[Met-jobs] PhD studentship at CNRM and French Radar Meteorology Centre (Toulouse, France) on the use of dual-polarization radar observations for NWP
There is an exciting opportunity for a full-time PhD studentship for three years within the French National Centre for Meteorological Research (CNRM, http://www.umr-cnrm.fr/?lang=en
) and Meteo-France Radar Meteorology Centre (CMR) in Toulouse, France, on the use of dual-polarization radar observations for numerical weather prediction (NWP). CNRM is the main research centre of Meteo-France, the French national weather service. CNRM and CMR are located on the same campus in Toulouse, a dynamic city with an exceptional heritage that is the fourth largest city in France.
The project is motivated by the need to improve the knowledge and prediction of thunderstorms, and by the availability of dual-polarization observations from Meteo-France's operational ground-based weather radar surveillance network. The studentship offers the opportunity to perform world-leading, interdisciplinary research in the fields of radar meteorology and convective-scale modelling, with a focus on microphysical processes in thunderstorms. A full description of the PhD project is available here: http://www.umr-cnrm.fr/IMG/pdf/phdthesis_dual-polarization_radar_and_nwp_final.pdf
Applications are invited from domestic and international high-quality graduates able to start their PhD studies in October 2017. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in atmospheric physics, with a particular interest in severe weather. The candidate should be self-motivated, with strong research potential, good programming skills, and good oral and written communication skills.
The applications including a detailed resume, an academic transcript, and the names of two references, must be sent to Dr Olivier Caumont (email@example.com
) by April 30, 2017.
