The Mesoscale Meteorology and Climate Research Group at the Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Research at the Goethe Univ. Frankfurt invites applications for a PhD position “Convective processes in a changing climate” (65%) The recent increase in computational resources has allowed to use regional climate models at a scale fine enough to resolve explicitly deep convection. The first decadal simulations have shown an important added value for modelling realistically convection related fields (e.g., precipitation, hail, lightning, etc.). Recent related studies suggest that the natural hazard due to convection in a changing climate may be underestimated in global and coarse regional simulations. However, the reason for this possible underestimation is not yet fully understood and many scientific questions remain. Your tasks: • Perform regional climate simulations • Apply innovative analysis techniques to large datasets • Investigate changes in convection occurrence and development in an altered climate Your profile: • master’s or diploma degree in meteorology, physics, mathematics or a related field • very good written and oral communication skills in English and good skill in German (oral and written reporting to funding agency) • good programming and numerical skills will be an asset • ability to work in a multidisciplinary team Salary and benefits are according to a public service position in Germany (TV-G-U E13, 65%). The position is open from September, 1st 2016 and will be limited to a period of 36 months. The Goethe University supports equal opportunity of men and women and therefore strongly invites women to apply. Equally qualified handicapped applicants will be given preference. The type of handicap should not prevent work needed to conduct the research. The duty station will be Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The employer is the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. Frankfurt am Main is a medium sized city in the heart of Europe. It is known as a modern green city, with large parks and a small mountain range (858m) that can easily be reached by bus. Frankfurt is also known to be an international city with multicultural and multilingual inhabitants. Due to Its location and infrastructure four capitals can be reached (Berlin, Brussels, Amsterdam or Paris) in less than four hours by train. In addition, it is located 15 min away from the second largest airport in Europe. Please send your application before June, 1st 2016 by e-mail (attachment in a single pdf document) and including a letter outlining your suitability for the post, a detailed CV, contact details of 2 references and a copy of your diploma-thesis and/or other exams to Andrea Radomilja Ruiz (RadomiljaRuiz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de). For scientific enquiries please contact Dr. E. Brisson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. Dr. B. Ahrens (Bodo.Ahrens@iau.uni-frankfurt.de).
