Fachbereich Geowissenschaften - Institut für Geologische Wissenschaften FR Planetologie und Fernerkundung

Research assistant (m/f/d) with 75%part-time job limited to 28.02.2026 Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU reference code: PhD-VENUS-VEM

Bewerbungsende: 21.11.2022

In cooperation with the Institute for Planetary Research of the German Aerospace Center, the FU Berlin is planning to provide a power unit for the "Venus Emissivity Mapper" (VEM) instrument as a contribution to the "Venus Emissivity, Radio Science, InSAR, Topography" mission, & Spectroscopy” (VERITAS). The main goal of this instrument is to perform spectroscopy to study the surface composition of Venus.

Job description:
A central goal of the position is to support the preparation for VEM data processing and analysis. Radiative transfer models for data analysis are to be developed. The resulting data which will be gathered on the Venusian atmosphere can also be used to extend an existing coupled 1D chemistry-climate model of Venus. The updated model will be used to advance our understanding of the evolution of the atmosphere of Venus and Venus-like planets.

Completed scientific university degree (Master or comparable) in physics, astronomy or engineering – preferably in atmospheric/geophysics or an engineering science.

• Experience with numerical models (e.g. radiative transfer, climate) of planetary atmospheres
• High motivation, independence, ability to work in a team, ability to communicate scientific results well
• Very good programming skills
• Very good knowledge of spoken and written English

For further information, please contact Frau Prof. Dr. Heike Rauer (heike.rauer@fu-berlin.de / 030/838-70575 (Sekretariat)).
