For a research project at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Troposphere, IEK-8, we are seeking a PhD student (Chemistry, Physics, Meteorology or equivalent degree)

for a 3 year position starting in summer 2018.

Variability and long term changes of Water Vapour in the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere derived from in-situ observations

The PhD thesis combines for the first time the joint analysis of the two world’s largest data sets of UTLS in-situ observations of water vapour and chemical tracers (ozone, carbon monoxide) by passenger aircraft (IAGOS) and research aircraft (JULIA). Linking these observation data sets to the novel system of geophysical coordinate systems developed in the SPARC initiative OCTAV-UTLS (Observed Composition Trends And Variability in the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere ( creates a unique source of data for the investigation of the distribution of water vapour in the UTLS and associated trends which will cover two decades of data.

The proposed work addresses a highly relevant research topic and offers the potential for making substantial contributions to understanding the role of water vapour in the global climate system.

For your application please use the online recruitment system on the HITEC website Please submit your application with the relevant documentation until 7 January 2018. Only complete applications will be accepted for review.
