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*.

*Job Description*

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.
