Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

The Chair for Regional Climate and Hydrology of the University of
Augsburg, Germany, in close cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute
of Technology, Campus Alpin in Garmisch-Partenkirchen,
offers a

PostDoc/Senior Scientist Position (m/f) in
"Geostatistical Analysis and Copula-Based Data Merging Algorithms for a
Stochastic Quantification of Precipitation Fields"

within the framework of the DFG Research Unit "Data Assimilation for
Improved Characterization of Fluxes Across Compartmental Interfaces

Starting date is 1.4.2014 and the duration of the position initially
is for 3 years.

The DFG Research Unit FOR2131 is led by the University of Bonn and sets
out to design and install a data assimilation framework for
catchment-scale terrestrial systems encompassing all compartments from
the groundwater to the atmosphere including soil, vegetation, and river
networks. Observations to be assimilated into a physically-based
simulation platform of the terrestrial system encompass groundwater
levels, in-situ soil moisture, river levels and discharge, turbulent
fluxes and other micrometeorological observations, in-situ and
radar-based precipitation, and brightness temperatures from satellites,
amongst others. More detailed information on FOR2131 can be found on

Within FOR2131, the project P3 "Geostatistical Analysis and Copula-Based
Data Merging Algorithms for a Stochastic Quantification of Precipitation
Fields“ focuses on stochastic rainfall reconstruction from different
measurement types, like gauges, microwave links and Radar information.

We seeka PostDoc with an excellent master and PhD degree in
mathematics, meteorology, hydrology, physics, geo-ecology, environmental
science, environmental engineering or related subjects. Extensive skills
in hydrometeorology and geostatistics are expected; experience in Copula
theoryis beneficial. It is expected that the candidate closely
cooperates with the other scientists in the Research Unit and
international research groups.

We offera position in a young and active team that are placed within a
collaborative research environment with excellent research
infrastructure and support. We are well connected to national and
international research programmes. Salary and benefits will be based on
the Collective Agreement for the German Public Service Sector (TV-L).

Applicationsincluding curriculum vitae, certificates, short outline of
own interests and skills regarding the position’s profile, and the
contact information of one to two professional referees should be send
till 15.2.2014 by E-mail to
