1. Research Group Leader (m/f) in the area of Submesoscale Dynamics

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 http://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.

One scientific focus of the Institute of Coastal Research is the investigation of submesoscale dynamics in the coastal ocean. The Institute uses and develops a unique set of instruments and platforms ranging from a Zeppelin to speed boats and drones, as well as marine radar, towed-instrument chains, or in situ hyperspectral detectors allowing for very-high resolution observations on the order of meters and seconds. The institute has led several large submesoscale experiments (SubEx) off the coast of California and in the Baltic Sea (Expedition Clockwork Ocean, www.clockwork-ocean.com) and is using high resolution ROMS and LES models with the aim to understand the physical dynamics of submesoscale eddies and fronts and their interaction with biogeochemical and biological processes.

The tasks of the successful candidate will include:

· lead of the research group Submesoscale Dynamics

· planning and leading of international research expeditions

· guidance of students and postdoctoral researchers

· scientific analysis of submesoscale processes

· development of strategies for the synthesis of submesoscale measurements and modelling studies

· scientific publications and presentations

· acquisition of third-party funding

· active participation in the strategic development of the institute

· working as an integral part of a motivated multidisciplinary team within the institute and with external academic partners

Essential qualifications:

· a Doctorate degree in physical, biogeochemical or biological oceanography, engineering, or related discipline, e.g. meteorology

· very good knowledge of ocean dynamics, preferably of small-scale or submesoscale processes

· strong academic publication record

· excellent communication skills in English (written and oral)

· high degree of creativity and flexibility; ability to work under pressure

· ability to lead an interdisciplinary team with scientists, engineers, and technicians

Desirable qualifications:

· experience in ocean observations or modelling, preferably on small-scale coastal dynamics

· experience in instrument development

· proven record of acquiring third party funding

· experience in advising students or technicians

· desire to acquire solid communication skills in German

· several years of international research experience

6. Postdoctoral Fellowship: Reservoirs’ Energy and Water Exchange with Atmosphere (REWEX)

Program description

This project aims at better understanding of past and future water and energy exchange at manmade water reservoirs and surrounding lands. The project uniquely combines fieldwork with advanced mathematical modeling to obtain and convert information from a multi-sensor platform to a new hyper-resolution understanding of water and heat fluxes over manmade reservoirs. The project includes in-situ and remote sensing measurements along with model development for data processing, process representation and downscaling satellite measurements. For more information, please forward your enquires toAli Nazemi.

Academic qualifications required

The candidate should demonstrate vivid signs of research productivity along with solid track-record in hydrological and/or land-surface modeling, computer programming and statistical methods. Previous experience with fieldwork, remote sensing technology and Eddy Covariance techniques are asset but not essential. The fellow should have a valid driver licence and should be able to travel in North America to attend workshops, meetings and conferences.

Eligibility requirements

· Applicants must not currently hold a postdoctoral appointment at Concordia

· Priority will be given to postdoctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD from another university although in exceptional cases Concordia graduates may be considered

· Applicants must adhere to the postdoctoral fellow eligibility criteria outlined inConcordia University’s Postdoctoral Policy
