About the Project
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
* to develop mathematical and numerical methods featuring consistent energetics.
The goal are energetically more consistent climate models for advanced climate predictions.
The position is associated with sub-project M5 “Reducing spurious mixing and energetic inconsistencies in realistic ocean-modelling applications” to work on advanced numerical techniques aimed at improved preservation of the layer structure of water density in an unstructured-mesh ocean model in climate-relevant simulations (first advisor Prof. Sergey Danilov, Alfred Wegener Institute and Jacobs University).
Successful applicants will have the option to become members of the Bremen International Graduate School for Marine Sciences (GLOMAR) and complete a PhD degree at Jacobs University.
Candidates will collaborate with partner institutions within the TRR 181, in particular the Alfred Wegener Institute Bremerhaven, and participate actively in the general network activities of the Collaborative Research Center.
Applicants are expected to have a Master degree in Mathematics, Physics or a related field with a good background and outstanding research promise in theoretical fluid dynamics, geophysical fluid dynamics, partial differential equations, and/or numerical analysis.
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.
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.
