Doctoral Student Position on Mineral Dust
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research - Department Troposphere Research
Climate: Past, Present & Future (CL)
As a part of the new Helmholtz Young Investigator Group “Mineral dust” at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research – Department Troposphere Research (IMK-TRO), we are inviting applications for a 3-year position for a doctoral student with background in meteorology, physics or a related field, ideally with programming skills, previous experience in numerical modeling and/or the field of dust/aerosol research.
The doctoral student will investigate the link between turbulent atmospheric forcing and soil mineral dust emission. She/he is expected to participate in multi-institutional field measurements in Morocco, and to set up and run the model ICON-ART for the field conditions. Using observational data, model experiments, and theoretical knowledge, she/he will study the behavior of suspended particles depending on their size shortly after emission. The successful candidate will work closely with national and international collaborators.
Start date: 01 November 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter
Supervision: Dr. Martina Klose; Co-supervision: Prof. Dr. Peter Knippertz
Review of applications will start on September 17th, 2020. The call for applications will remain open until the position is filled.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Martina Klose (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have any questions.
