Postdoctoral Researcher

As a mid-size university with 250 professorships and 19.000 students, the University of Bremen is one of eleven universities having been successful in the German Excellence Initiative.
The Institute of Geography in the Department of Social Sciences, University of Bremen, invites applications for the following academic position (under the condition of job release), as soon as possible, until the end of the project on 30.04.2020:

Postdoctoral Researcher
EG 13 TV-L
full time position
Reference number: A85/17

The postdoc will work in the Climate Lab of the Institute of Geography (?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.geographie.uni-bremen.de%2Fen%2Fclimate-geography&module=jobs&id=119706" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">www.geographie.uni-bremen.de/en/climate-geography), in the project ‘Ice-Ocean Interaction of Peripheral Greenland Glaciers’, funded by the German Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) within the collaborative project cluster GReenland ice sheet/OCEan Interaction (GROCE).

The postdoc will develop, implement, and validate a parameterization for submarine melt and calving of peripheral glaciers in Greenland, within the framework of the Open Global Glacier Model (see oggm.org) . Based on this parameterization, the 20th century mass change of peripheral glaciers in Greenland will be reconstructed, and their 21st century mass change will be projected.

Close collaboration is expected with other glaciologists and oceanographers within the project cluster, e.g., to obtain data for calibration and validation, to distribute runoff estimates used as a boundary condition for other models, and to ensure consistency with ice-sheet model-based mass change estimates.

To apply successfully, you will:

  • have a PhD in a field of Earth science with proven, strong mathematical/physical background, or a PhD in physics/mathematics/informatics with previous experience in an Earth science;
  • have a publication record in peer-reviewed, international journals;
  • have demonstrated skills in scientific programming;
  • be fluent in English (equivalent to CEFR level C1).

It will be advantageous if you can demonstrate:

  • experience in glaciology and/or oceanography;
  • experience in applying for competitive, external funding;
  • working experience in a supercomputing environment;
  • working experience with Python;
  • proficiency in German.

The University of Bremen is an equal opportunity employer and aims particularly at increasing the share of female faculty members in research and teaching. Thus, qualified women are especially encouraged to apply. International applications and those from candidates with a migration background are explicitly appreciated. Candidates with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.

Please submit your application including the reference number, a letter of motivation, CV (with copies of certificates), and contact details of two referees until 4, May 2017 to:
