The HAICU-Local Unit Artificial Intelligence for Earth System Analytics and Modelling will focus on the application of advanced machine learning methods to Earth System and Climate Science, specifically focusing on Earth System Analytics, Earth System Modelling and Predictability. Preferred starting date is as soon as possible, ideally not later than January, 1st 2020. A connection of the position to the University of Hamburg with teaching responsibility and the right to supervise and examine PhD candidates is desired; all details of this connection can be negotiated, based on personal qualifications.
