   PhD Position (m/f)                                                                
code no. 2017/CS 21
The place of employment is Hamburg.

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 Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS), a scientific organizational entity of Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Centre for Materials and Coastal Research, invites applications for a PhD position (m/f), as soon as possible, as part of the project “Detaillierte Einflüsse der winterlichen Klimaänderungen im Stadtklima Hamburgs”. The project is a close cooperation with Meteorol. Inst., Univ. Hamburg (Group of Prof. Schlünzen). Therefore, the successful applicant will work half the time at the University and become guest member of Universität Hamburg. It is intended that a PhD student will become a member of the SICCS graduate school of Centre for Earth System Sciences and Sustainability (CEN, Univ. Hamburg). The position is limited to 3 years.

The project aims at investigating climate change related impacts on the City of Hamburg with focus on winter. This includes the quantification of temperature and precipitation changes on the city level using regional and locale climate model results. A detailed city modeling with the microscale model MITRAS of current and future winter conditions is planned to investigate impacts on the city infrastructure and quantify the effects of adaption measures.

Areas of responsibilities:
-        refining the snow and frozen soil parametrizations of MITRAS and including a parametrization that allows to take snow on slanted roofs into account
-        conducting and evaluating the newly developed parametrizations using available observations and wind tunnel data
-        contributing thematically and technically to the progress of the project
-        compiling scientific and technical publications of the findings of the different areas in related international peer-reviewed research journals and contributing to the project reporting

Profile of qualifications:
-        a university degree in meteorology, physics, maths or other related disciplines in natural sciences and Earth science is essential
-        experience in the field of regional modelling of the climate or Earth system, preferably experience with limited-area climate and/or microscale models.
-        experience in post-processing of climate data for scientific application and using high-performance computing facilities would be beneficial
-        familiarity with the analysis of data sets from climate models. Excellent knowledge of the programming language Fortran. Profound knowledge in appropriate programming languages such as Python and R and experience with Linux/Unix computer environments
-        experience in communicating scientific results to scientists of different disciplines
-        excellent written and oral communication skills in German and/or English
-        willingness to work in an international and interdisciplinary team at the Climate Service Center Germany. Interest beyond the pure scientific analysis of data and processes is expected as the focus of our center is on the provision of decision making knowledge

Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr. Kevin Sieck (kevin.sieck@hzg.de) or Prof. Daniela Jacob (daniela.jacob@hzg.de).

We offer:
-        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 Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is an equal opportunity employer and particularly strives 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.

Please send your application indicating job offer code-no. 2017/CS 21 including your CV, description of your scientific expertise, publication list, copies of credentials including grades, and names and addresses of three academic referees preferably by e-mail in one file not larger than 10 MB to personal@hzg.de

Closing date for application is January, 14th, 2018.
