The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and in
Teltow, near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. You can
find more information at <http://www.hzg.de>.

The Institute of Coastal Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht
invites applications for a 36-month Postdoc Position (m/f) within the
project Reduced Complexity Models, which is part of the recently
launched research initiative in Information and Data Science of the
Helmholtz Society.

This new project, a collaborative effort among a total of eight large
institutions belonging to the German Helmholtz and Max-Planck Societies,
aims at the exploration, design and application of efficient and
realistic models of reduced complexity that may act as surrogate of very
complex models that are used in the areas of climate, plasma physics and
health research among others. Within this project a strong
cross-breeding among different disciplines is expected to open new
avenues of research leading to innovative approaches within each discipline.

The contribution of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht to the project is
focused on the design of mathematical and statistical models of reduced
complexity that can be applied in the area of climate research,
specifically targeting the reconstruction of past climates combining
information from proxy records and climate simulations. However, a
strong interaction with techniques applied by other project partners
will be an essential part of the project, involving for instance methods
of image pattern recognition and identification of the relevant
mathematical subspaces, among others. In addition the successful
candidate will be deeply involved in presentation of results at
workshops and conferences and preparation of scientific publications for
international peer-reviewed journals.

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht expects candidates to have completed a
Ph.D. in mathematics or physics, or an equivalent degree with a solid
mathematical background, and with a very strong interest in applied
mathematics and statistics. The candidate will ideally have experience
with the processing of large data sets using UNIX/Linux platforms and
programming languages (e.g. Matlab, R, FOTRAN), preferentially in the
context of super computing environments. A good publication record in
international journals is a clear advantage. Previous experience with
the analysis of climate simulations, though not strictly required, will
be a clear asset.

We offer you:
-multinational work environment with over 900 colleagues from more than
50 nations
-extensive options of vocational training (i. a. expert seminars,
language courses or leadership seminars)
-flexible working hours and various models to ensure the compatibility
of family and career
-excellent infrastructure, including a scientific in-house library as
well as modern work spaces
-remuneration according to the standards of the collective wage
agreement TV-AVH including further social benefits

The advancement of equality at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht goes
without saying; in particular, we are striving to increase the
percentage of women in the science sector. Severely disabled persons
with equal qualifications will be considered preferentially within the
framework of legal requirements.

Appointment will begin as soon as possible after November, 1st, 2017.
Please send your application indicating job offer code no. 2017/KS 11 to
the e-mail-address: <personal@hzg.de> and include your CV, a statement of
interest and the names and addresses of three references in a single pdf
file.

Closing date for applications is October, 26th, 2017.

For more information about this position, please contact Dr. Eduardo
Zorita (<eduardo.zorita@hzg.de>).
