EUMETSAT is now inviting applications from suitably qualified scientists from 
its Member States and Cooperating States for a Research Fellowship. POST: 
Research Fellowship (Investigating the Assimilation of Geostationary Water 
Vapour Radiance Data to extract Wind Information with an Ensemble Kalman Filter)

LOCATION: Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD),
Frankfurter Str. 135
63067 Offenbach

DURATION: The fellowship is offered for one year, with the possibility of 
extension for up to two additional years.

The Research Fellow will join the Data Assimilation Group in the Numerical 
Weather Prediction (NWP) Department at the German Weather Service (DWD). He/she 
will work alongside DWD scientists, taking an active part in the research and 
development of the new ensemble-based data assimilation system to be employed 
for the global and regional high resolution forecasts.

The work will focus on the assimilation of water vapour radiance information 
from geostationary satellites. The main aim is to evaluate the ability of the 
ensemble data assimilation to extract wind information from the movement of 
water vapour structures observed in time sequences of geostationary satellite 
observations. Whilst the main work will be done in the context of the global 
data assimilation system, using a combined variational and ensemble-based 
approach (VarEnKF), results and experiments may be extended to the 
high-resolution ensemble-based assimilation system (LETKF in KENDA) towards the 
end of the position period.
