Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

The University of Zurich (Switzerland) currently has an open position for a

PhD student in hydrological modeling under climate change

The successful candidate will address key and complementary challenges
in hydrological modeling under climate change:

(1) Integrated evaluation of climate model simulations from the
ENSEMBLES and CORDEX projects through hydrological modeling at the
catchment scale

(2) Estimation of the reliability of different evapotranspiration
parameterizations for hydrological projections

(3) Assessment of the suitability of time-varying values for
hydrological model parameters

(4) Communication of the combined uncertainties for
climate-resilient decision-making

Applicants should have a Diploma or MSc degree in hydrology,
climatology, meteorology, environmental sciences or in a closely related
field. Strong numerical skills, including programming and data
processing, are required. Previous experience in hydrological or
atmospheric modeling or statistical analysis of large data sets is
considered a plus. We encourage applications from dedicated, independent
and creative individuals, who enjoy working in a team and with good oral
and written communication skills in English.

The position is fully funded for three years by the Swiss National
Science Foundation. More detailed information is available on:

Best regards,
Jan Seibert
