Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Postdoctoral position in Regional Hydrological Modelling (Alps/Switzerland) Oeschger Centre, University of Bern, Switzerland The Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Bern, Switzerland (<http://www.oeschger.unibe.ch>) opens a postdoctoral research position for an enthusiastic young researcher to work in the field of climate change and impacts on the regional hydrology in the Alps and Switzerland. The research envisaged is placed at the interface between climatology and hydrology and deals with quantitative regional-scale hydrological responses to current and future climate change, with a focus on heavy precipitation and floods in the Alps. The ideal candidate has a strong background (PhD) and demonstrated record in numerical hydrological modelling, and a profound understanding of catchment-scale hydrological and atmospheric processes. He/she is experienced in the handling with and interpretation of GCM and RCM output data, and is familiar with the climatology/hydrology in the Greater Alpine Area. An international publications record and strong language skills (English, German) are further assets. The successful candidate will be affiliated with the Group of Hydrology at the Institute of Geography, supervised by Prof. Rolf Weingartner, and be a member of the Oeschger Centre. Close collaboration is expected with the Climate Risks group (Prof. O. Romppainen-Martius) and other groups of the Oeschger Centre. The position is available for two years with possible extension to a maximum of four years after successful evaluation in the 2nd year. Starting date is 1 August 2011 (negotiable). Deadline for applications: 1 May 2011; review will continue until the position is filled. Applications of females are strongly encouraged. Informal enquiries should be made and applications (ONE pdf with CV, letter of motivation, publications list, copy of the PhD certificate, names and addresses of three referees) should be sent to: Prof. Dr. Rolf Weingartner, Inst. of Geography & Oeschger Centre, University of Bern, Switzerland <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>, Tel. +41 31 631 88 74
