The Department of Geography, Climatology, Climate Dynamics and Climate Change at the Justus-Liebig-University of Giessen, Germany, has an opening for
1 PhD position (65%, 36 months, E13 TV-H, Reference is made to § 65 HHG) in "Reducing the uncertainty on regional and local climate induced by land-atmosphere feedbacks"
The PhD candidate aims at improving land-atmosphere feedbacks with a high resolution regional climate model in order to reduce uncertainties on regional and local climate on seasonal, inter-decadal, and climate time scales. The topic will connect land surface complexity with land-atmosphere interactions on fine spatial scales. Relevant processes like dynamical phenology will be integrated into the regional climate model, which are important for land-atmosphere interactions on regional and local climate. The PhD student will analyze in detail atmospheric dynamics linking surface emissions and atmospheric measurements to identify key processes related to meteorology, and to find sensitive areas. The reduction of uncertainty due to the model improvements on regional and local climate will be quantified for the bias and extremes.
We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate that fit the following profile:
