[Met-jobs] Postdoc, Atmospheric Physics, Medical University Innsbruck

Dear colleagues, 

for the research group Solar Radiation and Air Quality at the Division for
Biomedical Physics, Medical University Innsbruck, we are seeking a 

Postdoctoral research assistant.

We are involved in various scientific activities related to solar
radiation, operate the Austrian UV measurement network and are currently
preparing an ACTRIS central facility for trace gas remote sensing. The group
cooperates closely with the company LuftBlick operating the Pandonia Global Network,
a joint effort of the European and American space agencies (ESA and NASA), opening
up opportunities to engage with a top-level community of atmospheric scientists
around the world.

This is an exciting
opportunity for a passionate scientist to join a young, vibrant
research group in the beautiful alpine city of Innsbruck, Austria.

For more details, please consider the attached job announcement.

Kind regards,

Axel Kreuter

[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoctoral Research Positions -Soil and River Geochemistry

Dear Colleagues,

Two postdoctoral positions are available for collaborative research in – a) soil organic matter dynamics and b) aqueous geochemistry
of metals in rivers that is to be conducted in the Arequipa region of Peru. 
Purdue University and the Universidad Nacional de San Agustin (UNSA) in Arequipa, Peru have partnered to form
the Arequipa Nexus Institute for Food, Energy, Water, and the Environment (Nexus Institute), which,
over the course of this multi-year, multi-disciplinary partnership, will investigate key environmental, land use, agroeconomic, and social challenges limiting the development of adaptive,
profitable, and sustainable food-energy-water systems in the Arequipa Region of Peru. 


            The two successful candidates, part of a cohort of 23 new postdoctoral
researchers to be hired within the Nexus Institute in 2018-2019, will investigate soil and river sediment dynamics from the Andean terraced region to the desert lower elevation environments that are under intensive irrigation.  The research will emphasize
the following:  a) the biogeochemical controls on soil organic matter stabilization/destabilization in desert, flood plain, and terraced systems, b) measurement and modelling of the speciation and transport of metals from legacy mines and naturally eroded
ore deposits, and c) metal organic matter interactions in water, soil, and sediment.  Experience in stable isotope tracers and organic geochemistry will be necessary for this position. 


            Candidates for this position should have completed their PhD, or should expect to complete their degree by the start date, in geochemistry, biogeochemistry,
soil science, environmental engineering, or a related relevant program.  Scientific or technical fields providing training in geospatial data analysis are desired.  Candidates interested in this position should have a record of scientific achievement, excellent
verbal and written communication skills, and an interest in working in an international and interdisciplinary environment geared toward investigating problems related to environmental sustainability.
Spanish language skills are highly desirable. While the postdoctoral positions are based at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA the successful candidates will be expected to engage in field and laboratory work in Peru, primarily in the Arequipa region,
for extended, multi-week periods of time.  Initial appointments are for 1-year starting as early as mid-January, 2019 with potential renewal for a second year upon review. 


Applicants should supply (a) a curriculum vitae (b) a statement of research interests and goals (maximum 2 pages) and (c) e-mail address
of three references to: Timothy Filley – Filley@purdue.edu.  
Application review will begin immediately.


Note:  I will be at the Fall AGU meeting in Washington D.C. and can set up interview times there.

[Met-jobs] PhD Studentship: Advanced methods for assimilating satellite data in numerical weather prediction

methods for assimilating satellite data in numerical weather prediction 

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated student for a
fully funded PhD studentship, based at the University of Reading, to commence in September 2019.  The studentship is funded through the
Scenario NERC DTP.

Brief description of PhD project: The significant value of assimilating satellite data in numerical weather prediction relies on our ability to correct biases
in the data before it is assimilated. However, in order to quantify the bias in the observations it is often assumed that the forecast model itself is unbiased. Unfortunately this is rarely true and is becoming a limiting factor in the use of satellite data.
This project will develop new mathematical techniques for performing bias correction that are able to distinguish and correct for biases in both the observations and model.
This is of significant importance for the continued advancement of weather predictability.

Supervisors: Dr Alison Fowler and Dr Amos Lawless (University of Reading and National Centre for Earth Observation), and Dr John Eyre (Met Office)

Training opportunities: This studentship is a joint project with the Met Office. The student will have the opportunity to spend time working at the Met Office over
the lifetime of the project. The student will also have the opportunity to attend ECMWF training courses on data assimilation and advanced training courses at Reading organised by the Data Assimilation Research Centre.

The deadline for applications for 2019 entry is 25
January 2019. If you are interested in knowing more about this project, please contact
a.m.fowler@reading.ac.uk for further information.
