[Met-jobs] PhD position at the University of Bremen

From Mathias Palm <>
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:15:20 +0200

One 3-year Ph.D. position in: FTIR trace gas measurements on Spitsbergen
Salary is according to the German federal employee scale TVL-13 (50%) and this 
position is limited to a term of 36 months.
+The position is open from Mai 2016.

Work content Ph.D. position: Measurements of atmospheric trace gases using FTIR 
spectroscopy on Spitsbergen.
The Arctic warms faster than the rest of the world. This effect is only poorly 
understood, i.e. models do not reproduce this
+strong warming of the Arctic atmosphere. This effect is called the Arctic 
Amplification. The project AC3 aims at filling the
+gaps in understanding the special dynamics of the Arctic, in particular to 
find the â??missing ingredientâ?? causing this
+enhanced warming.
In this position, Measurements of atmospheric trace gases on Spitsbergen in the 
high Arctic will be taken. The measurements
+will be interpreted in combination with other observations obtained at the 
same place.
The aim of this project to improve the understanding of the Arctic Atmosphere 
through a combination of different measurements
+of different atmospheric parameters and by exploiting synergies they offer.

M.Sc. degree or equivalent in physics, oceanography, meteorology, remote 
sensing, geophysics, mathematics or related fields.
Skills in scientific computer programming (e.g., Python, IDL, Matlab or 
similar) and a strong interest to work in the field
+of ground based remote sensing of the atmosphere.
The successful candidate is required to work in a team and to travel to 
Spitsbergen in order to perform measurements.

The Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP) provides a stimulating, 
international, and pleasant work environment and is
+strongly involved in the international climate and space science community. 
The focus of our work in environmental physics
+is the investigation of the atmosphere, the cryosphere, and the oceans of the 
earth. We have state-of-the art lab equipment,
+and high computational capacity, which is essential for the data processing of 
our projects. Many of our scientific projects
+are using external platforms like the research vessel "Polarstern", aircrafts, 
stratospheric balloons, and ground based
+stations all around the world, from the tropics to the poles.
As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female 
employees in science, women are particularly
+encouraged to apply. In case of equal personal aptitudes and qualification 
priority will be given to disabled persons.
+Applicants with a migrant background are particularly invited to apply. The 
position will remain open until filled. The
+application should include details of relevant qualifications and experience, 
CV, copies of transcripts, and names of at
+least two referees.
