Universität Hamburg and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht are dedicated to 
Equal opportunity and family-friendly policies are a matter of course. We 
also treasure cultural
diversity, communication and interaction among people from different 
backgrounds and with
different lifestyles.

In a joint appointment process with the Universität Hamburg (School of 
Mathematics, Informatics
and Natural Sciences), the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) is seeking 
to fill the position of a


commencing as soon as possible, ref. code 2195/W3. The place of employment 
is Geesthacht.

Applicants are expected to have international research experience as well 
as a successful track
record in acquiring external funding and carrying out externally-funded 
projects. The University
and HZG place particular emphasis on the quality of teaching and therefore 
request applicants
to provide details of both their teaching experience and objectives.
Universität Hamburg and HZG seek to increase the proportion of women in 
teaching and
research. We therefore explicitly encourage qualified female academics to 
apply. Qualified
female applicants receive preference in the application process.

With a total of 180 employees, the Institute of Coastal Research of the 
HZG carries out research
on the geophysical and biogeochemical processes of coastal ocean and the 
influence of anthropogenic
changes. (http://www.hzg.de/institute/coastal_research/index.html.en)

We are looking for an excellent researcher and leader in coastal sciences 
to head the Institute of
Coastal Research jointly with two colleagues. He/She will be responsible 
for the division “System
Analysis and Modelling”.

The scientific focus of this division is on modelling and analysis of 
long-term regional variability,
trends and scenarios. The top priority is the application of models to 
analyse and understand
the complex geophysical processes in the coastal regions with a special 
emphasis on longterm
changes associated with regional climate and anthropogenic influences. 
with social science groups is encouraged. The new director of the 
Institute will continue this
successful and unique avenue of research of the entire Institute of 
Coastal Research at the
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht to further develop HZG’s profile into a 
centre of excellence for
integrated numerical modelling of coastal regions. The additional research 
topics of the other
two departments of the institute, namely “Operational Systems” and 
“Biogeochemistry of
Coastal Seas”, should therefore be included in modelling and simulation.

The Institute for Coastal Research at HZG and the Center of Earth System 
Sciences and
Sustainability (CEN) at Universität Hamburg strive to further intensify 
their cooperation.
Therefore a close cooperation with CEN is expected.

The successful candidate will be an internationally recognized scientist, 

• is an expert in the discipline of geophysics and has an excellent 
process-based understanding
  of the complex interdisciplinary connections in the coastal regions
• can apply and develop numerical models (e. g. earth system models) and 
explore scenarios for
  the development of coastal regions
• is able to collaborate with related natural and socio-economic sciences
• has extensive experience in research, teaching and in a leading 
management position
• has an excellent publication record

The position includes lectures for two hours per week at the Universität 

Academic qualifications and additional requirements as specified in § 15 
of the Hamburg Higher
Education Act. Several years of research activity abroad as well as a 
trans-disciplinary and socioeconomic
research interest are desired.

It is expected that the applicant will maintain, or further develop, the 
already existing climate
and coastal research cooperations with various institutions in Northern 
Germany and abroad.

HZG is partner of the German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ). The 
candidate is encouraged to
use this scientific resource for his own scientific projects.
Qualified disabled candidates receive preference in the application 
For detailed information, please contact the Scientific Director of the 
Geesthacht, Prof. Wolfgang Kaysser (kaysser at hzg.de).

The deadline for applications is 19 June 2014. Please submit your 
including the standard documents and ref. code 2195/W3 to:

An den Präsidenten der Universität Hamburg, Organisationsreferat,
Ausschreibungsstelle, Mittelweg 177, 20148 Hamburg or via email to
