Dear colleagues,


The research group Regional Climate and Hydrology of the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology –

Campus Alpin, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany) offers a PhD-position for 3 years on 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 major task of SaWaM is the development of methods and tools for the practice transfer of regionalized global data for water resources management in five semi-arid target regions (Iran, Sudan, Brazil, Ecuador, and West-Africa). The project work will be performed in close collaboration with other German and international research facilities and business partners.


The main work tasks for the candidate are 

- Evaluating global seasonal forecasts for different semi-arid 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

Yours sincerely,

Harald Kunstmann
