#1 Post by jsaynisch » Wed Aug 19, 2015 1:48 pm

Section 1.3 “Earth System-Modelling” at GFZ searches for a PhD candidate to work in the project “Detectability of non-tidal ocean signals in Earth's magnetic field (OceanMag)”. The project is part of the DFG priority programme “Study of Earth system dynamics with a constellation of potential field missions” (SPP 1788), which is designed around the ESA multi-satellite mission SWARM. The focus of OceanMag is the interpretation, combination and comparison of ocean generated magnetic signals by employing numerical global ocean circulation models.

Tasks:
numerical modelling of large scale ocean dynamics
simulation and analysis of ocean induced magnetic field variations
advanced comparative analyses of model simulations and SWARM observations
data assimilation

Qualifications:
Master’s degree (or equivalent) in physics, mathematics or geosciences
strong mathematical and/or physical background
skills in programming languages and statistical software are an asset
good English skills
