Forwarded from CLIMLIST... An-Najah National University (Nablus) and the KIT Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (Garmisch-Partenkirchen) are looking for a candidate to fill a three-year Postdoc position at An-Najah University. Working place is Nablus. The position is embedded in the DFG-funded trilateral project “Integrating Microwave Link Data For Analysis of Precipitation in Complex Terrain: Theoretical Aspects and Hydrometeorological Applications (IMAP)”, with partners from Germany (KIT, TU München, DWD), Palestine (An-Najah University) and Israel (Tel Aviv University, Jerusalem College of Technology, Kinneret Limnological Laboratory, Israel Hydrological Service). After a successful first phase of two years, the DFG approved now the second phase with a duration of three years. The objective of IMAP is to develop and apply new methods for the quantification of precipitation in regions of complex terrain and thereby improve streamflow modeling and forecasts. We use data from commercial MW-link networks and develop new methods for the derivation of rainfall and humidity information, as well as methods to do spatial reconstruction of the line-integrated information that MW-links provide. To account for the complex runoff processes in our target regions, we apply and improve the fully coupled model system WRF-Hydro, which is then also used for streamflow forecasting. The main work tasks for the Postdoc are: · Receive training on WRF-Hydro by KIT experts in Germany · Validate current WRF-Hydro setup for the Wadi Faria (East of Nablus) · Extend WRF-Hydro with channel loss and overbank flow parametrization · Validate new parametrization implementations · Carry out performance analysis for different rainfall products (MW-links, weather radar, dense gauge network) for Wadi Faria To be successful the potential Postdoc should have: · A PhD in environmental or natural sciences, engineering or computer science · Very good programming skills, preferably (but not necessarily) in FORTRAN 90 · Good knowledge of UNIX/Linux systems · Publication record in atmospheric or hydrological sciences · Good communication skills in English · Willingness to work in a trilateral project with German, Palestinian and Israeli scientists Please send your detailed application electronically and in one pdf-file to firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> Prof. Dr. Anan Jayyousi, An-Najah National University and firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> Prof. Dr. Harald Kunstmann, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) & University of Augsburg - Prof. Dr. Harald Kunstmann Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) Campus Alpin - Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-IFU) Kreuzeckbahnstrasse 19 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany Chair for Regional Climate and Hydrology University of Augsburg http://www.imk-ifu.kit.edu/staff_Harald_Kunstmann.php http://www.geo.uni-augsburg.de/en/chairs_professorships/regklima/ KIT - The Research University in the Helmholtz Association
