IMK-TRO offers one PhD Position on highly resolved radar measurements of precipitation in an urban environment. In the framework of GRACE (www.grace.kit.edu/english/index.php) 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. For further questions, please ask Dr. Jan Handwerker, Tel: +49 721 608 22847, email: firstname.lastname@example.org Please send your complete application documents (CV, university certificate, etc.) to: email@example.com -- _________________________________________________________________ Jan Handwerker http://www.imk-tro.kit.edu/jan.handwerker.php
