[Met-jobs] Research-scientist position in atmospheric dynamics at the Goethe Universitaet Frankfurt

From Ulrich Achatz <>
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2016 10:54:59 +0100

In the research group Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate at the Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences of the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-Universitaet Frankfurt there is a vacancy for a

Research Scientist (E13 TV-GU)

The initial appointment will be for three years.

Applicants should have a very good PhD in meteorology, physics, applied mathematics, fluid dynamics, astronomy or a related field. Expected is a strong background in theory and/or modeling, and a capability for scientific work in atmosphere dynamics. The specific research field shall be the theory of mesoscale and sub-mesoscale waves, and their interaction with larger-scale flow, aiming at the improvement of the description of gravity waves in weather and climate models.

The post offers the possibility for further scientific qualification within the German system (Habilitation). Within this framework a modest participation in teaching in the meteorology program is expected as well as in attracting external funding. The international research activities shall be embedded in a present national research initiative on the multi-scale dynamics of gravity waves.

Some information on the research group can be found under It has a focus on scale interactions in atmospheric dynamics, applied e.g. to large-scale low-frequency variability, gravity-waves or middle-atmosphere dynamics. Methods employed are, e.g., multi-scale asymptotics, stochastics and numerical simulations. Inquiries should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz (

Applications with the usual documents (CV, transcripts, diplomas, and list of publications) should be sent by 31.1.17 to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Institut für Atmosphäre und Umwelt, Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Applications will be considered beyond this date until the post has been filled.
