Eurac Research is looking for a

Collaborator for the H2020 PROSNOW project

German title:
Mitarbeiter des H2020 Projekts PROSNOW

Italian title:
Collaboratore per il progetto H2020 PROSNOW

Short description of the position/project:

The PROSNOW project ambitions to build a demonstrator of a
meteorological and climate prediction system from one week to several
months ahead applied to snow management, specifically tailored to the
needs of the ski industry using a codesign approach. This novel climate
service holds significant potential to increase the resilience of
socio-economic mountain stakeholders and supports their real-time
climate change adaptation potential. PROSNOW will apply state-of-the-art
knowledge relevant to the predictability of atmospheric and snow
conditions, then develop products well beyond state-of-the-art
operational tools. Improved anticipation capabilities at all time
scales, spanning from “weather forecast” (up to 5 days) to “climate
prediction” at the seasonal scale (up to several months), will be
achieved through a seamless integration of weather and seasonal
prediction products, together with snowpack models, in-situ and
remotely-sensed observations and cutting-edge statistical tools in
support of the decision making process. The project proposes an
Alpinewide system (France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Italy).

The candidate will work on the first tasks of the project, related to
the identification and collection of relevant geodata for the pilot ski
resorts, existing past and real-time meteorological data, existing past
and real-time snow observations in ski resorts, and remotely sensed
information. The data will be critically checked, homogenized and
prepared for inclusion in a databased


·Collection of past and real-time meteorological and snow data acquired
by ski-resort and other weather stations;

·Data checking and homogenization.


·University degree in computer science or engineering or a comparable
course of study;

·Very good knowledge in programming language (python, R);

·Good knowledge of (geographical) database and file parsing;

·Ability in team working, good communication, motivation to learn and
personal initiative;

·Very good English (+ good German and / or Italian desirable).

We offer:

·An interesting job in a young international and interdisciplinary team;

·State-of-the-art technical facilities (soft- and hardware,
communication tools);

·The contract will start as soon as possible and will be initially
issued for 6 months.
