Postdoc research positions, paleoclimate modeling - Bremen, Germany

There are three postdoctoral positions in the field of ice-sheet and paleoclimate modeling available at MARUM - Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, at the University of Bremen, Germany.

Logistics

The positions are in the PalMod project. All three positions have an earliest starting date of 1 October 2019, and a fixed term of three years. The salary corresponds to 100% TV-L E13. The researchers in these three positions will collaborate closely.

Description

The goal of the PalMod project is to gain a deeper understanding of climate-system dynamics and variability during the last glacial cycle. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Science (BMBF).

For the second funding phase, PalMod-II, from 2019 to 2022, MARUM at the University of Bremen - under the condition of the grant by the funding party - invites applications for three postdoctoral positions in the fields of ice-sheet and paleoclimate modeling.
