With this message I would like to invite applications for a 3-year
PHD-position in the field of hydrological modelling to be filled 1st
November 2022 in the Working Group "Alpine Climate and Water Research"
(ACWR) at the Institute of Geography, University of Innsbruck (Austria).
The successful candidate will use a physically-based hydrological model
to assess climate change impacts on the hydrosphere (e.g., discharge and
snow conditions) in a river catchment in the Tyrolean Alps (Austria).
The candidate is expected to already have strong expertise in
distributed hydrological modelling with physically-based open-source
models (e.g., the WaSim, GeoTop, WRF-Hydro or LISFLOOD model). She/he is
further required to be fluent in the German language, as work in the
project requires a frequent exchange between the PHD-candidate and local
partners from the non-scientific community. Due to the large amounts of
data to be handled in the project, experience in automated processing
(e.g., using Python or R and/or the netCDF operators from CDO or NCO) is
considered a prerequisite.
Salary is based on the standard rates for doctoral candidates and 30h
per week as applied by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF, see https://www.fwf.ac.at/en/research-funding/personnel-costs
The deadline for application has been extended to 7th October 2022,
all applications should be sent in PDF format to: thomas...@uibk.ac.at
As we strive to increase the proportion of women working in our group,
women are particularly encouraged to apply for this position.
Thanks for your interest and best regards,
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Thomas Marke
(ACWR Working Group Leader)
