Text: The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI M) is a multidisciplinary center for climate and Earth system research located in Hamburg, Germany. It is one of the premier climate science research institutes in the world. Located in the heart of one of Europe s most livable and vibrant cities it provides a highly international and interdisciplinary environment for conducting scientific research as well as access to state of the art scientific facilities. The MPI M is now opening two (3+1 year) positions for Two Postdoctoral Scientists (f/m/ W 094 to support the development and scientific exploitation of a new generation of Storm Resolving (km scale) Earth System Models (SR ESMs). The positions are funded with partial support from t he H2020 projects NextGEMS Next Generation Earth Modelling Systems (GA 101003470; 2021 2025), and CONSTRAIN (GA 820829) and will allow the successful applicant to work on the most scientifically and technically ambitious simulations systems imaginable. The objective of the positions is to evaluate and improve the repr esentation of the coupled climate system using kilometer scale coupled models. These positions emphasize the representation of precipitating convective systems and their interaction with the underlying ocean. The successful applicant will: · Analyz e the representation of cloud and convective processes in this new class of climate models. · Design and carry out stand alone atmosphere and coupled ocean atmosphere experiments testing physical representations of various processes. · Implement novel modelling concepts into the numerical framework of ICON. · Support the ICON model and infrastructure (e. output logging) development. · Contribute to project and sub task coordination. · Disseminate the results through publications in peer reviewed journals, presentations at conferences, or through social medi a, video blogs, etc. As a scientific member of the MPI M the applicant will be afforded a wealth of opportunities to: be involved in student advising; contribute to and initiate independe nt projects, including planned field studies of tropical convection over the Atlantic; participate in soft skill and various personal development trainings. Requirements: To qualify for the open positions candidates must possess: · a PhD in the mathematical or physical sciences; · excellent programming skills; · a track record of scientific accomplishment as documented by at least one first authored scientific publication Additional qualifications that will be considered in evaluating potential candidates include: ·  disciplinarydisciplinary expertiseexpertise (climate,(climate, precipitatingprecipitating coconvection,nvection, airair--seasea interaction)interaction) ·  modelling,modelling, oror modelmodel developmentdevelopment experience.experience. ·  organizationorganization andand communicationcommunication skillsskills ·  personalpersonal motivationmotivation andand interestinterest inin thethe positionposition Selection Selection criteria:criteria: A A electionelection panelpanel willwill bebe establishedestablished toto evaluateevaluate thethe qualifications,qualifications, thethe experienceexperience andand thethe abilityability ofof thethe candidatescandidates toto fulfilfulfilll thethe responsibilitiesresponsibilities asas outlinedoutlined above.above.
