PhD student (m/f/d)
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Institute of Coastal Research invites applications for a PhD student (m/f/d) for the project CLICCS-A6:” Earth system variability and predictability in a changing climate”. The position is for the duration of 36 months.
CLICCS aims to understand climate changes, taking into account internal variability, extreme events, and unexpected side effects, addressing the natural and social spheres as well as their interactions. CLICCS’ overarching research question is: Which climate futures are possible and which are plausible?
In the framework of CLICCS numerical models will be combined with innovative measurement concepts with focus on coastal extremes; methodologies will be applied to coupled model suites (waves-storm surge-circulation). A strong emphasis will be laid on studying the variability, predictability and the occurrence of the extremes, especially in the coastal areas through a combination of data analysis and advanced modelling systems. Active cooperation with climate scientists from different disciplines at national and international level is expected.
- Master degree in oceanography, atmospheric sciences, environmental sciences, physics, mathematics, or related disciplines
- experience in ocean, atmosphere or wave modelling and computational skills would be an advantage
- knowledge of English (written and oral); good communication skills and ability to work in an interdisciplinary team of various fields of geosciences
- willingness to travel and spend some time abroad
==> Closing date for applications is May 27, 2019
