University Funds » International PhD Scholarships » Academic Project Scholarships

Leibniz Institute is looking for a PhD candidate who is highly motivated and has a very good master, Diploma or equivalent degree in physics, mathematics, oceanography, meteorology or equivalent.

The project focuses on the interaction between the tropical Indian and Atlantic Ocean with the El Niño / Southern Oscillation (ENSO) mode.

The ENSO mode is the most dominant mode of natural climate variability on interannual time scales.

The project shall make a contribution to a better understanding and prediction of the ENSO mode.

The study shall focus on model simulations with complex atmosphere-ocean general circulation models running on supercomputers, analysis of observed and simulated data and the development of simple conceptual models.

Candidates should be interested in working with model simulations, statistical analysis and should be interested in the development of simple theoretical models.

Requirements for the candidate are a very good physical/mathematical understanding, interest in programming and a high motivation for an independent and creative study.

The Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences is an equal opportunity employer and encourages female scientists and scientists with disabilities to apply.
