UNIVERSITÄT HOHENHEIM
INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS AND METEOROLOGY
The Chair of Physics and Meteorology

Postdoc (TV L E13) position for 25 months available at the
Institute of Physics and Meteorology (IPM), University of Hohenheim,
Stuttgart, Germany 

in a project with the objective to investigate and quantify feedback processes 
between the
atmosphere and the soil-vegetation system in a changing climate. In this 
project a coupled
atmosphere-land surface-crop model is applied over Central Europe with 
convection-permitting
resolution. It is expected that at this scale land surface atmosphere feedback
over heterogeneous and agricultural landscapes will be better represented and 
their coupling
to clouds and precipitation will be more realistic as the parameterisation of 
deep convection
can be avoided. This will be proven by detailed model verification including 
scores
for extreme value statistics of temperature and precipitation.

The successful candidate will apply the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) 
model
at very high resolution as part of the integrated land system model system, 
which is developed
within the project. The objective is to analyze the results with respect to 
land-atmosphere
interaction in agricultural landscapes and to the effects of land surface 
heterogeneity
using new model diagnostics.
