[Met-jobs] PhD position "Simulation of turbulent transport and exchange processes in the atmospheric boundary layer over mountain regions" at the University of Trento (Italy)

The Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Trento (Italy) invites applications for one PhD position on the project "Simulation of turbulent transport and exchange processes in the atmospheric boundary layer over mountain regions" (scholarship C3).

The PhD student will work in the framework of the project “Atmospheric boundary-layer modeling over complex terrain (ASTER)”. The objectives of the project are (i) to evaluate the performance of a numerical weather prediction model in forecasting soil properties and surface and near-surface turbulent fluxes over complex terrain and (ii) to evaluate the model’s sensitivity to changes and potential errors in the turbulence and land surface parameterizations and their input parameters over complex terrain. The research activity will focus on the above objectives by performing simulations over idealized complex orography with the WRF model.

The PhD position is funded by the Euregio Fund for Scientific Research and by the University of Trento and is a collaboration between the University of Trento, the University of Innsbruck, and the Free University of Bolzano. The researcher will work closely with the members of the Atmospheric Physics Group of the University of Trento and with the other project partners.

Applications must be submitted by 23 July 2020, 4.00 PM (Italian time) only through the online application form, which can be found at the following link: https://www.unitn.it/en/ateneo/1954/announcement-of-selection
