Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

The Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Karlsruhe Institute
of Technology, Campus Alpin, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany is looking
for a

PostDoc candidate

to fill a three-year position from 1st of June 2017 on (or earliest
convenience). The position is embedded in the DFG-funded cooperation project

High-Resolution Atmospheric Water Vapor Fields by Spaceborne Geodetic
Sensing, Tomographic Fusion, and Atmospheric Modeling (AtmoWater)

with cooperation partners from KIT (GIK, IPF) and ETH Zurich (IGP).

By using GNSS and InSAR based techniques in combination with high
resolution regional atmospheric weather modeling and geostatistical data
merging techniques, the project AtmoWater aims at developing and
evaluating new approaches to derive improved spatio-temporal estimates
of the atmospheric water vapor distribution.

The main work tasks for the position are:

Downscaling of global atmospheric models with the WRF and WRF-Hydro
modeling systems
Development of an data assimilation procedure for remote-sensing
based atmospheric moisture information within WRF (3DVAR)
Copula-based dependence structure analysis between modeled and
GNSS/InSAR derived moisture fields

To be successful the potential candidate should have:

PhD in environmental- or natural sciences, preferably meteorology,
hydrology, physics
Demonstrated expertise in data assimilation, preferably experience
with copula statistics
Expert knowledge about atmospheric dynamics and atmospheric
modeling, preferably with the WRF-modeling system, knowledge about
physically based hydrological modeling
Proven programming skills in FORTRAN and preferably (but not
necessarily) Python, R, or Matlab
Good knowledge of UNIX/Linux and HPC systems including scripting
Good communication skills in English

Please send your detailed application electronically and in one pdf-file
to until 15th of April 2017 latest.

The position remains open until a suitable candidate has been selected.

KIT/IMK-IFU strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of
employment. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to
apply for this position. With appropriate qualifications, applications
from handicapped persons will be treated with preference.
