CALLING ALL FUTURE EXPERTS IN BUILDING PHYSICS OF CITIES! AT FRAUNHOFER MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TALENTS BY JOINING OUR TEAM.POSTS ARE IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE!

Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas.

This announcement concerns a job opening in the framework of a recently launched project on urban physics. The project’s purpose is to develop an approach and a platform that can predict the environmental impact of the built environment. The ultimate outcome of the project will be a decision support platform supported by physics-based city modeling. In particular, you will be researching the modeling of microclimate, focusing on reducing energy consumption in buildings and mitigating urban heat island effects in major cities in Europe and Asia

Description

Tasks:
  • Work in a collaborative environment while showing initiative and autonomy
  • Quickly become a reference point in the project for meso- or microscale modeling of urban climate
  • Plan, implement and maintain outdoor climate monitoring systems
  • Analyze, visualize and interpret large spatio-temporal data files produced by measurement, remote sensing or numerical simulation
  • Publish research results in leading journals, present results at national and international conferences, and work with industry to test and evaluate research results
  • Contribute to writing proposals, securing funding and leading research projects and tasks

Requirements

What we expect from you
Required:
  • A completed university degree in Meteorology, Geographic Sciences, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical / Thermal Engineering, or a related field
  • Doctorate preferred, MSc with several years of relevant experience will also be considered
  • Good knowledge of advanced scientific programming (e.g., Python, Fortran, C / C++, R, MATLAB /Simulink)
  • A sound understanding of the basic physics of flow and turbulence, thermodynamics and statistics, preferably applied to the urban climate and/or the built environment
  • Fluency in verbal and written English


Desired:
  • Experience in mesoscale (especially WRF including UCM) and microscale (e.g., ENVI-met or PALM-4U) climate modeling software as well as GIS software (e.g., QGIS)
  • Knowledge of the Linux operating system and of high-performance computing
  • Prior publications in peer-reviewed journals


The applicant should provide a comprehensive CV including the contact details of at least two references (one of whom must be the thesis supervisor), as well as a cover letter addressing the main requirements of the position.
