Scientists (m/f) in the research project Digital Earth
Code No. 2018/K 1
The place of employment is Geesthacht, Germany.
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), centre for materials and coastal research, is located near Hamburg and in Teltow, near Berlin.
You can find more information at www.hzg.de. The Institute of Coastal Research investigates
the physical and biogeochemical dynamics of the coastal ocean and the impact of anthropogenic influences on the natural state.
The advancement of Earth system understanding critically depends on the better integration of data and knowledge from different earth science disciplines.
In the Helmholtz Association project Digital Earth, natural and data scientists work closely together to gain new insights from the ever-growing amount and
variety of research data using novel concepts and methods. They are looking for solutions, in particular with regard to the processing of fast-growing,
multi-parameter data through employing existing Data Science methods, adapting new algorithms and developing digital workflows tailored to specific scientific
needs. Digital Earth integrates the competences of all eight Helmholtz Centers in the research field Earth and Environment. More information about the project
can be found at www.digitalearth.geomar.de.
We invite applications for two Scientist positions (m/f) in the research project Digital Earth of the Helmholtz Association’s Earth
and Environment research field. The positions are to be filled as soon as possible and are initially limited to three years.
Areas of responsibilities:
develop innovative digital workflows in order to employ new data science methods for data exploration such as deep learning algorithms and visualisation of 4-dimensional earth system data in support to facilitated data interpretation
develop an evaluation framework and monitoring process for Digital Earth workflows and outputs for scientific use in close cooperation with the other Helmholtz Earth and Environment Centers, and for practical applications in risk analyses and vulnerability assessments
representation of the Institute of Coastal Research at the HZG and Digital Earth at scientific conferences, workshops and meetings, scientific and technical publications in international peer-reviewed research journals
develop methods for pattern recognition in large model data sets like 4D atmospheric chemistry transport model results
develop a simplified atmospheric chemistry model for studying multiple emission scenarios, in particular effects of methane emissions on ozone formation
develop methods for pattern recognition in large model data sets like 4D ocean general circulation model results and connect them to diverse observational data sets
support development of visualization and visual analysis tools
a university degree in mathematics, computer science, informatics, oceanography, physics, meteorology or other related discipline in natural sciences and earth science
excellent knowledge of at least one programming language such as C, R, Fortran, Java or Python as well as working with Linux/Unix computer environments
experience in evaluation of scientific workflows and outcomes
sound knowledge of English and proficiency in German
good communication skills
willingness to work in an international and interdisciplinary team at the Institute of Coastal Research
a record of peer reviewed publications in order to demonstrate the skill to publish the work in scientific journals
knowledge and experiences in data science methods and their application in earth system science
experience in the analysis of large 4-dimensional observational and/or model data sets
experience in integrating observation and modelling data from different disciplines and earth compartments across different spatial scales
multinational work environment with over 900 colleagues from more than 50 nations
extensive options of vocational training (for instance, expert seminars, language courses or leadership seminars)
flexible working hours and various models to ensure the compatibility of family and career
excellent infrastructure, including a scientific in-house library as well as modern work spaces
an appropriate salary related to the German public tariff (TV-AVH) plus the usual social benefits for the public employment sector
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is an equal opportunity employer and particularly strives to increase the percentage of women in the science sector.
Severely disabled persons with equal qualifications will be considered preferentially.
Geesthacht is located 35 km southeast of Hamburg in Northern Germany. Its location combines proximity to Germany’s second largest city and its cultural
offerings with easy access to numerous outdoor activities in a beautiful setting. We are a family-friendly employer and operate our own kindergarten on campus.
Please send your application indicating job offer code no. 2018/K 1 including your CV, a list of publications, description of research
experience and goals, and a list of up to three references to firstname.lastname@example.org
