Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II - Centre of Astro­nomy and 
Astro­phys­ics
Rese­arch assist­ant (PhD position) - 0.75 work­ing time, 3 years - salary 
grade E 13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len
Reference number: II-136/16

Work­ing field:
The pro­ject will extend exist­ing cli­mate and pho­to­chem­ical pro­cesses in 
a numer­ical column model of the atmo­sphere in order to sim­u­late hot 
Super-Earth atmo­spheres (e.g. primary (H2-He); steam; CO2-dom­in­ated) for 
extrasolar plan­ets orbit­ing cool host stars. These objects are at the 
cut­ting edge of atmo­spheric char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion in exo­planet sci­ence. The 
work involves close col­lab­or­a­tion with col­leagues at DLR-Institute for 
Remote Sensing who will sim­ul­tan­eously develop the­or­et­ical mod­els which 
cal­cu­late atmo­spheric spec­tral appear­ance and para­meter retrieval, and 
DLR Institute for Planetary Research who develop models on exoplanet 
atmospheric chemistry.

Require­ments:
Suc­cess­ful can­did­ates must have com­pleted a uni­versity degree (Dip­lom, 
Mas­ter or equi­val­ent) in phys­ics; a strong back­ground in atmo­spheric 
phys­ics/chem­istry and know­ledge of sci­entific-based pro­gram­ming 
(prefer­ably in FOR­TRAN); exper­i­ence in the hand­ling and visu­al­iz­a­tion 
of large data sets in a UNIX envir­on­ment.

More Inform­a­tion can be obtained from Prof. Dr. Rauer (heike.rauer@dlr.de)

How to ap­ply:
Please send your writ­ten applic­a­tion and the usual doc­u­ments (application 
letter, cv (including publication list), names of people who can be contacted 
for a letter of recommendation) to

Frau Prof. Rauer (heike.rauer@dlr.de) or to claudia.kieschke@tu-berlin.de.
Closing date: April 15, 2016

To ensure equal oppor­tu­nit­ies bet­ween women and men, app­li­ca­ti­ons by 
women with the requi­red qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons are expli­citly desi­red. 
Qua­li­fied indi­vi­du­als with disa­bi­li­ties will be favo­red.
Please send cop­ies only. Ori­gi­nal docu­ments will not be retur­ned.
