The German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ) is a non-profit and non-commercial limited company with four shareholders: the Max Planck Society, the City of Hamburg (represented by the University of Hamburg), the Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, and the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven.
As a national service provider, DKRZ operates a supercomputer centre to enable climate simulation and provides the scientific users with the technical infrastructure needed for processing and analysis of climate data. This also includes support for related application software, advice and support in data processing issues.
The users from the MPS come primarily from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz as well as from the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena.
There is always the possibility to do a PhD. Please contact the directors or research group leaders at the Institute.
