Reference code: 50069546_4 - 2021/KS 11
Commencement date: as soon as possible for three years
Work location: Geesthacht (near Hamburg)
Application deadline: November 7th, 2021
In our Institute for Coastal Systems - Analysis and Modelling we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the field of geoscientific modelling and data analysis to start as soon as possible - limited - for a period of 3 years.
Within the framework of the BMBF-funded project "TECHNOLOGIEPLATTFORM H2MARE" and the project "MarEns", meteomarine data sets are needed to determine security risks and climate change impacts. The already existing data sets will be extended by ensemble members that include both existing and future offshore wind farms in their interaction with the atmosphere and the ocean.
Your task in this context will be to apply and extend the existing Hereon model system
GCOAST to account for the influences of wind farms. In this application, the GCOAST system
includes the regional climate models COSMO-CLM or ICON-CLM and the regional ocean
model NEMO. Further information about GCOAST can be found on the website.
Furthermore, your tasks will include developing strategies with project partners from industry and commerce to use the results of the model simulations synergetically with the industrial measurement data in order to make statements on logistical and safety-relevant questions in the offshore operation of technical plants. The cooperation in the project requires the processing of large amounts of data, which should be usable in applications from different disciplines.
Equality of opportunity is an important part of our personnel policy. We would therefore strongly encourage qualified women to apply for the position.
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon conducts cutting-edge international research for a changing world: Around 1,100 employees contribute to the tackling of climate change, the sustainable use of the world's coastal systems and the resource-compatible enhancement of the quality of life. From fundamental research to practical applications, the interdisciplinary research spectrum covers a unique range.
The Institute for Coastal Systems Analysis and Modeling studies the dynamics of coastal systems as part of the Earth system and develops prediction methods and future scenarios for coastal systems. One focus of our research is the study of coastal ecosystems, which are subject to increasing pressure to change due to climate change, use of coastal environments, and other human drivers.
Then we are looking forward to receiving your comprehensive application documents (cover letter, CV, transcripts, certificates etc.) indicating the reference number 2021/KS 11.Apply now
Severely disabled persons and those equaling severely disabled persons who are equally suitable for the position will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal requirements.
