Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Depart­ment of Hydro­sci­en­ces, Insti­tute of Hydro­logy and Meteo­ro­logy, Chair of Meteo­ro­logy

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. It deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion. For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD stu­dent (m/f/x)


At the Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Depart­ment of Hydro­sci­en­ces, Insti­tute of Hydro­logy and Meteo­ro­logy, the Chair of Meteo­ro­logy offers a posi­tion as

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD stu­dent (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion com­pri­ses 75% of the full-time wee­kly hours and is limi­ted to 36 mon­ths, fun­ded by the DFG pro­ject "The effect of roof-moun­ted photo-vol­taic modu­les on the urban micro­cli­mate and indoor ther­mal com­fort (EUPHO­RIC)". The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – WissZeitVG). This pro­ject is con­duc­ted in close coope­ra­tion with the Leib­nitz Uni­ver­sity Han­no­ver and the Phy­si­ka­lisch-Tech­ni­sche Bun­des­an­stalt in Braun­schweig. The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD).

Working field:

The main objec­tive is the inves­ti­ga­tion the effect of area-wide PV deploy­ment in urban areas on the urban micro­cli­mate in terms of ther­mal com­fort and air qua­lity. For this pur­pose, we plan to imple­ment a new para­me­te­ri­za­tion for roof-top PV panels in the LES model PALM and use the model to simu­late and ana­lyze the effects of the area-wide deploy­ment of PV panels under rea­listic atmo­s­phe­ric con­di­ti­ons. These simu­la­ti­ons will be eva­lua­ted by in-situ mea­su­rements of tur­bu­lent flu­xes under the chal­len­ging con­di­ti­ons of urban envi­ron­ments.
