PhD position “Digital Ice-Cores; Paleo-Climate reconstruction using Bayesian modeling” (m/f/d)

Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research
Closing date: 23 September 2022

The Alfred-Wegener-Institut (AWI) offers a fully funded PhD position on ice-core based climate reconstructions. AWI is looking for candidates from math/ computer sciences or physics who are interested in advancing temperature reconstructions from ice-cores using Bayesian modeling.

In the framework of the MARDATA graduate program (, the position will be jointly supervised by an expert in computer science/numeric/inference (Prof. Peter Zaspel, Jacobs University Bremen) and an expert in climate/ice-core sciences (Prof. Thomas Laepple, AWI).
