The Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research at Karlsruhe 
Institute of Technology in Germany invites applications for two 
positions for postdoctoral researchers in the field of numerical cloud 

(1) Within the newly established DFG Transregional Collaborative 
Research Centre "Waves 2 Weather" ( 
www.uni-muenchen.de/wavestoweather/), 1 postdoctoral researcher in the 
project "Microphysical Uncertainties in Deep Convective Clouds and their 
Implications for Data Assimilation (B1)". The position is available 
until June 2019, starting as soon as possible. The successful candidate 
will conduct hindcast simulations of selected severe convective events, 
with a systematic variation of the most important microphysical 
parameters and initial conditions to span an ensemble. The aim of this 
project is to assess the sensitivity of convective cloud properties 
(cloud phase, hail, ...) to perturbations under real conditions, 
constrained by observations from different networks (radar, satellite, 
surface stations). In these simulations, it is expected that dynamical 
as well as microphysical feedbacks complicate the effects of 
microphysical perturbations on macrophysical cloud properties. The tool 
for this project will be the COSMO model, which will be employed in 
convection-resolving grid spacing and in different setups, including 
versions with a double-moment cloud scheme and parameterizations of 
aerosol-cloud interactions within COSMO-ART. Please send applications 
for this position to Dr. Michael Kunz (kunz at kit.edu), Dr. Bernhard Vogel 
(bernhard.vogel at kit.edu) and Prof. Dr. Corinna Hoose 
(corinna.hoose at kit.edu).

(2) Within the BMBF-funded research initiative "High Definition Clouds 
and Precipitation for Climate Prediction" (http://www.hdcp2.eu/), 1 
postdoctoral researcher in the subproject "Response of Mixed-Phase 
Clouds to Aerosol Perturbations". This position will be available from 1 
April 2016 for 3 years, subject to final funding approval. The 
successful candidate will evaluate ice nucleation processes and 
thermodynamic phase distributions in large-domain simulations with the 
ICON-LES model and test alternative microphysical parameterizations for 
this model. Please send expressions of interest for this position to 
Prof. Dr. Corinna Hoose (corinna.hoose at kit.edu).

We are looking for highly motivated, independent candidates, ideally 
with previous experience in atmospheric modelling. We offer a dynamic 
work environment at one of Germany's foremost research institutions for 
natural science and technology (read more at http://www.kit.edu) with 
attractive programs for young researchers (http://www.khys.kit.edu) and 
payment according to TV-L 13.

Review of applications for both positions is ongoing and will continue 
until the positions are filled.

I'm happy to answer any questions related to these openings.
Best regards,
Corinna Hoose
