IMK-TRO offers one PhD Position on highly resolved radar
measurements of precipitation in an urban environment.

In the framework of GRACE ( we
want to investigate the distribution of precipitation at very high
spatial resolution. Whereas most investigations of the
climate within cities concentrate on the heat island effect and air
quality issues, we want to examine the feedback of the urban
environment on the rainfall. This feedback may only be visible
downstream of the city.

This investigation aims primarily on summer precipitation. Central
element will be a six month measurement period with an X-band radar
in or near Stuttgart, Germany.

We aim at an close cooperation with the "Verbundprojekt Stadtklima
im Wandel" (compound project on changing city climate) which deals
with the development and evaluation of a numerical model to
investigate the climate within a large city. Spatial resolution
shall be in the order of 10 m.

This vacancy aims only at non-German candidates.
Successful candidates must have a university degree in meteorology
or related subject (Diploma or M. Sc.). A strong background in
atmospheric physics or active remote sensing is also necessary. You
should have a solid knowledge in scientific programming (preferably
in Matlab) and experience in using Linux. Written and oral
communication skills sufficient to author manuscripts and present
research at conferences are desirable.

Contract period: 3 years
Begin of contract: Sept. 1st, 2016.
