Germany: PhD Studentships at the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH is one of the largest natural
science and engineering research institution in Europe. Our Atmospheric
Environmental Research Division (IMK-IFU) of the Institute for
Meteorology and Climate Research has a long tradition in atmospheric
environmental research, with its main emphasis on studying the impact
of anthropogenic activities on the interactions between atmosphere and
biosphere, air quality, regional climate, and hydrology. Studies in
these research fields are characterised by an interdisciplinary and
integrated approach involving field measurements, process studies
and numerical modelling. Results obtained in these research fields are
used for defining reliable and efficient mitigation and adaptation

For numerical modelling tasks within the project “Verification of the
turbulence parameterization and the description of the vertical
structure of the marine atmospheric boundary layer in numerical
simulation models for wind analysis and forecasts (VERITAS)” we offer a
position for a

PhD student


for a three year term as soon as possible. We seek a person who is
interested in numerical simulation strategies in atmospheric
environmental research and who has a master (Diplom) degree preferably
in meteorology, flow engineering, mathematics or physics. Experience in
numerical modelling would be an advantage but is not required. The work
will comprise running mesoscale numerical models and the evaluation of
offshore turbulence data.

The remuneration will be in accordance to the German public service regulations (TVöD 13/2).

The position is open immediately. Please send as soon as possible
(but not later than September 30, 2008) applications with the usual
documents to the address below (preferably by e-mail), from where you
can get also additional information.
