Transregional Collaborative Research Center "Waves to Weather"

Meteorologisches Institut

Our ability to predict the weather up to a week or more ahead saves our societies billions of Euros annually and protects human life and property. The great challenge today is to identify the limits of weather predictability in different situations and produce the best forecasts that are physically possible.

On July 1st 2015, the Transregional Collaborative Research Center “Waves to Weather” (W2W; SFB/TRR165) was established to address these issues and to deliver the underpinning science urgently needed to pave the way towards a new generation of weather forecasting systems.

The W2W consortium consists of:
- the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU, Munich)
- the Johannes Gutenberg-University (JGU, Mainz)
- the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), together with
- the Technische Universität München (TUM)
- the Heidelberg University, and
- the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR, Munich).

The following positions are available within the W2W consortium:

- 15 PhD-positions (12 PhD-positions 0.75 part-time at the salary grade E 13 TV-L and 3 PhD-positions full-time at the salary grade E 13 TV-L)
- 1 Scientific programmer position (PostDoc-position, full-time at the salary grade E 13 TV-L)

Applicants are asked to refer to one of the following topics:
* Project A1 “Upscale impact of diabatic processes from convective to near- hemispheric scale” (Supervisor: Prof. Volkmar Wirth, JGU)
* Project A2 “Structure formation on cloud scale and impact on larger scales” (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Peter Spichtinger, JGU)
* Project A4 “Evolution and predictability of storm structure during extratropical transition of tropical cyclones” (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Elmar Schömer and Dr. Michael Riemer, JGU)
* Project A7 "Visualization of coherence and variation in meteorological dynamics" (Supervisor: Dr. Filip Sadlo, University of Heidelberg) (A7,a)
* Project A7 "Visualization of coherence and variation in meteorological dynamics" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Westermann, TUM) (A7,b)
* Project B1 “Microphysical Uncertainties in Deep Convective Clouds and their Implications for Data Assimilation" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Corinna Hoose, KIT)
* Project B3 "Relative impact of surface and aerosol heterogeneities on the initiation of deep convection" (Supervisors: Dr. Christian Barthlott and Prof. Dr. Corinna Hoose, KIT) (B3,a)
* Project B3 "Relative impact of surface and aerosol heterogeneities on the initiation of deep convection" (Supervisor: Dr. Christian Keil, LMU) (B3,b)
* Project B4 "Radiative heating and cooling at cloud scale and its impact on dynamics" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Bernhard Mayer, LMU) (B4,a)
* Project B4 "Radiative heating and cooling at cloud scale and its impact on dynamics" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Bernhard Mayer, LMU) (B4,b)
* Project B5 "Data-driven ensemble visualization" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Westermann, TUM)
* Project C2 "Prediction of wet and dry periods of the West African monsoon" (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Andreas H. Fink, Prof Dr. Peter Knippertz, KIT)
* Project C3 "Multi-scale dynamics and predictability of Atlantic Subtropical Cyclones and Medicanes" (Supervisors: Prof Andreas H. Fink and Dr. Michael Riemer, KIT)
* Project C4 "Coupling of planetary-scale Rossby wave trains to local extremes in heat waves over Europe" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Volkmar Wirth, JGU) (C4,a)
* Project C4 "Coupling of planetary-scale Rossby wave trains to local extremes in heat waves over Europe" (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Andreas H. Fink, KIT) (C4,b)
* Project Z2 "Computing services" (Supervisors: Prof. Dr. George. C. Craig and Dr. Christian Keil, LMU)

Responsibilities and requirements depend on the PhD-project and are outlined on the website http://w2w.meteo.physik.uni-muenchen.de. The positions are fixed-term employment contracts until June 2019. Contracts are time-limited according to the Academic Fixed-Term Contract Law (WissZeitVG). The salary scale is TV-L E13. Employment in all positions shall begin as soon as possible.

Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal suitability. The W2W consortium strives to increase the proportion of women in research and specifically encourages females to apply for these positions.

Applications should be submitted online before July 31st 2015 using the application tool of the W2W consortium (visit the website http://w2w.meteo.physik.uni-muenchen.de for more information) and should include the following components:
- CV
- letter of motivation
- research interests
- a record of studies
- master and bachelor certificates including a transcript of records
- for the PostDoc-position, doctoral experience
- the degeee certificate
- contact information of two referees for letters of recommendation - an English language certificate
