[Met-jobs] Ph.D. position at LaMP on Radar Precipitation Nowcasting

From Joël Van Baelen <>
Date Fri, 20 Mar 2015 09:39:15 +0100

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for forwarding the following advertisement for a Ph.D. position opening at LaMP to any potential candidate. Apologies for eventual cross-postings.

The LaMP (Laboratoire de Météorologie Physique) in Clermont Ferrand, France, is currently  seeking a Ph. D. candidate on the " Estimation and nowcasting of rain over an urban basin ".

The research work will focus on:
   •    Optimal estimates of precipitations with local area X band precipitation radars
   •    Combination of data from multiple radars with data from rain gage networks through various data merging/calibration methods
   •    Nowcasting of rain

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated background in analysis and signal processing methods, remote sensing physics, as well as atmospheric dynamics principles. Further knowledge in radar measurement principles as well as good programming skills are also desired. Although autonomous to carry on his/her research, he/she will also be part of a small team to apprehend the different aspects of the thesis work, hence good relational and communication skills are essentials.

The deadline for receipt of applications at the Doctoral School of Université Blaise Pascal is May 29, 2015.
For further information and application, please consider the attached documents.
You may also contact Dr. Joël Van Baelen ( who is leading the project.

Best regards,

Joël Van Baelen
