Welcome to the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research - Department Troposphere Research (IMK-TRO). In the field of tropospheric research, fundamental research on climate, water cycle and trace gas budgets are carried out. These atmospheric processes such as turbulence, convection, cloud formation, aerosol physics, precipitation formation and exchange processes on the Earth's surface by measurements and theoretical methods are examined in detail. The results are used in models of the atmosphere to represent and predict processes in the climate system or weather phenomena.
There is an opening for a full professorship (W3) in Meteorology at the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-TRO). We are looking for a leading scientist with an outstanding track record in the broad area of fundamental research in meteorology/atmospheric sciences.
