Junior Professorship in Physical Oceanography

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel, Germany, and GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel invite  applications for a Junior Professorship in Physical Oceanography (W1) with a starting date of October 1, 2014. The position is embedded at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel in the research unit Physical Oceanography which is part of the research division Ocean Circulation and Climate Dynamics.

The research interests of the applicant should be in process oriented observational physical
oceanography and related data/model analysis. A focus might include processes relevant  for ocean and climate dynamics, wind-driven and thermohaline circulation, water mass transformation, and air-sea interaction.

An interest in using modern observational methods, including shipboard, moored, and glider observations is expected as well as close collaboration within the research division and multidisciplinary cooperation with other research groups in Kiel. International collaboration within the EU and beyond is desired. A PhD in Physical Oceanography or a related field is required.

A successful applicant pursues outstanding and internationally recognized research in physical oceanography. It is expected that the applicant participates in the educational program of Climate Physics by offering practicals and a limited amount of teaching in physical oceanography at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Many of the lectures will be given in English. The willingness to learn German is expected.

The Junior Professors will initially be appointed for 3 years („Beamtenverhältnis auf Zeit”); after positive evaluation, the Junior Professor position will be extended by up to 3 additional years.
