Postdoc in the field of geoscientific modelling and data analysis

Job Description (geoscientific modelling and data analysis):

In our Institute for Coastal Systems – Analysis and Modelling we are looking for a postdoctoral esearcher in the field of geoscientific modelling and data analysis to start as soon as possible – limited – for a period of 3 years.

Within the framework of the BMBF-funded project “TECHNOLOGIEPLATTFORM H2MARE” and the project “MarEns”, meteomarine data sets are needed to determine security risks and climate change impacts. The already existing data sets will be extended by ensemble members that include both existing and future offshore wind farms in their interaction with the atmosphere and the ocean.

Your task in this context will be to apply and extend the existing Hereon model system GCOAST to account for the influences of wind farms. In this application, the GCOAST system includes the regional climate models COSMO-CLM or ICON-CLM and the regional ocean model NEMO. Further information about GCOAST can be found on the website

Furthermore, your tasks will include developing strategies with project partners from industry and commerce to use the results of the model simulations synergetically with the industrial measurement data in order to make statements on logistical and safety-relevant questions in the offshore operation of technical plants. The cooperation in the project requires the processing of large amounts of data, which should be usable in applications from different disciplines.

Equality of opportunity is an important part of our personnel policy. We would therefore strongly encourage qualified women to apply for the position.
