Department of Earth Sciences - Institute of Meteorology
Professorship (m/f/d) in Radiation and Remote Sensing of Atmospheres salary grade: W 2 (limited appointment for five years) reference code: W2 für Strahlung und Fernerkundung
Bewerbungsende: 15.08.2019

The successful applicant will cover the area named above in research and teaching.

A new network for planetary systems and remote sensing is being established in the Department of Earth Sciences. In this network, the professorship at the Institute of Meteorology covers the field of radiative transfer and remote sensing and deals with measurements of processes in the Earth's atmosphere as well as in the atmospheres of other planets, by employing and developing ground-based, airborne and satellite-based measuring instruments.

Appointment requirements are governed by Article 100 of the Berlin Higher Education Act (Berliner Hochschulgesetz).

The successful candidate is required to have internationally recognized, excellent research achievements in the field of radiative transfer in planetary atmospheres, with a focus on the earth's atmosphere and remote sensing of atmospheres. Further, applicants should have teaching experience in an international environment. We are looking for someone with proven expertise in the development of innovative methods, in particular in the combination of radiation modelling, radiative transfer theory and interpretation of satellite measurements. Additionally, applicants are required to have experience in applying for and implementing research initiatives and externally funded projects.

Apart from the official duties of the appointee in accordance with Article 99 of the Berlin Higher Education Act, we expect the appointee to engage in the following activities:

We expect the new professor to teach in the Bachelor and Master programs in Meteorology and the intended Master program “Planetary Science”, especially in the areas of radiation and remote sensing of atmospheres.

She or he will develop a promising research programme, which is internationally visible, appealing to external funding, and focuses on one or more of the following topics:

Radiative transfer modelling, also for numerical climate and weather models. The development and application of remote sensing methods leading to a better understanding of processes in planetary atmospheres.
    Preparation and support for new satellite missions.
The use of existing ground and airborne radiation measurement infrastructure.

The new professor is expected to engage in interdisciplinary cooperation, especially within the research network for planetary systems and remote sensing, with working groups of the Institute of Meteorology, as well as within the Geo.X network. Additionally, she or he is expected to involve in international research initiatives in the field of Earth and Planetary Exploration (e.g. in cooperation with Eumetsat, ESA and NASA). The appointee is expected to also address gender and diversity issues relevant to the field.
