The position holder is expected to regularly attract external funding and to collaborate within the Regional Climate Research Group and with the other groups at Wegener Center and research partners on understanding how planetary- and synoptic-scale processes control regional climate and extreme events, and how these processes might change under climate change. Possible research foci could be the large-scale conditions causing heat waves, drought or heavy precipitation and hydrological extremes. We welcome candidates with expertise in designing atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM) experiments in support of the research projects pursued. The ability for and commitment to excellence in teaching in climate science, atmospheric physics and related fields is expected.
