Scientist position (m/f/d) for ocean dynamics and data science
GEOMAR, Kiel, Germany
Closing date: 5 December 2023
The Ocean Dynamics research unit at GEOMAR (Kiel, Germany) has an open Research Scientist position for ocean dynamics and data science for 3 years.
Scientific foci of the working group are, among others, i) the circulation in the Atlantic, Pacific, and the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, ii) the global relevance of oceanic eddies, turbulence, and upwelling, iii) the interaction of different physical processes und their role in ocean mixing, iv) scale interactions between ocean and atmosphere, and v) the role of the oceans in the climate system.
The research scientist will contribute to the analysis and interpretation of ocean models and observational data. This necessitates, among other things, the development and application of novel diagnostic methods, including but not restricted to advanced machine learning algorithms. One of the main challenges is the efficient and potentially automatized use and analysis of large amounts of data to gain further understanding of the physical processes, the oceans and the climate system in general. The research scientist will support the work as well as develop and implement own research ideas within a larger, interdisciplinary and team-oriented group.
