Could you please advertise the following Post-doc position

Project title: Improving Drought and Flood Early Warning, Forecasting and Mitigation using real-time hydroclimatic indicators (IMDROFLOOD), an European funded project.

Working plan: The main purpose of this fellowship is to assist the team achieving the deliverables defined in the IMDROFLOOD project. The candidate will work extensively with probabilistic meteorological forecasts from the ECMWF in order to develop and validate probabilistic short and medium-term operative meteorological forecast, focused on intense Cyclone events and Atmospheric Rivers affecting Europe often associated with the most extreme precipitation events. In addition, the candidate will assess the usefulness of different drought indices when applied to sectorial impacts at a river basin scale. Finally the candidate will interact with stakeholders and end-users for building impact prediction tools for decision making.

Admission requirements:

- Ph.D in Atmospheric Sciences, with solid knowledge in Climate Dynamics and impacts of large scale circulation in climate at the regional scale;

- It is considered essential good programing skills in languages such as MATLAB (or IDL or Python) and/or Fortran;

- Preference will be given to candidates that demonstrate a background handling extreme precipitation events (e.g. Droughts and/or floods);

- It is an advantage a good knowledge in handling large datasets such as Reanalysis datasets (e.g. ERA-Interim, NCEP/NCAR), as well as, GCM and RCM outputs;


Workplace: The work will be done at the Instituto Dom Luiz, Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon Portugal, under the supervision of the under the scientific supervision of Dr. Ricardo M. Trigo.

Length of contract: This position is initially opened for 6 months and will begin on January 2017. The fellowship contract may be renewed to more 18 months.
