Deadline: March 15, 2020

The Ocean Dynamics research unit at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research is advertising for a full time postdoctoral research position to investigate Southern Ocean and eddy mixing processes in a warming climate. The position will focus on understanding the role of mesoscale eddies in (i) redistribution of meltwater, (ii) uptake of heat and trace gases, and (iii) propagation of climate signals across fronts in the Southern Ocean. This position, which is funded to January 31st, 2023, is a part of the overarching BMBF-funded project PalMod II: From the Last Interglacial to the Anthropocene – Modeling a Complete Glacial Cycle.

The successful candidate will be responsible for:

  • running numerical experiments with an established global climate model 
  • configuring a regionally refined Southern Ocean
  • conducting original research with this model analyzing large data sets
  • interpreting and publishing the research in international journals

Interested individuals should send your application via e-mail with "PalMod2 ocean eddies” in the subject line not later than March 15, 2020 to bewerbungatgeomar [dot] de (bewerbungatgeomar [dot] de).
