Sciences or comparable achievements is required. If you enjoy to work autonomously in an international, transdiciplinary team of researchers, collaborate with industry, and perform field measurements in close coordination and communication with scientists from various disciplines, we are looking forward to your application.
In order to increase the percentage of women, female applicants with equal qualifications will be preferred. The employment of severely challenged persons with the same occupational aptitude is favored. As this position will be filled out immediately after a suitable candidate is found, please send you application documents as soon as possible to the following address:
Prof. Dr. Volker Wulfmeyer
Managing Director
Chair of Physics and Meteorology
