Kiel University and GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel intend
to attract more qualified women for professorships. The Faculty of
Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Kiel University, Germany, and GEOMAR
Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel jointly invite applications for
the following position to be filled as soon as possible:

Junior Professorship (W1) in
Theoretical Physical Oceanography

which is initially appointed for 3 years („Beamtenverhältnis auf Zeit”).
After positive evaluation, the position will be extended by up to 3

following fields:

– theory of the large-scale ocean circulation and its variability
– ocean mixing associated with mesoscale or submesoscale eddies
and its parameterisation for use in ocean models
– development and implementation of inverse methods to aid
interpretation of observational datasets
– dynamical concepts for data assimilation

The junior professorship will thematically and methodically enhance the
existing capacity of the research unit. It shall foster and expand the
