Computer Scientist, Mathematician, Physicist or similar - Development of Data Science Methods in the field of Climate Informatics

DLR - German Aerospace Center

Jena, Germany

Your mission:

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Friedrich-Schiller-University (FSU) Jena in collaboration with the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry established a research group on Climate Informatics at the new DLR Institute of Data Science in Jena, Germany. Climate Informatics is a challenging and promising research field where a concentrated effort will have a high impact both to advance science and to address climate change topics of critical importance for the society.

The group develops innovative data science methods and closely works with experts in the climate sciences. The core methodological topics include graphical models, causal inference, nonlinear time series analysis, and deep learning via a close collaboration with the machine learning group at FSU Jena. But the methods are flexible and open for your ideas!

Your tasks:

  • Development of data science algorithms for causal inference
  • Application of methods on observed and simulated Earth system data
  • Publication of results in peer-reviewed journals
  • Presentation of results on national and international conferences

To support your international research experience, all positions have a generous travel budget for conferences and extended research stays. Currently, we have collaborators at Imperial College London, Oxford, Carnegie Mellon University, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and California Institute of Technology.

Your qualifications:

  • Master or PhD in (applied) mathematics, statistics, computer science, physics, or data science.
  • creativity and strong motivation to develop new algorithms and learning paradigms for using machine learning for climate science applications.
  • practical knowledge of the current state-of-the-art in machine learning.
  • desire and ability to work in an interdisciplinary team.
  • commitment and dedication to develop robust, working systems.
  • fluency in written and oral English.
  • strong programming expertise in Python and general knowledge in computer science.
