The Institute of coastal research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht invites applications for a three-year PhD position in the field of climate change detection and attribution within the Coordination of Storm Themes in collaboration with the University of Reading, United Kingdom. An atmospheric state-of-the-art general circulation model was spectrally nudged with global reanalysis data to provide a detailed description of the past atmospheric state for the last decades. Applying this set-up, the main task will be to simulate and analyze different extreme weather events such as heat waves, storms, or extreme precipitation events in the context of climate change. The overall project goal is to assess the impact of known anthropogenic changes in the climate system’s thermodynamic state. The place of employment is Geesthacht. more
