temporary for 3 years
According to the German TVöD 13
DLR and the Friedrich-Schiller-University (FSU) Jena in collaboration with the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry established a research group on Climate Informatics at the new DLR Institute for Data Science in Jena, Germany. Climate Informatics is a challenging and promising research field where a concentrated effort will have a high impact both to advance science and to address climate change topics of critical importance for the society. The group combines innovative data science methods from different fields (machine learning, causal inference, nonlinear dynamics) and closely works with experts in the climate sciences.
Your task will be to develop data science methods for the detection of abrupt climate transitions and extreme events from large-scale spatio-temporal climate datasets. The core methodological expertise in the group includes graphical models, causal inference, nonlinear time series analysis, and deep learning. But the methods you choose are flexible and open for your ideas!
The position will consider the following research tasks:
To support your international research experience, the position has a generous travel budget for conferences and extended research stays. We have collaborators at Imperial College London, Oxford, Carnegie Mellon University, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and California Institute of Technology, among others.
The position allows to obtain a PhD degree at a collaborating university. World-class research requires diverse teams and we especially welcome female applicants that want to develop their career in our inspiring atmosphere.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives.
Our human resources policy puts great value on a healthy work-life balance as well as equal opportunities for men and women.
Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
