[ES_JOBS_NET] PhD position on Polarimetric Radar Observations, University of Cologne

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
https://ift.tt/2P62sUx 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 homepage

for further details regarding the position and how to apply.

Kind
regards,
