Postdoctoral Fellow in Extreme Precipitation Projection

Application Deadline: 29 April 2019

The successful candidate’s main task will be to project future changes in extreme precipitation in Eurasia and North Africa after bias-correction of the newest generation of CMIP model simulations. A Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences is required, and the candidate must be from a Eurasian or North African country and possess a basic knowledge of the study region. Good English writing and speaking skills are essential, and native English speakers from these countries are preferred. The position is funded by The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) President’s International Fellowship Initiative, PIFI, a program designed to attract talented foreigners to CAS for scientific exchange and research cooperation.


Research scientist / Post-Doc in remote sensing and ecosystem analysis

Application Deadline: 12 May 2019

This position will primarily enhance existing research excellence in the School of Geosciences through high profile publications and impactful research resourced from externally-funded projects. The aim is to build on existing expertise in the School through large scale hydrological observation and modelling approaches with an explicit link to water security issues.


Research Scientist/Post-Doc Position in Remote Sensing and Ecosystem Analysis

Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

The Institute of Bio- and Geosciences, Agrosphere (IBG-3) at the Research Centre Julich in Germany seeks a research scientist or post-doc to work on its Digital Agricultural Knowledge and Information Systems (DAKIS) project. The position includes surveying of spatio-temporal crop patterns in agricultural cultivation, workflow development and optimization of techniques for the estimation of soil parameters, and more.


Ph.D. Position in Remote Sensing

Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

The Institute of Bio- and Geosciences, Agrosphere (IBG-3) at the Research Centre Julich in Germany seeks a Ph.D. candidate to work on its OrganoRice project, which aims to support the production of organically produced rice in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam.

The successful candidate will analyze the current land use in the Mekong Delta by utilizing data obtained by the Copernicus program, in particular the Sentinel-1 SAR system. This includes also the estimation of biomass and growing stages of rice.


Postdoctoral Research Staff Member – Cloud Processes Research

Application Deadline: Unknown

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to investigate the interactions between atmospheric convection and surface climate over the Central United States. The prospective candidate will use available observations to assess how well convection permitting models simulate atmospheric convection and its impact and dependence on surface conditions. This position is in the Cloud Processes Research and Modeling group in the Atmospheric, Earth, and Energy Division (AEED).


Postdoctoral Researcher – Atmospheric Modeling

Application Deadline: Unknown

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join a multidisciplinary team developing state-of-the-art multiscale atmospheric and Earth system simulation methods for a variety of energy, environmental, and national security applications. You will work with leading scientists and engineers in wind energy, wildfire, and atmospheric dispersion in the creation and development of novel methods to apply Earth-system simulation techniques across scales using high-performance computing. You will have opportunities to work on model development, model validation, and scientific discovery tasks in support of these efforts, and to expand your skills by collaborating with expert staff in advanced computation, machine learning, and statistics. This position is in the Energy group within the Atmospheric, Earth & Energy Division (AEED).
