The University of Augsburg, Institute of Geography, Chair for Regional
Climate and Hydrology, Germany, offers a

PostDoc / Senior Scientist position
and a
PhD position in

Dynamic and Stochastic Methods for the Generation of Spatio-Temporally
Coherent High-Resolution Meteorological Fields

within the framework of the project SYNOPSE.

Starting date is June 1st 2013 or soon after, and the duration of the
position is for 3 years.

SYNOPSE (Synthetic precipitation time series for the optimal planning
and operation of urban drainage systems) is funded by the German
Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). For mathematical modeling of
urban drainage systems, continuous, long-term and high-resolution time
series of precipitation are indispensible. In many cases available
observation data cannot fulfill these requirements but observed rainfall
statistics can be used to generate synthetic data in adequate
spatio-temporal resolution. In the course of the project high-resolution
meteorological fields will be generated for present and future climate
by combining information from a regional climate model (RCM) with
observed statistics stemming from different data sources (meteorological
stations, weather radar). The research focus lies on the development of
stochastic methods for bias-correction and refinement of RCM results,
statistical analysis of generated hydrometeorological fields for present
and future climate and their applicability for the mathematical
modelling of urban drainage systems.

The research work is performed in close cooperation with the Institute
of Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-IFU) at the Campus Alpine of
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the
SYNOPSE team at several further universities and institutions in Germany.

Requirements for PostDoc Position A PhD degree in meteorology,
hydrology, physics, maths, geo-ecology, environmental science,
environmental engineering, geography or related subjects is required.
Extensive skills in at least one programming language (e.g. FORTRAN, C)
and MATLAB or R are expected. Comprehensive experiences in geostatistics
and hydrometeorological modeling and analysis are needed. Team
capability and communication skills in English are required.

Requirements for PhD Position A master degree in meteorology, hydrology,
physics, maths, environmental science, environmental engineering,
geography or related subjects is required. Extensive skills in at least
one programming language (e.g. FORTRAN, C) and MATLAB or R are expected.
Experiences in regional climate modelling are beneficial. Team
capability and communication skills in English are required.
