Sat May 13 11:22:51 PDT 2017
GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is a foundation of
public law jointly financed by the Federal Republic of Germany (90%) and
the state of Schleswig-Holstein (10%) and is one of the internationally
leading institutions in the field of marine sciences. Currently GEOMAR
disposes over an annual budget of approx. 72 million Euros and has
approx. 950 employees.
The research unit “Ocean Circulation and Climate Dynamics” of the
research division “Physical Oceanography”, is offering a
*PostDoc **position in Physical Oceanography *
*(Lagrangian modelling and analysis of glacier-ocean interactions)*
starting on *July 1st 201**7*.
Within the collaborative project cluster GReenland ice sheet/OCEan
Interaction (GROCE), funded by the German Ministry of Research and
Education (BMBF), focused on the marine-terminating 79°N glacier,
north-east Greenland, pathways of the glacier melt water, their
interaction with ambient ocean circulation will be investigated via
Lagrangian modelling and analysis using model output from the FESOM
(Finite Element Sea Ice Ocean Model, in collaboration with Alfred
Wegener Institute, AWI) and GETM (General Estuarine Transport Model, in
collaboration with the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research
Warnemünde, IOW). The focus is on nonlinear feedbacks due to increased
melt water flux (via mixing with the warm Atlantic inflow toward the
glacier), on connectivity between the glacier terminus and the shelf
with consequences for the basal melt rates, and on contribution of the
glacier melt water to the regional fresh water budget. The configuration
of the Lagrangian code for the FESOM and GETM will be a part of the
project. Comparison with observations involving the GROCE project
partners as well as model-intercomparison studies will also be included.
Applicants are required to have a PhD in Physics, Applied Mathematics,
Physical Oceanography, Atmospheric Sciences or a related scientific
discipline. We expect very good English language skills including
scientific writing, a publication record in peer-reviewed journals and
ability to work in a team. Strong background in numerical modelling of
geophysical fluids is mandatory. A preference will be given to
candidates with experience in Lagrangian modelling and analysis.
The position is available for a funding period untilApril 30th, 2020.
The salary depends on qualification and would be E13 TVöD-Bund of the
German tariff for public employees. This is afull-time position. The
position can be split.
