Post-doc: Data-intensive modeling of the global water cycle Department/faculty: Civil Engineering and Geosciences Level: PhD degree (post doc) Working hours: 40 hours per week Contract: 2 years Salary: €2744 to €3195 per month gross Civil Engineering and Geosciences The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences provides leading, international research and education. Our research addresses societal issues, with innovation and sustainability as central themes. Research and education are closely interwoven. The faculty consists of the Departments of Design & Construction, Hydraulic Engineering, Transport & Planning, Water Management and Geotechnology. Job description The development of a high resolution global hydrological model has recently been put forward as Grand Challenge for the hydrological community. In order to ensure proper parameterization of such a model, massive assimilation of remotely sensed data is needed. Full use will need to be made of the possibilities that recent trends in the availability of computational power offer. The successful candidate will develop the tools for global scale assimilation of satellite and ground-based data into the PCR-GLOBWB model. While based at the Water Resources Management group of Delft University of Technology (wrm.tudelft.nl), the work will take place in close cooperation with scientists from the eScience Center and Utrecht University. Requirements The applicant should have a PhD degree in a relevant science (such as one of the Earth Sciences or Applied Physics) and have affinity with large scale computational problems. Conditions of employment The successful candidate will be employed full-time by TU Delft for a fixed period of two years. TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work week, free high-speed Internet access from home (with a contract of two years or longer), and the option of assembling a customised compensation and benefits package (the 'IKA'). Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. Information and application For more information about this position, please contact Prof. Nick van de Giesen by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. To apply, please send a letter of application together with a Curriculum Vitae that explicitly states your educational record, recent major achievements, programming skills, list of publications, industrial experience (if any) and the names of three persons who could be contacted for a reference.
