Physicist, Mathematician, Meteorologist - Space Weather Impact Research

Physicist, Mathematician, Meteorologist - Space Weather Impact Research

DLR - German Aerospace Center

Berlin, Germany

Your mission:

Sporadic and massive eruptions of very high-energy matter and radiation from the Sun can have a pronounced impact for example on the aeronautical ability to aviate, navigate and communicate.

The department for Space Weather Impact develops and investigates methods to measure, evaluate and predict physical as well as technical quantities, which describe the effects of space weather on technical systems. Results help to improve our understanding of space weather effects on (humans and) technical systems and to contribute to potential countermeasures in cooperation with scientific, industrial or governmental partners.

Your mission is application oriented research to improve the knowledge about space weather interactions with human technological infrastructure on ground and in space to support operators of critical infrastructure and services in the domain of navigation, communication, aviation, space exploration and electric power grid.

Your work will comprise the following tasks:

  • improve the knowledge about space weather interactions with human technological infrastructure to address problems related to electrically conducting infrastructure, malfunction of space and ground assets, impacts on satellite drag and the direct impact on radio wave and other communication transmissions;
  • develop new methods as well as indices to describe the ionospheric interference level for radio systems;
  • investigate Space Weather influence on precise and safety-critical GNSS needed in aviation or predictable future applications like automated car navigation;
  • investigate long term effects due to nominal space weather changes as well as strong solar events;
  • presenting research findings to the international scientific community and continuously exchange your experience with other international teams operating in this field;
  • taking charge of project tasks.

You will bring in your excellent skills into an international successful and highly motivated research team with long scientific expertise in ionosphere and space weather research. Here, you will experience a very good working atmosphere in a well-equipped and modern research site situated in a beautiful and livable region of Germany.

Your qualifications:

  • University degree (master's or diploma) in physics, meteorology, applied mathematics or a comparable scientific discipline;
  • excellent PhD in Geophysics, Physics or Mathematics;
  • many years of experience in scientific work and writing of publications;
  • many years of scientific experience in space weather Research;
  • special knowledge about the effects of space weather on technical systems;
  • many years of experience and specialist knowledge in the analysis and modelling of physical processes;
  • profound knowledge in higher programming languages (e.g. Fortran, Python, Matlab, C++);
  • very good knowledge of the English language (spoken and written);
  • experience in project acquisition and project Management is desired.
