Perhaps of interest to some of you:

In the research group Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate at the 
Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences of the 
Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-University Frankfurt there is a vacancy for a

Research Associate (Akademische/r Rat/Rätin auf Zeit)

The initial appointment will be for three years.

Applicants should hold a PhD in meteorology, physics, applied 
mathematics, fluid dynamics, astronomy or a related field. Expected is a 
strong background in theory and/or modeling and a capability for 
research in atmosphere dynamics.  Desirable would be experience in the 
theory of stochastic dynamical systems and/or with large fluid-dynamical 
codes. The specific research field shall be theory and modelling of 
stochastic/deterministic mesoscale and sub-mesoscale wave dynamics and 
its interaction with larger-scale systems. The ultimate objective is the 
improvement of the description of gravity waves in weather and climate 

The post offers the opportunity for further scientific qualification 
within the German system (Habilitation). Within this framework a modest 
participation in teaching in the meteorology program and in attracting 
external funding is expected. The research activity is to be embedded 
both in a national research initiative (DFG research unit) on the 
multi-scale dynamics of gravity waves, and in the corresponding 
international scientific community.

Some information on the research group can be found under 
Its focus is on scale interactions in atmosphere dynamics, with 
applications to large-scale low-frequency variability and to 
gravity-wave dynamics. Middle-atmosphere dynamics is another field of 
work. Techniques used include multi-scale asymptotics, stochastic 
methods, and numerical simulation. Inquiries should be addressed to 
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz (achatz at iau.uni-frankfurt.de).

Applications with the usual documents (CV, diplomas, and a list of 
publications) should be sent by June 15, 2014 to Prof. Dr. Ulrich 
Achatz, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Institut für 
Atmosphäre und Umwelt, Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, 
Germany. Applications will be considered beyond this date until the post 
has been filled.
