Hydrodynamic Modeller Position (m/f)

The Institute of Coastal Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht hosts a number of highly motivated and experienced researchers in the field of numerical modeling of regional and coastal circulation, surface waves, sediment transport, biogeochemistry, data assimilation and remote sensing. We plan to enlarge our hydrodynamic modeling team and invite applications for a hydrodynamic modeller position (m/f). We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced scientist and acknowledged expert in numerical modeling of the coupled shelf-ocean system.

This is a fixed-term position for 3 years with a possibility of an extension, starting as soon as possible. The place of employment is Geesthacht.

Your tasks:

  • model development to resolve and understand the feedbacks in the coupled shelf-ocean system
  • further development of modern hydrodynamic numerical models (including unstructured grid models such as ICON or SCHISM, European community models such as NEMO)
  • conduct research about the physical-biological shelf-ocean coupling and climate and anthropogenic system drivers on various time scales
  • project applications and participation in national and international projects
  • networking with national and international modeling communities
  • supervising of master and PhD students, collaboration with postdoctoral researchers
  • publication in relevant scientific journals
  • presenting the research at international conferences and committees

Profile of qualifications:

  • a university degree in Physics, Mathematics, Physical Oceanography, Atmospheric Science, Environmental Science, or related disciplines and holds a relevant PhD
  • outstanding expertise in hydrodynamics and numerical modeling
  • long standing experience in model development including development and implementation of numerical methods and adaptive computational mesh refinement
  • experience in modeling waves, sediment transport and ecosystem dynamics
  • documented expertise in model application for coupled shelf-ocean systems
  • excellent programming skills und long-standing FORTRAN experience
  • record in employing High Performance Computing and parallelization of ocean models
  • skills and experience in data assimilation
  • relevant publications in peer reviewed scientific literature
  • excellent command of English
  • ability and experience to work in an inter- and transdisciplinary environment
  • experience in experimental oceanography enabling understanding and close collaboration with experimentalists at the Institute of Coastal Research is an advantage
Closing date for applications is December 28th, 2016
