Research Group Leader (m/f) In the area of Submesoscale Dynamics

Date 12.02.2018
Administration Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

One scientific focus of the Institute of Coastal Research is the investigation of submesoscale dynamics in the coastal ocean. The Institute uses and develops a unique set of instruments and platforms ranging from a Zeppelin to speed boats and drones, as well as marine radar, towed-instrument chains, or in situ hyperspectral detectors allowing for very-high resolution observations on the order of meters and seconds. The institute has led several large submesoscale experiments (SubEx) off the coast of California and in the Baltic Sea (Expedition Clockwork Ocean, www.clockwork-ocean.com) and is using high resolution ROMS and LES models with the aim to understand the physical dynamics of submesoscale eddies and fronts and their interaction with biogeochemical and biological processes.

We invite applications for the Leader (m/f) of the research group Submesoscale Dynamics at the Institute of Coastal Research with preferred starting date on June 1, 2018. The position is initially limited to five years.
