Freie Universität Berlin Institute of Meteorology Prof. Dr. Uwe Ulbrich / Dr. Henning Rust Regional climate modeller (Postdoc, 30 months) Stochastic modeller (Postdoc, 30 months) Extreme value statistics (PhD, 36 months) Two post-doc and one PhD positions are available in the frame of the EU funded project BINGO (Bringing INnovation to onGOing Management - a better future under climate change). The project aims at providing practical knowledge and tools to water managers affected by climate change to better cope with climate projections and near-term climate predictions (decadal predictions). The work package led by the Institute of Meteorology of Freie Universität Berlin will particularly address hydrological extreme conditions within climate change scenarios and decadal climate predictions, focusing on six representative areas across Europe. *Regional climate modeller (Postdoc, 30 months)* The successful applicant will identify extremal weather patterns and associated relevant parameters for part of the catchments, collect existing simulations from COSMO-CLM and other RCMs as well as GCMs from various archives and process the available climate data towards a format accessible for hydrological modelling. They will set up and run nested simulations with the regional climate model COSMO-CLM for the EURO-CORDEX region, quality controlling the results, implenent and apply multivariate bias correction methods for those quantities relevant for hydrological modelling. Besides the general requirements listed below, the successful applicant has experience in diagnosing climate extremes, usingglobal and regional models, in particular related to hydrological extremes, statistical post-processing methods (e.g. bias correction), and in regional climate modeling, preferably with COSMO-CLM. *Stochastic modeller (Postdoc, 30months)* The successful applicant will develop a precipitation-guided weather generator for high-resolution spatio-temporal fields of meteorological quantities relevant to hydrological modelling. The precipitation component will be based on spatial variants of Poisson-cluster models. Model parameters will be estimated from guage-based obsevations as well as from spatial fields of radar reflectivities. All components of the weather generator will be conditioned on large scale atmospheric drivers to allow a downscaling of climate projections. Besides the general requirements listed below, the successful applicant has experience in stochastic modelling and ideally some experience with stochastic weather generators. *Extreme value statistics (PhD, 36months)* The successful applicant will identifying episodes with extreme conditions for hydrological systems from global climate simulations for part of the catchments and characterising these episodes with measures for their hydrological severeness and with a probability of occurence. They wil quantifiy exceedance probabilities for precipitation events of various durations for several research sites in Europe. Based on extreme value statistics, intensity-duration-frequency (IDF) relationships are estimated at sites and in space. Linking these relationships to atmospheric drivers for downscaling of climate projections. Besides the general requirements listed below, the successful applicant has good knowledge in extreme value statistics. *All successful applicants* have a university degree (Master, Diploma) in Meteorology, Physics, Applied Mathematics or a related field. They are experienced in using computer environments (Linux, shell, data bases, handling of climate model output, e.g. CDO), modern environments of statistical computing, perferably R and publish and present scientific results. Ideally they have experience with the requirements of hydrological modelling.
