The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and its Institute of
Meteorology and Climate Research / Atmospheric Environmental Research
(KIT/IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, invites applications for a

Scientist/Post-doctoral position: Capturing Data for an Evaluation of an
Urban Climate Model

A new urban climate model covering the full spectrum of relevant spatial
scales is presently built by a larger group of German research
institutions funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research. A
major part of this effort is devoted to the evaluation of the emerging
model with existing and newly measured data from the urban boundary layer.

We seek a researcher to
• Prepare and conduct ground-based remote sensing (wind lidar,
ceilometer, maybe RASS or Raman lidar) and UAV measurements in the
German city of Stuttgart
• integrate this data into a database for the evaluation of the new
German urban climate model
• interpret the data with respect to the vertical structure of the urban
boundary layer and urban air quality and publish the results in
peer-reviewed journals
• finally performing preliminary simulations with the new urban climate


The candidate should hold a University Diploma or Master Degree in
Meteorology, Natural or Engineering Sciences or a related field.
Experience in ground-based remote sensing and/or UAV operations would be
very helpful, experience in handling larger amounts of data is required.
Competencies in negotiating with public and private authorities and with
other project partners are an important asset. Good oral and written
language skills in English are mandatory.
