Dear colleagues,

the Atmospheric Modelling group (Prof. Yaping Shao) at the Institute for
Geophysics and Meteorology at the University of Cologne (Germany) is
offering a PhD position for 3 years starting in Fall 2016, within the
Collaborative Research Center SFB1211 “Earth – Evolution at the Dry Limit”.
The project title is “Development of an Aeolian-Biogenic model”.

We offer a productive and interdisciplinary working atmosphere including
several possibilities for career development. The salary is based on the
German E13 TV-L scale (75% time position) if terms and conditions under
collective bargaining law are fulfilled.

Job description: The doctoral candidate will develop a module for
quantifying the aeolian-biogenic interactions. Of particular importance is
to quantify the strength and thickness of the biogenic crust, and to derive
adequate parameterizations of these quantities as a function of
environmental control parameters. At the same time the inhibition of
aeolian erosion by the presence of crusts, as well as the effects of dust
erosion and deposition on the formation of crusts will be considered. All
these ingredients will be cast in a set of partial differential equations.
The simulations will be extensively compared against observations from the
literature and from the field and remote sensing campaigns within SFB 1211.

Requirements: We expect strong interest in atmospheric science with
specialization in atmospheric and surface modeling. Applicants should have
a Master-of-Science-equivalent university degree in meteorology,
geophysics, physics or mathematics. Experience in scientific programming,
preferably in a UNIX/LINUX environment, and knowledge in computational
modelling is highly desirable. Candidates must possess excellent
communication skills both in written and spoken English.

Applications: Interested candidates should send a CV; a cover letter
describing background, training and research interests; certificates; and
the contact information of two referees as a single PDF to meteo-jobs at uni‐
koeln.de. Please clearly indicate which position you apply for. Review of
applications will begin immediately and continue until September 30, 2016.
