The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) is a multidisciplinary center for climate and Earth system research located in Hamburg, Germany. It is one of the premier climate science research institutes in the world. Located in the heart of one of Europe’s most livable and vibrant cities it provides a highly international and interdisciplinary environment for conducting scientific research as well as access to state-of-the-art scientific facilities.
The MPI-M is now opening two (3+1 year) positions for
to support the development and scientific exploitation of a new generation of Storm-Resolving (km-scale) Earth System Models (SR-ESMs). The positions are funded with partial support from the H2020 projects – Next Generation Earth Modelling Systems (GA 101003470; 2021–2025), and (GA 820829), and will allow the successful applicant to work on the most scientifically and technically ambitious simulations systems imaginable.
The objective of the positions is to evaluate and improve the representation of the coupled climate system using kilometer scale coupled models. These positions emphasize the representation of precipitating convective systems and their interaction with the underlying ocean. The successful applicant will:
As a scientific member of the MPI-M the applicant will be afforded a wealth of opportunities to: be involved in student advising; contribute to and initiate independent projects, including planned field studies of tropical convection over the Atlantic; participate in soft skill and various personal development trainings.
To qualify for the open positions candidates must possess:
Additional qualifications that will be considered in evaluating potential candidates include:
A election panel will be established to evaluate the qualifications, the experience and the ability of the candidates to fulfill the responsibilities as outlined above. In light of the institute and the funded projects commitment to support the career development of young scientists, preference in the selection will be given to candidates within a few years of their PhD.
The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology is committed to increasing the number of female scientists and encourages their application. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status.
