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
