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 (dissertation). 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 required. Please send your application (by providing a motivation letter, curriculum vitae, copies of certificates and documents as well as information on scientific publications and names of two referees) within 2 weeks and quoting the reference number DR/158/16 to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät, Geographisches Institut, Dr. Schubert (Sitz: Rudower Chaussee 16), Unter den Linden 6, 10099 Berlin or via e-mail as a PDF attachment to email@example.com. HU is seeking to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and specifically encourages qualified female scholars to apply. Severely disabled applicants with equivalent qualifications will be given preferential consideration. People with an immigration background are specifically encouraged to apply. Since we will not return your documents, please only submit copies in the application. Please email Dr. Schubert in case you require further information.
