Job description

Universität Hamburg, Germany, invites applications for a PhD position in theoretical oceanography.
The advertised position will focus on internal wave energetics and parameterizations of wave-induced turbulent mixing in ocean general circulation models, in particular, the IDEMIX (Internal WaveDissipation, Energy and MIXing) concept. Specific tasks include the extensions of the IDEMIX model, the comparison of existing model versions, and the evaluation against observational data (https://www.trr-energytransfers.de/research/area-w/w4).
As part of the collaborative research center “TRR 181: Energy transfers in atmosphere and ocean”, the successful candidate will benefit from the strong collaboration with partner institutions, dedicated training courses, and ample opportunity for (international) networking.
