Freie Universität Berlin - Fachbereich Geowissenschaften - Institut für Meteorologie
full-time job | limited to 3 years | Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU | Reference code: MoWITrade
Scientific Researcher (Postdoc) (m/f/d)
The research of the working group "Weather and Climate Processes" headed by Stephan Pfahl covers various aspects of atmospheric dynamics, extreme weather events and the atmospheric water cycle. Numerical models of varying complexity and different observational data sets are used to study atmospheric processes and phenomena on time scales ranging from single weather events to long term climate change.
The postdoctoral scientist will work in the project "Modelling water pathways and isotopes in the trade-wind boundary layer (MoWITrade)", funded by the German Science Foundation, which aims at investigating the water cycle in the marine trade-wind region. She or he will develop and apply sophisticated moisture transport diagnostics in numerical model simulations over a wide range of resolutions based on the ICON-ART framework. Passive numerical moisture tracers will be used in combination with prognostic water isotope simulations to determine the isotopic fingerprints of moisture pathways in the trade-wind region. The simulated isotopic composition will be compared to measurements from the recent EUREC4A field campaign over the tropical North Atlantic.
Doctoral degree (PhD) in meteorology, climate sciences, physics, mathematics or computer sciences.
Experience in numerical simulations of the atmosphere. Experience in the analysis of the atmospheric water cycle and/or the isotopic composition of atmospheric moisture are of advantage.
Fluency in English and the ability to work in a team.
