Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin - Fachbereich Geowis­senschaften - Insti­tut für Met­eor­o­lo­gie Weather and Cli­mate Pro­cesses

Sci­entific researcher (Postdoc (m/f/d))

Full-time job | Lim­ited to 3 years | Besol­dungs­gruppe A13 | Ref­er­ence code: MET - AL_CAPONE_2021

Work­ing field:

Sci­entific Researcher (Postdoc) at the Insti­tute of Met­eor­o­logy, Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin. The Pro­ject is fun­ded by DFG for the dur­a­tion of 3 years. Salary grade 13 TVL, full time pos­i­tion. 

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.

Job descrip­tion:
The postdoc­toral sci­ent­ist will work in the pro­ject "dynam­icAL Con­strAints on regional pro­jec­tions of future Pre­cip­it­a­tiON Extremes (AL CAPONE)", fun­ded jointly by the Ger­man Sci­ence Found­a­tion and the Swiss National Sci­ence Found­a­tion as a col­lab­or­at­ive pro­ject between FU Ber­lin and ETH Zurich. The goal of this pro­ject is to reduce uncer­tain­ties in pro­jec­tions of future extreme pre­cip­it­a­tion intens­it­ies with the help of dynam­ical con­straints. To con­struct such con­straints, the sci­ent­ist will com­bine large ini­tial con­di­tion ensembles of global cli­mate mod­els with reana­lysis data and obser­va­tions of extreme pre­cip­it­a­tion intens­it­ies. She or he will invest­ig­ate the prop­er­ties of weather sys­tems driv­ing extreme pre­cip­it­a­tion dynam­ics as well as the sea­son­al­ity and spa­tial pat­terns of extreme pre­cip­it­a­tion events.


PHD in met­eor­o­logy, atmo­spheric or cli­mate sci­ences; Doc­toral degree (PhD).


Reques­ted: Exper­i­ence with numer­ical ana­lysis (e.g., Python, R, Mat­lab) of cli­mate model data. Exper­i­ence in the invest­ig­a­tion of the atmo­spheric water cycle and/or extreme met­eor­o­lo­gical events is of advant­age. Flu­ency in Eng­lish and the abil­ity to work in a team.
