Thank you for posting


Dear all


We have an opening for a 3.5 years PhD position (starting September 2020)


Currently a worldwide unique network of hail sensors is being set up in Switzerland. The sensor network will be fully operational in summer 2020. The sensors continuously record information on the presence of hail and on hail stone size distributions.  The sensor data complements information on the presence and property of hail from the operational radar network, from insurance loss data, hail forecasts, and hail reports from the general public. The aim of the project is to bring all of these data sets together for a detailed verification, further development of nowcasting applications and insurance loss modelling.


For more details please consult the attached PDF.
