PostDoc position on snow/ice energy balance modelling and mesoscale meteorology (Innsbruck University)
PostDoc position on snow/ice energy balance modelling and mesoscale
The Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics (University of Innsbruck,
Austria) offers a 14 month postdoc position in the fields of glacier
energy balance modelling and mesoscale meteorology. Please see
http://www.uibk.ac.at/index.html.en for primary information on the
University, the Institute and the general environment.
Applicants are expected to continue ongoing research on spatially
distributed modelling of snow/ice surface exchange processes in Arctic
glacier environments. This will build on extended analysis of
glaciological and meteorological data collected at a Svalbard glacier
during the last years and/or output from mesoscale atmospheric models.
The position therefore calls for demonstrated meteorological background
and experience in numerical modelling. Previous work on Arctic
meteorology and/or glaciers is welcome, as well as cooperativeness to
develop research perspectives beyond the current job opening.
Funding is currently secured to support a 14 month full employment
according to national standards. Flexible distribution of work and
salary is conceivable upon mutual agreement, but extension beyond summer
2014 depends on additional funding.
Applications or further inquiries may be sent to
([hidden email]) and will be given full consideration
until January 31. Thereby please include your CV and contacts of two
