Öffentliche Ausschreibung

The University of Bremen is offering – under the condition of job release – at the earliest possible date until 30.6.2024 a full time position for a

Postdoctoral Researcher (f/m/d)
German federal pay scale E13 TV-L (100 %)

in the framework of the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre TRR 181 “Energy Transfers in Atmosphere and Ocean” of the DFG, project M2: „Systematic Multi-Scale Modelling and Analysis for Geophysical Flows“. The position is located at the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM) and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bremen.



Large scale geophysical climate models require subgrid modeling to compensate lack of resolution in measurements as well as computing power for long term simulations. The aim of the project is to systematically investigate stochastic impacts on energy balance and the development of energy consistent subgrid models in geophysical flows.

The successful candidate (f/m/d) has the background required to perform mathematical analysis or numerics for stochastic differential equations in the sense of the project, and is highly interested in implications for and applications to climate modeling. You work in the applied analysis group of Prof. Jens Rademacher at the department of mathematics as member of the TRR181 and the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM). The project will be conducted in collaboration with Prof. Jörn Behrens (University of Hamburg) and Prof. Marcel Oliver (Jacobs University Bremen).

You will benefit from membership in the graduate school ENERGY at the collaborative research center TRR181, which is distributed over three leading locations of climate research in Germany and offers a course and mentoring program including career development. The TRR181 also supports international conference and research visits.


  • an excellent doctoral thesis (at a university) with strong mathematical parts,
  • solid background in stochastic differential equations and wave processes,
  • strong interest in fluid dynamics and climate modeling,
  • candidates (f/m/d) should be fluent in English, strong scientific writers and enjoy an international and interdisciplinary environment.

Allgemeine Hinweise
