Scientific Staff (post doc) at the Department of Meteorology and Geophysics (Reference number: 11683)

The University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, 178 fields of study, approx. 9.800 members of staff, about 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position from 01.03.2021 of a Scientific Staff (post doc) at the Department of Meteorology and Geophysics (Reference number: 11683)

We offer a 4-year post-doctoral position in the framework of the project LARA (Demonstration of a Lagrangian re-analysis), funded by the Austrian Science Fund and the Dr. Gottfried und Dr. Vera Weiss Science Foundation. The position will be embedded in the new research group of Prof. Andreas Stohl on atmospheric Lagrangian transport modelling. Our department has recently hired three new professors and is growing quickly, offering an exciting international research atmosphere. Meteorological re-analyses are arguably one of the most widely used data sets in atmospheric research and beyond. Publications describing these data are the most cited articles in the meteorological literature. All existing re-analyses, however, are of a Eulerian nature and provide data at fixed locations.

While this is perfectly suitable for many scientific studies, other research activities would benefit from a Lagrangian re-analysis that provides meteorological data along continuous trajectories. The goal of LARA is to create the first Lagrangian re-analysis of the atmosphere, based on the existing Eulerian ECMWF re-analysis, ERA-5 and the Lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEXPART (see, which is the main working tool of our research group. The project will provide this new data set to other researchers, but will also use it to answer important questions, such as the characterization of extreme events in temperature, precipitation and wind speeds, the identification of moisture source regions for precipitation, and energy transport between different regions of the globe, including their anomalies, e.g., during El Niño events.The starting date can be as early as 1 March 2020 and the duration is for four years.

Duration of employment: 4 year/s
Extent of Employment: 40 hours/week

Job grading in accordance with collective bargaining agreement: §48 VwGr. B1 lit. b (postdoc) with relevant work experience determining the assignment to a particular salary grade.

Job Description:

  • Research in the framework of the project LARA (Demonstration of a Lagrangian re-analysis);
  • Scientific publications and presentations;
  • Contributions to project applications and the acquisition of third-party funding;
  • Collaboration with and scientific and technical support of group members;
  • Supervision of students;
  • Involvement in the group and department activities.


  • Doctoral / PhD degree in meteorology, physics, chemistry, or related subject;
  • Good communication skills and ability to work in a team;
  • Experience in programming, ideally with Fortran;
  • Proven ability to publish in highly ranked international journals;
  • Excellent command of written and spoken English.

Furthermore, the following skills/expertise will be an asset:

  • Experience with use of atmospheric transport models;
  • Experience with working with re-analysis or other meteorological analysis data;
  • Expertise in statistics;
  • Experience in external fundraising.

Call for a master’s thesis Background: A structual decomposition to examine variation in resource efficiency


Resource efficiency (RE) is a central subject in environmental science, engineering and policy making and is implemented in various policies and strategic concepts such as circular economy, cascading utilization of resources, bioeconomy, and the SDGs. On an economy-wide scale, RE is frequently defined as the monetary benefit (e.g. GDP) a unit of resource use generates. Studies have shown that high GDP growth rates do not necessarily imply high growth in direct material use. However, taking indirect material use (material footprints) into account, resource coupling with GDP was found to be persistent, which indicates unsatisfactory progress towards RE. Current research highlights the need to identify and study obstacles that undermine societal efforts in improving RE.


The thesis work estimates to which extent different economic domains (e.g. final demand of governments and households, investments, technology development, and the material intensity of primary sectors) have contributed to decoupling and recoupling of monetary benefit with direct and indirect uses of biomass, fossil resources and minerals. To this end, structural decomposition analyses (SDA) will be conducted based on multi-regional input-output data [1]. The results comprehensively show how different domestic and foreign economic domains influence the resource efficiency of the countries under study. The results can be used to identify economic activities that obstruct the effectiveness of RE policies.


  • Enrolled in the Environmental System Sciences master program
  • Basic knowledge in a suitable computing environment (e.g. MATLAB, R, Python ...)
  • Basic knowledge in input-output analysis is an advantage

Further Information. The thesis will be supervised by Prof. Tobias Stern (SIS) and co-supervised by Raphael Asada (SIS). Possible languages are English and German. If you are interested in the topic, please contact until 31 January 2021
