The Collaborative Research Center TRR 181 "Energy transfers in Atmosphere and Ocean" invites applications for a Research Associate position.

TRR 181 is a collaborative project between the Universities Hamburg and Bremen (Germany) funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft for initially four years with possible extension for eight years. Further participating institutions are Alfred-Wegener-Institut Bremerhaven, Jacobs University Bremen, Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie Hamburg, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Leibniz-Institut für Ostseeforschung Warnemünde, and Leibniz-Institut für Atmosphärenphysik, Kühlungsborn.

Physical oceanographer, meteorologists and applied mathematician are working together in the project

  1. to understand the energy transfers between the different dynamical regimes - smallscale turbulence, internal gravity waves and geostrophically balanced motion - in both atmosphere and ocean,
  2. to develop, to test, and to implement new and consistent parameterisations in models, and
  3. to develop mathematical and numerical methods featuring consistent energetics.
