The German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ) is the central data processing facility for the German climate and Earth system modelling and is one of the leading facilities in this area. DKRZ operates supercomputers in the highest performance class, modern high-performance clusters and graphics systems as well as one of the largest data and archive systems world-wide. DKRZ participates in many national and international projects aiming to improve the infrastructure for climate modelling. Through its research group on scientific  computing DKRZ is linked to the department of informatics of the University of Hamburg.
DKRZ invites applications for a Research Associate (m,f,d) within the research theme „High-Performance Computing and Data-Intensive Science“ of the excellence cluster CLICCS „Climate, Climate Change and Society“.
CLICCS is an ambitious research program at the University of Hamburg and its partner institutions. Funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), it is part of Germany’s Excellence Strategy. The program aims to understand climate changes, taking into account internal variability, extreme events, and unexpected side effects, addressing the natural and social spheres as well as their interactions.
A focus of CLICCS is on research and development to meet the challenges arising from increasing computational requirements of climate research on the one hand, and bottlenecks limiting the efficiently scalable exploitation of high-performance computing on the other hand.

A top-level objective in this respect is the conceptual improvement as well as development and application oriented evaluation of innovative methods in the area of climate model software engineering, especially for ICON. The activity contributes to a “cross-disciplinary lab”, where CLICCS computer and data scientists collaborate with climate scientists and model developers.
