************************************************************************************************************
The interview process within the Collaborative Research Center “Waves to Weather” has
begun but applications are encouraged as long as the positions are still open. Positions are available immediately, but starting dates are negotiable. ************************************************************************************************************

Our ability to predict the weather up to a week or more ahead saves our
societies billions of Euros annually and protects human life and property. The great challenge today is to identify the limits of weather predictability in different situations and produce the best forecasts that are physically possible.

The Collaborative Research Center “Waves to Weather” (CRC 165; W2W) is conceived to meet this challenge and to deliver the underpinning science urgently needed to pave the way towards a new generation of weather forecasting systems.

The W2W consortium consists of:
- the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich
- the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität (JGU) in Mainz
- the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) in Karlsruhe
- the Technische Universität München (TUM)

- the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen

- the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität (RKU) in Heidelberg

- the Universität Hamburg (UHH).

The consortium features an innovative program for the development of early career researchers within a strong network of experienced colleagues and conducts an ambitious program to gradually enhance gender equality on all career levels within the academic fields combined in W2W.

The following positions are available within the W2W consortium:
- 19 PhD positions: 18 PhD positions part-time (75%) at the salary grade E13 TV-L and 1 PhD position full-time at the salary grade E13 TV-L
- 1 Postdoc position full-time at the salary grade E13 TV-L
- 2 scientific programmer positions full-time at the salary grade E13 TV-L

Applicants are asked to refer to one of the following topics:

Responsibilities and requirements depend on the project and are outlined on the website http://www.wavestoweather.de/positions/. The positions are fixed-term employment contracts. Contracts are time-limited according to the Academic Fixed-Term Contract Law (WissZeitVG). The salary scale is TV-L E13. Positions are available immediately, but the starting date is negotiable. Please let us know when you are able to start.

Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal suitability. The W2W consortium strives to increase the proportion of women in research and specifically encourages females to apply for these positions.
