The successful candidate is expected to perform numerical experiments with the global ocean general circulation model MPIOM to quantify the contributions of large-scale ocean dynamics to observed changes in the Earth’s orientation. Special emphasis will be placed on the impact of large-scale climate modes like the Madden-Julian Oscillation, the El Nino Southern Oscillation, and the Southern Annular Mode on both polar motion and variations in the length-of-day.
The work will be performed in close collaboration with the University of Bonn (Prof. Schindelegger) and is expected to contribute to the future development of the Special Bureau for the Oceans of the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS).
