[Met-jobs] Ph.D. position in large-scale atmospheric dynamics

From "Christoph Jacobi" <>
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2020 14:11:10 +0100

The Institute for Meteorology (LIM), Universität Leipzig, Germany, invites applications for an open PhD Position (65% TV-L E13) “Large-scale dynamical mechanisms of Arctic amplification”.

The position is related to the Transregional Collaborative Research Center TR172 on ArctiC Amplification: Climate Relevant Atmospheric and SurfaCe Processes, and Feedback Mechanisms (AC)³ (, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Within the TR172, LIM together with the collaboration partners (Universities of Cologne and Bremen, TROPOS and Alfred Wegener Institute) aim to better observe, understand and model processes leading to the observed drastic climate changes in the Arctic. The work will include the numerical modeling of heat transport into the Arctic in response to changes of mid-latitude forcing, circulation pattern analysis, and analysis of the large-scale circulation changes using reanalysis and general circulation model output.

We expect strong interest in atmospheric dynamics. Applicants should have a Master-of-Science-equivalent university degree in meteorology, geophysics, physics, or mathematics. Experience in either numerical modeling or high-level scientific programming for data analysis is highly desirable.

The position is awarded for 3 years. Start of the positions is intended as soon as possible. We offer a productive and interdisciplinary working group including comprehensive supervision and integration into the thriving Leipzig Graduate School on Clouds, Aerosol and Radiation (

Interested candidates should send a CV; a cover letter describing background, training and research interests; certificates; and the contact information of two potential referees to

Reviews of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled. The selection for the positions will be based solely on merit without regard to gender, religion, national origin, political affiliation, marital or family status or other differences. Among equally qualified candidates, handicapped candidates will be given preference.
