Dear colleagues,

the new German BMBF research programme "Urban Climate under Change
(Stadtklima im Wandel)", which will start in June 2016, aims at
development of an innovative urban climate model for entire cities like
Stuttgart or Berlin that is able to resolve buildings and vegetation at
spatial resolutions of 10 x 10 m² and finer, thus to simulate
micro-scale atmospheric processes at sufficient accuracy. Therefore,
comprehensive observational data on weather, climate and air quality
will be acquired for three German cities (Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart) to
validate the model. The BMBF research programme intends to involve
selected user groups in model development and data acquisition for
testing the new urban climate model and data acquisition concept and
analysis tools with respect to their usability for a number of potential
practical applications.

Two full-time postdoc positions will be available at the Technische
Universität Berlin starting from June 1, 2016. Excellent German language
skills are essentially required for both positions!

The first postdoc shall support Dieter Scherer (Chair of Climatology) in
his scientific and administrative tasks as coordinator of the entire
BMBF research programme. The contract will end on May 31, 2019, and may
be renewed for a second period of three years depending on additional

The second postdoc shall contribute to collaborative research on urban
climate and air quality in Berlin involving both the Technische
Universität Berlin and the Senate Department of Urban Development and
Environment Berlin. The contract will end on November 30, 2017.

If you are interested in one of the positions, please check the website
where the job offers will be published soon.

Best regards
Dieter Scherer
