Date Wed, 15 Aug 2018 19:34:15 +0200

The Institute for Geophysics and Meteorology (IGMK), University of Cologne, Germany invites applications for a

PhD position (3yrs) on Polarimetric Cloud Radar Observations of Ice Microphysical Processes

The PhD project is part of the project PROM-IMPRINT (“Understanding Ice Microphysical Processes by combining multi-frequency radar polarimetry and super-particle modelling”) as part of the DFG Priority Programme 2115 „Fusion of Radar Polarimetry and Numerical Atmospheric Modelling Towards an Improved Understanding of Cloud and Precipitation Processes“ (PROM, see for more information).

We seek a motivated and talented student who is enthusiastic about performing field work and data analysis of novel polarimetric ground-based radar observations of ice microphysical processes. The candidate should be eager to work together with our modelling partners in the project and to develop strategies how the observed fingerprints can be used to evaluate and guide new developments of ice microphysical parameterizations.

The PhD student will become part of the Young-Researcher (Emmy-Noether) group OPTIMIce at IGMK. Please see the attached pdf or visit our group website ( for further details regarding the position and how to apply.

Kind regards,

Stefan Kneifel
