At the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, Department of Hydro Sciences, Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology, the Chair of Meteorology offers a project position as
Research Associate (m/f/x)
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
starting at the earliest possible date, funded by the DFG project "Investigations of ABL dynamics and structure over heterogeneous surfaces with turbulence-resolving simulations (LES)". The position comprises 75% of the full-time weekly hours and is limited to 48 months. The period of employment is governed by § 2 (2) the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG).
This project is part of the DFG research unit Land-Atmosphere Feedback Initiative (LAFI, FOR 5639). LAFI is an interdisciplinary consortium of researchers from atmospheric, agricultural, and soil sciences as well as from bio-geo-physics, hydrology, and neuroinformatics proposing a novel combination of advanced research methods. The overarching goal of LAFI is to understand and quantify land-atmosphere feedbacks via unique synergistic observations and model simulations from the micro-gamma (≈ 2 m) to the meso-gamma (≈ 2 km) scales across diurnal to seasonal time scales.
