The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Kiel University, Germany and GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel jointly invite applications for a limited term W 2-Professorship (six years) tenure track in Theoretical Oceanography to start at the earliest possible time

The Professorship is based at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and assigned to the Research Unit ‘Ocean Dynamics’ within the Department ‘Ocean Circulation and Climate Dynamics’.

The professor will represent the fields oceanography and climate dynamics in research and teaching.

We are seeking a candidate with an excellent and international research profile in physical oceanography and climate dynamics. Applicants shall be dynamic and team players, and bring future research concepts in one or more of the following or equivalent fields: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD); ocean-atmosphere exchange; process understanding of the oceanic turbulence and mixing, as well as their parameterizations; combining models and observations with assimilation; methods of data science or artificial intelligence in the physical marine sciences. The successful candidate can build on a well-established cooperation between modelling and observational ocean and climate research groups. We particularly expect interdisciplinary cooperation with other GEOMAR departments and within Kiel Marine Sciences and informatics.

The professor will teach within the Kiel B.Sc. and M.Sc. programs in ocean and climate physics. We expect teaching in English. Non[1]German speaking applicants are expected to acquire German language skills and to teach some courses in German after three years at the latest.
