PhD position in Atmospheric Modelling at the IGMK – University of Cologne, 
Germany

The Atmospheric Modelling group (Prof. Yaping Shao) at the Institute for 
Geophysics and Meteorology at the University of Cologne (Germany) is offering a 
PhD position for 3 years starting in Fall 2016, within the Collaborative 
Research Center SFB1211 “Earth – Evolution at the Dry Limit”. The project title 
is “Development of an Aeolian-Biogenic model”.

We offer a productive and interdisciplinary working atmosphere including 
several possibilities for career development. The salary is based on the German 
E13 TV-L scale (75% time position) if terms and conditions under collective 
bargaining law are fulfilled.

Job description: The doctoral candidate will develop a module for quantifying 
the aeolian-biogenic interactions. Of particular importance is to quantify the 
strength and thickness of the biogenic crust, and to derive adequate 
parameterizations of these quantities as a function of environmental control 
parameters. At the same time the inhibition of aeolian erosion by the presence 
of crusts, as well as the effects of dust erosion and deposition on the 
formation of crusts will be considered. All these ingredients will be cast in a 
set of partial differential equations. The simulations will be extensively 
compared against observations from the literature and from the field and remote 
sensing campaigns within SFB 1211.

Requirements: We expect strong interest in atmospheric science with 
specialization in atmospheric and surface modeling. Applicants should have a 
Master-of-Science-equivalent university degree in meteorology, geophysics, 
physics or mathematics. Experience in scientific programming, preferably in a 
UNIX/LINUX environment, and knowledge in computational modelling is highly 
desirable. Candidates must possess excellent communication skills both in 
written and spoken English.

Applications: Interested candidates should send a CV; a cover letter describing 
background, training and research interests; certificates; and the contact 
information of two referees as a single PDF to meteo-jobs@uni‐koeln.de. Please 
clearly indicate which position you apply for. Review of
applications will begin immediately and continue until September 30, 2016.

Postdoc position in Atmospheric Modelling at the IGMK – University of Cologne, 
Germany

The Atmospheric Modelling group (Prof. Yaping Shao) at the Institute for 
Geophysics and Meteorology at the University of Cologne (Germany) is offering a 
Postdoc position for 4 years starting in Summer/Fall 2016, within the 
Collaborative Research Center SFB1211 “Earth – Evolution at the Dry Limit”. The 
project title is “Development and application of a Statistic-Dynamic 
Aeolian-Biogenic Model”.

We offer a productive and interdisciplinary working atmosphere including 
several possibilities for career development. The salary is based on the German 
E13 TV-L scale if terms and conditions under collective bargaining law are 
fulfilled.

Job description: The postdoc will perform high-resolution atmospheric 
simulations over the Atacama with the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) 
regional model for present-day and paleoclimate conditions. Those simulations 
will be integrated within a Statistic-Dynamic Aeolian-Biogenic Model (SDABM). 
The dynamical core will consist of existing atmospheric and aeolian modules, as 
well as a new biogenic module to be developed in parallel within our research 
group. The statistical component consists in the identification of climate 
modes and frequency via Empirical Orthogonal Functions, the dynamic core 
simulations for each climate mode, and the recombination of modes to determine 
the climatologies. The simulations will be extensively compared against modern 
and paleoclimate data from the literature and from the field and remote sensing 
campaigns within SFB 1211.

Requirements: We expect strong interest in atmospheric science with 
specialization in global/regional
modelling of the atmosphere. Applicants should have a 
Master-of-Science-equivalent university degree in meteorology, geophysics, 
physics or mathematics and preferably hold a PhD degree. Experience in 
scientific programming, preferably in a UNIX/LINUX environment, and knowledge 
in computational modelling is highly desirable. Candidates must possess 
excellent communication skills both in written and spoken English.

Applications: Interested candidates should send a CV; a cover letter describing 
background, training and research interests; certificates; and the contact 
information of two referees as a single PDF to meteo-jobs@uni‐koeln.de. Please 
clearly indicate which position you apply for. Review of
applications will begin immediately and continue until August 15, 2016. The 
selected
candidate is expected to start as soon as possible.
