The Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (Mesoscale Meteorology and Climate Research Group) invites applications for a fixed-term position - available on 1st May 2020 or soon thereafter - for a PostDoc in Palaeoclimate Modeling (VeWA Project C1) (m/w/d) (E13 TV-G-U, fulltime, 39 months tenure ) The salary follows the Goethe University pay structure (TV-G-U). This position is based on research within the LOEWE consortium VeWA, specifically subproject C1. Climate proxy data for the Paleogene (>35 million years ago, >2x[CO2]) indicate a significantly smaller latitudinal temperature gradient in the temperate zones than today. There is a lack of proxy data in the polar regions. The project C1 will contribute to improve the understanding of the energy transport processes in the paleoclimate system. In addition, it aims at better understanding of polar amplification in an ice-free world and of changes in mid-latitude atmospheric circulation. Methodologically, this project will rely on sensitivity studies and inverse modelling using a global climate system model. More details on VeWA can be found at www.vewa-project.de An enthusiasm to help with some academic teaching is desirable. A contribution to the public outreach initiative of VeWA is envisaged. Qualifications: Candidates with a Master's degree (MSc) in meteorology, oceanography, physics, mathematics or a related field and a PhD degree in one of the aforementioned areas should apply. Experience in performing and analysing experiments with a comprehensive climate system model is required. In addition, motivation and ability to participate in model development in an interdisciplinary and international environment is necessary. We expect a highly self-motivated student with excellent communication skills, both written and oral, in English. Furthermore, a general analytical (problem) solving skills, a willingness to occasionally work flexible hours, independence and organizational skills are expected. Key to the success of VeWA will be cooperation and interaction amongst the VeWA researchers, co-PIs and PIs, as well as VeWA partners, such that teamwork and interpersonal skills are very important. The successful candidate will be trained in the relevant methods employed and supported by GRADE (Goethe Research Academy for Early Career Researchers). As part of VeWA, we offer excellent working conditions, an international multi-disciplinary working environment and excellent research infrastructure. Goethe University is committed to equal rights and therefore we particularly encourage applications from female candidates and those from under-represented backgrounds. Equally qualified people with disabilities will be given priority. Applications including a motivation letter, detailed CV, detailed description of research experience and interests (2 p. max), names and addresses of three scientific referees, should be sent as a single PDF document by e-mail to Ms. A. Radomilja Ruiz, RadomiljaRuiz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de, Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, J.W. Goethe University, Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, by 9th March 2020. Interviews are scheduled for the end of March 2020. Informal inquiries regarding this position can be sent to Prof. Bodo.Ahrens@iau.uni-frankfurt.de
