Gerrit Lohmann studied physics and mathematics at the Universities Göttingen and Marburg, and received the diploma in physics in 1992. From 1992 to 1995 he worked as a graduate research assistant at the Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven, Germany. In 1994, he was a visiting scientist at the Earth Science Centre, University of Gothenburg and got a scholarship of the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD. He obtained his Ph.D. Degree in physics in Bremen in 1995/1996.
After 5 years at the Max-Planck-Institute in Hamburg working on climate modelling, he worked at the Geosciences Department of Bremen and the Meteorological Institute at the University of Hamburg. From 2002 to 2004, he had a tenure position at Bremen University, Center for Marine Environmental Sciences and was a lecturer at the University of Hamburg and the European Graduate College in Marine Sciences. He authors more than 200 peer-reviewed publications in international journals in the fields of climate modelling, and statistical analysis of observational and proxy data. Since July 2004, he is a professor for Physics of the Climate System ("Paleoclimate Dynamics") at the Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven in cooperation with the Physics Department at the University of Bremen.
Gerrit Lohmann was active in several national and international projects and activities, e.g. President of the climate division of the European Geosciences Union (2006-2009). He was the initiator and speaker of the Earth System Science Research School (ESSReS) at the University of Bremen, Jacobs University Bremen, and AWI Bremerhaven. He had several short-term research stays, conference contributions, and teaching at summer/winter schools. Supervision of more than 30 students and 25 PhDs.
