Dear all,

I'd like to bring the following advertisment of a position as a junior
research group leader in environmental physics to your attention.
Among other topics, research towards a "fundamental understanding of
isotope processes in the environment" is particularly invited.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested.

best regards,
Werner Aeschbach-Hertig

Junior Research Position in Environmental Physics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Heidelberg University
invites applications for a junior research group leader in
environmental physics. The position is open in the context of the
Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics, granted in the
framework of the "Excellence Initiative" of the German Federal and
State Governments. It should focus on questions of fundamental physics
in the field of environmental research with possible links to the
other areas of research in fundamental physics at Heidelberg
University, which encompass particle physics and cosmology, astronomy
and cosmic physics, quantum dynamics and complex quantum systems,
complex classical systems, and mathematical physics.

Applicants must hold a PhD and have a strong international research
record in a field of experimental or theoretical environmental
physics, focusing on fundamental aspects and complementing existing
expertise in Heidelberg. In particular, applications from the
following research fields are encouraged: Dynamics of nonlinear
environmental systems (e.g. climate system, hydrodynamics, chemical
instabilities), fundamental understanding of isotope processes in the
environment (e.g., clumped isotopes, mass-independent fractionation),
development of new concepts of modeling and/or new conceptual models
of environmental systems and processes. Other possible topics include
radiation transport, the atmospheres of extraterrestrial planets, new
spectroscopic techniques, or time series analysis.

The successful candidate will be supported in building up an
independent research group including associated doctoral positions
with significant startup funding available for an experimental group.
He or she is expected to supervise doctoral projects in environmental
physics and contribute to the Graduate School's teaching programme.
Heidelberg University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action
employer and encourages applications from female scientists.

The position is limited to 5 years. Applications including the usual
professional documentation and a brief statement of how the research
links to fundamental physics should be sent until 20th April 2013 to
the Spokesperson of the Graduate School, Prof. Dr. Markus Oberthaler,
Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics, Central Office, INF
226, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany.
