The Division of Microwave Physics at the Institute of Applied Physics

University of Bern (Switzerland) invites applications for the position of

Postdoc or Junior group leader in Atmospheric Physics / Atmospheric

Radiometry (2-6 years)

The Division of Microwave Physics is one of the world leading institutions
in the area of radiometry of

the atmosphere in the microwave and submillimeter wave range (5 GHz - 1.2
THz). A range of inhouse

instruments is developed and used to measure water (vapor, liquid, ice),
trace gases (O3) and

wind, and to study related processes in the lower, middle and upper
atmosphere. The Division of

MW Physics has a long tradition of international collaborations

The position will start with a 2-years contract, extendable up to 6 years
and comes with the

possibility of promotion to Oberassistent (habilitation, non-tenure track).

The successful candidate has a demonstrated track record in atmospheric
physics/dynamics with a

focus on observations and/or numerical simulation of (lower, middle and
upper) atmospheric

processes related to water phases, clouds, ozone, radiative transfer or
wind. The candidate will

develop a research agenda making use of the instruments and very rich data
archives available inhouse

(e.g., TROWARA, TEMPERA, GROMOS) and internationally (e.g. NASA/GSFC

EUMETSAT and ESA). Meso-scale phenomena and processes, long-term trends, and

Upper-Air Essential Climate Variables ECV/cloud properties (water ice path,
ice clouds) are of

particular interest. The candidate will establish strong collaborations
within the Division of

Microwave Physics and with research groups of the Oeschger Centre for
Climate Change Research,

University of Bern www.oeschger.unibe.ch (GCM/RCM modeling, atmospheric

climatology, remote sensing and Climate Physics).

The candidate is expected to apply successfully for extramural grants, to
gain experience with

supervising (BSc and MSc), co-supervising (PhD) and, if desired, teaching,
and to develop intellectual

independency and scientific networks. The candidate will benefit from the
scheme for the promotion

of Young Scientists at the Oeschger Centre.

Salary range: SFr 88'000.- to 100'000.-/year (depending on experience)

The position is available from now on, (for 2 years, extendable up to 6
years, non-tenure track)

Applications should be submitted not later than 31.10.2018. Review of
applications continues until

the position is filled. Applications of women are particularly encouraged.

Please direct informal inquiries either to Dr. Axel Murk
(axel.murk at iap.unibe.ch) or to Prof. Dr.

Martin Frenz (martin.frenz at iap.unibe.ch). Applications (ONE pdf with letter
of motivation, CV, List of

Publications/Output, Certificate of PhD, research outline of max. 2 pages,
addresses of three

referees) should be sent to:

Prof. Dr. Martin Frenz

Institute of Applied Physics, University of Bern; Sidlerstrasse 5, 3012
