Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Campus Alpin, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany) is looking for a PhD candidate to fill a three-year position from 1st of March 2017 on (or earliest convenience). The position is embedded in the BMBF-funded project "Seasonal Water Resources Management in Semiarid Regions: Application-oriented Transfer of Regionalized Global Information (SaWaM)“ (the position will be filled depending on final approval of the project). In SaWaM, methods and tools for the application-oriented transfer of regionalized global information to water management in data-sparse semi-arid regions will be developed and their performance analysed. In a cooperation of seven scientific partners and two companies, the regional focus will be on Sudan, Iran, Brazil, Ecuador/Peru, and West Africa. For hydrological design purposes, our temporal scale covers the past up to the present, while for operational management purposes it will address the upcoming 1-12 months. SaWaM employs models addressing seasonal forecasting, water availability, sedimentation processes, and ecosystem states. Model approaches are extended by satellite-borne methods. An online prototype of a globally applicable decision support system for dry-land water management will be developed through an integrative approach in close cooperation with German business partners and local stakeholders. The main work tasks for the PhD candidate are: - Evaluating global seasonal forecasts for the different target regions - Downscaling of global seasonal forecasts with the WRF-modeling system - Development and application of bias correction methods for seasonal predictions - Statistical analysis of results and comparison to different observation products To be successful the potential PhD candidate should have: - An excellent MSc in environmental or natural sciences, hydrology, meteorology, engineering or computer science - Very good programming skills, preferably (but not necessarily) in Matlab, Python, R, FORTRAN - Experiences with the WRF-modeling system - Good knowledge of UNIX/Linux systems - Good communication skills in English - Willingness to work in an international project Please send your detailed application electronically and in one pdf-file to email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> ---------------------------------------- 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
