Doctoral Position in Applied Mathematics (m/f)
Job ID JU/RG-16-65
(75% time / limited for 3.5 years)
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 trrjobs [at] jacobs-university.de.
I. 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,
II. to develop, to test, and to implement new and consistent parameterisations in models, and
III. 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.
