The PhD student will contribute to ongoing research on coupled
glacier-atmosphere-ocean interactions on the global scale. The position
requires strong quantitative skills and demonstrated hands-on experience
in modeling of complex systems, preferably climate.
The position is funded for three years (gross salary ~27.000 €/yr).
The postdoc will work with millennial-scale climate simulations from a
variety of coupled general circulation models. Focus will be on
mechanisms of decadal to multi-centennial timescale variability in the
tropical mid-troposphere, where glaciers are located in East Africa,
South America, and Papua New Guinea. The position requires strong
quantitative skills and demonstrated experience in handling and analysis
of large climate data sets. Previous work on tropical climate and/or
glaciology is of advantage.
The position is funded for 15 months (gross salary ~47.000 €/yr).
Applications should include a CV and the contact details of at least two
references (for the postdoc) / one reference (for the PhD). Applications
and further inquiries should be send by email to Ben Marzeion
