The position is available at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Potsdam (Germany) and is part of collaborative work with the Freie Universit" at Berlin, Imperial College London, and the CWI Amsterdam.
The group has developed novel numerical methods based on Lagrangian and semi-Lagrangian formulations of atmospheric fluid dynamics.
These methods display excellent conservation properties, which are of fundamental importance to long term predictability.
The multi-scale aspect of atmospheric dynamics is treated by a regularization approach jointly developed with the UK Met Office.
The successful applicant will be part of the theoretical and practical development of these methods into a fully three dimensional simulation methodology for atmospheric circulation.
Desirable prerequisites are
The position (BAT IIa-O equivalent) is initially for 2 year period with the possibility of extension for an additional 2 years.
