Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research at the Campus Alpine of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, offers a Post-Doc/SeniorScientist position in Regional Climate Modeling for West Africa using WRF within the framework of the international project WASCAL (<www.wascal.org>). Starting date is May 1st or soon after, and the duration of the position is for 2 years. WASCAL (West African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adapted Land Use) is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and investigates the impact of climate- and land surface changes on hydrology, agriculture, biodiversity, and the livelihood of the population in West Africa. For this purpose regional climate models and coupled model 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/Burkina Faso and further partners in West Africa. A 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 WRF 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.
