IN APPLIED MATHEMATICS (f/m)
(75% time / limited for 3.5 years) | Job ID JU-16-65
The position is funded via the Germany Science Foundation Collaborative Research Center "Energy Transfers in
Atmosphere and Ocean" for a duration of 3.5 years. The successful applicant will work within the project
"Systematic multi-scale analysis and modelling of geophysical flows" specifically to extend variational balance
models to a broader range of physical regimes and geophysical flow equations together with Principal
Investigators Prof. Marcel Oliver (Jacobs University), Dr. Christian Franzke (Universität Hamburg), and Prof. Jens
Rademacher (Universität Bremen). Active participation in the general network activities of the Collaborative
Research Center is expected. The successful applicant will have the option to become a member of the Bremen
International Graduate School for Marine Sciences (GLOMAR) and complete a PhD degree at Jacobs University.
Applicants are expected to have a Master degree in mathematics or a related field with a good background or
outstanding research promise in applied analysis, theoretical fluid dynamics, and/or geophysical fluid dynamics.
The starting date is negotiable with a desired starting date of January 1, 2017 Employment is 75% time at the
level of Research Associate at a salary equivalent to public payscale.
Applications should arrive by December 7, 2016,
or until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a cover
letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the names and addresses of at
least three potential referees as a single PDF attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
is a collaborative project between Universität Hamburg and Universität Bremen funded by Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft for initially four years with possible extension for eight years. Further participating
institutions are Alfred-Wegener-Institut Bremerhaven, Jacobs University Bremen, Max-Planck-Institut für
Meteorologie Hamburg, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Leibniz-Institut für Ostseeforschung Warnemünde, and
Leibniz-Institut für Atmosphärenphysik, Kühlungsborn.
Physical oceanographers, meteorologists, and applied mathematicians are working together in the project
- to understand the energy transfers between the different dynamical regimes – small-scale turbulence, internal
gravity waves, and geostrophically balanced motion – in both atmosphere and ocean,
- to develop, to test, and to implement new and consistent parameterisations in models, and
- develop mathematical and numerical methods featuring consistent energetics. The Collaborative Research
Center TRR 181 aims to increase the number of women in research and teaching in this field and explicitly
encourages women to apply. For further information about TRR 181, please see http://www.trr-energytransfers.de/
