Job description

The research team “Climate Dynamics and Modeling” led by Prof. Aiko Voigt is part of the Department of Meteorology and Geophysics. We integrate innovative research, excellent teaching, and accessible outreach. One of our priorities is to find answers to fundamental questions in climate science, another one is to explore how our research can benefit practical applications. While we study a variety of topics ranging from climate change to Earth-like extrasolar planets, all of our activities are related to clouds, radiation and the circulation of the atmosphere. Climate models form the backbone of our work. This includes in particular models that simulate the global climate system at kilometer-scale resolution.

We invite you to visit the website of our research team:

We are looking for a senior scientist to join our team. Together with Aiko Voigt, you will coordinate and lead the team’s modeling and data analysis activities. You will also have substantial freedom to articulate a research program that reflects your interests and expertise and complements the activities of the team. For example, your research program could harness exascale computing and kilometer-scale climate modeling, and build upon the growing interactions between climate, weather and data science.

The envisioned start date is 1 June 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter, with flexibility to accommodate the needs of the successful candidate. The position is initially limited to 3 years. A transition to a permanent position is possible through mutual agreement.
