The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) 
at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg (Group Theoretical 
Physics/Complex Systems) invites applications for a

postdoc position (m/f/d)

Connectivity between the islands in different archipelagos worldwide

salary according to E13 TV-L, 100%

starting from 1.10.2022 (for three years)

The position is suitable for part-time work.

Application deadline: 1 September 2022


The ICBM is an interdisciplinary research institute, for fundamental and 
applied marine research. The internationally renowned institute aims at 
understanding the function of marine environmental systems through close 
cooperation of the various scientific disciplines (chemistry, biology, 
physics, mathematical modelling) of its more than 20 research groups.

The group Theoretical Physics/Complex Systems works on the application 
of methods from nonlinear dynamics in environmental science, such as the 
interplay between biological processes and hydrodynamic flows. The topic 
of this postdoc position is related to a collaborative project funded by 
the German Science Foundation “Spatial community ecology in highly 
dynamic landscapes: from island biogeography to metaecosystems”. The 
main objective is to provide the basics of passive transport of 
particles due to oceanic and atmospheric flows for other groups working 
in ecological modeling and data analysis, Therefore the work is highly 
interdisciplinary.

*Your tasks:*Maps estimating the transport of particles (tracers and 
inertial particles) by hydrodynamic flows (ocean and atmospheric) 
between different locations on the globe shall be created and compared 
to plant and bird species distributions in the world. This involves 
designing efficient computer programs for numerical particle tracking in 
large scale flows with applications to passive transport of plant seeds, 
active transport of plant seeds by birds along bird flying routes 
worldwide with a special emphasis on different island archipelagos. The 
comparison with data from macroecology will be done in close 
collaboration with scientists from the TU Munich and the University 
Göttingen.

*Requirements:*Qualifying academic university degree (Master or diploma 
(not of a University of Applied Sciences)) and a PhD degree in Physics, 
Meteorology, Oceanography, Atmospheric Science, Environmental Sciences, 
Mathematics, with good grades. A strong background in physics, 
particularly hydrodynamics and extended experience in computer 
programming with Matlab, Python, Julia or other higher programming 
languages is expected. Knowledge in multivariate data analysis in space 
and time is desirable. Applicants should be open for interdisciplinary 
collaborations with biologists and ecologists.

The University of Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of 
female employees in the field of science. Therefore, female candidates 
are strongly encouraged to apply. In accordance with Lower Saxony 
regulations (§ 21 Section 3 NHG) female candidates with equal 
qualifications will be preferentially considered. Applicants with 
disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualification.

Applications, including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, qualifying 
documents (final academic records), a research statement (maximum 1 
page) and the names and contact information of up to two references 
should be submitted by email in a single PDF to Prof. Dr. Ulrike Feudel 
([log in para visualizar]) using subject "Particle Dynamics" by 01.09.2022. 
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Dr. Ulrike Feudel 
([log in para visualizar]) for more information about the position.
