From Sebastian Schubert <>
To "''" <>
Date Thu, 3 Nov 2016 12:45:17 +0100

We are inviting applications for a three-year PhD studentship in the
field of regional and urban climate modelling at the
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany):

Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Department of Geography
Research fellow with expected 75% of the regular working hours – monthly
salary equivalent to E 13 TV-L HU (third party funding, short-term for
three years)

Job description: The successful applicant will advance the understanding
of the climate of Berlin, Germany, and its intra-urban variability. For
this task, the regional climate model COSMO-CLM coupled to the urban
parametrization scheme DCEP will be employed. In this project, DCEP will
be extended by adding a building energy module for the simulation of
building energy consumption and anthropogenic heat release as well as
indoor air temperatures. Furthermore, the effectiveness of heat-related
hazard reducing actions under the effects of global climate change will
be investigated. In collaboration with the climatology group at TU
Berlin, the successful applicant will evaluate, which scales and
meteorological variables are suited best for heat risk analysis. The
successful applicant will work on her/his research qualification
Requirements: Applicants must hold a MSc in geography or neighbouring
fields with core competencies in either physical geography, meteorology,
physics or similar. Knowledge of urban climate as well as regional and
urban climate modelling is advantageous. Experience with programming,
preferably in Fortran, is a prerequisite. Excellent mastery of English
and sufficient knowledge of German in both written and oral form are
