Professor of Spatial Water Quality and Aquatic Systems

Application Deadline: Unknown

The Department of Water Resources at the University of Twente is now seeking a new Professor who will have a leading role in initiating, coordinating, and executing research and education activities in quantitative earth observation of inland and coastal water systems, with a focus on spatial water quality and biogeochemical cycles and budgets. The successful appointee will focus on the development and application of novel scientific methods and approaches in quantitative earth observation of water quality (retrieval of aquatic bio-geophysical parameters – with emphasis on biogeochemical cycles and budgets).

Research Scientist in WRF Soil Moisture Data Assimilation

Application Deadline: Open until filled

The SUNY University at Albany Atmospheric Sciences Research Center invites applications for a research scientist position in Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) soil moisture data assimilation. The planned weather- and climate-relevant research will involve extensive numerical weather forecast model (WRF) evaluation and code modification to implement satellite data assimilation of NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) soil moisture retrievals. The successful candidate will:

  • Conduct WRF and NASA Land Information System (LIS) simulations
  • Carry out data analysis and visualization using Python, NCL or similar scripting language
  • Design and write creative and innovative peer-reviewed journal articles on soil moisture data assimilation and WRF configuration sensitivity in the context of short-term (9-30 h) weather (incl. wind) predictability over the U.S.
