Positions in AWI Bremerhaven Juli 14, 2006Posted by Putri in Info.
Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI),
The AWI conducts numerical ocean modelling in order to better understand the general ocean circulation and the processes involved, with special emphasis on the circulation around the Antarctic and the production of deep and bottom waters there. One of our main tools is a finite-element general ocean circulation model, in which we assimilate measured data. To support this activity and to extend the application to research on tides and tsunamis, our section „Ocean Circulation“ is looking for
two oceanographers, meteorologists, mathematicians,
(Verg.-Gr. BAT II a) – Reference number 37/III –
The employment is subject to the regulations of the federal salary scale as far as they are applicable at the AWI.
*Requirements: * PhD and very good knowledge in oceanography or another discipline suitable for ocean modelling. Good mathematical skills and experience with FORTRAN/UNIX are necessary. Knowledge in data assimilation, numerical modelling or finite-elements methods are an advantage.
Furthermore AWI is offering positions for
two graduate students
(physicists, oceanographers, meteorologists) – Reference number 38/III –
whose areas of activity will be
• the further development of the global finite-element circulation model
• the design of regional models
• the development of a tide module
• the modelling of tsunamis in the tsunami early warning system
• the modelling of the ocean general circulation
• the assimilation of data
Requirements: * successfully completed studies in physics, oceanography or meteorology and experience in numerical modelling or data assimilation.
Furthermore, Department „Climate Systems“ of AWI is looking for
two graduate students
(physicists, oceanographers, meteorologists) – Reference number 39/III –
to assist in the BMBF (German Ministry for Education and Research) project: “Validation and use of sea-level data by assimilation in circulation models of the oceans”
The Alfred Wegener Institute carries out high-resolution numerical simulations of oceanic circulation and sea level. Gravity and altimeter measurements will be assimilated into the models to validate and use sea-level data.
Verification of different altimeter products regarding their consistency with ocean dynamics.
Calculation of regional and global sea-level changes for 20 years and more, in order to close the gap between the GEOSAT and ERS & TOPEX/Poseidon missions with the aid of ocean modelling and data assimilation.
Refining the ocean model resolution, to obtain a better description of the boundary currents, which allow the assimilation of level data, and prepare the use of high-resolution GOCE geoids.
Requirements: successfully completed studies in physics, oceanography or meteorology and experience in numerical modelling or data assimilation.
All positions are limited to three years.
You may obtain further information from Dr. Jens Schröter (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone +49 471/4831-1762.
The AWI aims at increasing the number of female scientists. Therefore, qualified female scientists are explicitly required to apply. In case of equal qualifications the AWI will try to give the job to a female scientist.
Severely disabled applicants will be preferred in case of equal professional and personal qualifications. Please consider the hint on our homepage under „jobs“.
The AWI supports balanced work-life career development via a variety of alternatives. In Bremerhaven, the AWI offers places in a day-nursery.
Applications with the usual documents (CV, photographs, certificates and performance records) are to be sent, mentioning the reference number, until 20. Juli 2006 to: Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung, – Personalabteilung, Postfach 12 01 61, 27515 Bremerhaven – http://www.awi-bremerhaven.de
