Research Scientist (m/f/d) in the area of submesoscale dynamics
The department of Submesoscale Dynamics investigates the dynamics of submesoscale eddies, filaments and fronts in coastal and shelf regions. One focus is on their interaction with the biogeochemistry and productivity – and how these effects upscale globally. This is achieved with a combination of high-resolution observations and models for specific regional settings. Current projects include coastal and shelf regions of Cape Verde, Norway, and the South Atlantic.
We are looking for a qualified and motivated scientist to identify key processes, propose their adequate sampling as well as help to implement and evaluate high-resolution, physical-biogeochemical model simulations in coastal and shelf regions.
We invite applications for a research scientist position (m/f/d) in the research group Submesoscale Dynamics at the Institute of Coastal Research. The position is initially limited to three years. The place of employment is Geesthacht. Commencement date: April 1st, 2021
Your profile (essential qualifications):
- a doctoral degree in physical oceanography, engineering, or related discipline
- at least 2 years of post-doctoral experience
- research experience on physical-biological interactions at meso- and submesoscales
- excellent academic publication record
- knowledge of processing and interpretation of observations and model output
- good communication skills in English
- high degree of creativity and flexibility
