Forwarded from CLIMLIST... West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) “Regional Climate Simulations and Land-Atmosphere Interactions” Postdoc Position (3 years, 100%) Postdoc Position (2 years, 100%) Doctoral Position (3 years, 50%) “Climate Monitoring” Postdoc Position, 18 months (100%) The Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Chair for Regional Climate and Hydrology of the University of Augsburg, Germany, offer positions for three postdocs (m/f) and one doctoral student (m/f) in Climate- and Hydrological Sciences Starting date: January 1st, 2013, or soon after to strengthen the WASCAL team at the KIT Campus-Alpine in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and at the University of Augsburg. Within the framework of the international project WASCAL (<www.wascal.org>) funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) the impact of climate- and land surface changes on hydrology, agriculture, biodiversity, and the livelihood of the population in West Africa is investigated. For this purpose regional climate models and coupled modelling systems are further developed and applied for high resolution regional climate simulations and for the investigation of land-atmosphere interactions. The research work is performed in close cooperation with several universities and major research institutions in Germany, the competence centre of WASCAL in Ouagadougou and further partners in West Africa. Additionally, local and trans-national observation networks are established in several West African countries for monitoring climate and water balance and further characteristics of the West African ecosystem. The establishment of the climate stations is jointly performed with WMO-GCOS and the national and international weather and hydrological services in West Africa such as ACMAD and AGRYHMET. Postdoc Positions ”Regional Climate Simulations and Land-Atmosphere Interactions“ An excellent master and PhD degree in meteorology, hydrology, physics, geo-ecology, environmental science, environmental engineering, geography or related subjects is required. Extensive skills in at least one programming language (e.g. FORTRAN) and MATLAB or R are expected. Comprehensive experiences in the application and advancement of regional climate models (e.g. WRF, CCLM or RegCM4) and in High Performance Computing are needed. Fitness for the tropics, willingness for international trips, team capability and perfect communication skills in English is required. Doctoral Position “Regional Climate Simulations and Regional Land-Atmosphere Interactions“ An excellent master degree in meteorology, hydrology, physics, geo-ecology, environmental science, environmental engineering, geography or related subjects is required. Experiences in at least one higher programming language (e.g. FORTRAN) and R or MATLAB are needed. Experiences in the field of simulation of atmospheric and hydrological processes using numerical methods and/or first experiences in the application of regional climate models are very beneficial. Fitness for the tropics, willingness for international trips, team capability and very good skills in English are expected. Postdoc Position ”Climate Monitoring” An excellent master and PhD degree in meteorology, hydrology, physics, geo-ecology, environmental science, environmental engineering, geography or related subjects is required. Extensive knowledge of state-of-the-art measurement techniques in meteorology or hydrology, wide experience in the establishment of meteorological stations and in the development of operational systems for climate or hydrological monitoring is beneficial. Experiences in at least one higher programming language (e.g. FORTRAN) and R or MATLAB are needed. Fitness for the tropics, willingness for international trips, team capability, perfect communication skills in English and an organizational talent are required, as well. Very good French skills are beneficial. The positions remain open until suitable candidates have been selected. KIT and the University of Augsburg strive to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this position. With appropriate qualifications, applications from persons with handicaps will be treated with preference.
