|| The Chair of Hydrology at Goethe University Frankfurt invites applications for a three-year position of a
for Global Hydrological Modeling
(Ph.D. student, 65% E13 TV-G-U)
Contract terminability is according to „Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz“ and „Hessisches Hochschulgesetz“. Hiring is contingent on approval of funding. The earliest starting date is 1 November 2017.
The Working Group Hydrology is a worldwide leading research group in the field of global hydrological modeling. Applying and further developing the global water resources and use model WaterGAP, a major aim is to achieve an improved assessment of human impacts, in particular climate change and water use, on the Earth’s water resources
The research scientist will participate in the international project CO-MICC, with the aim to develop, together with stakeholders, methods for providing data of a multi-model-ensemble on freshwater-related hazards of climate change to end-users so that they can utilize them for their risk assessment and adaptation measures. The researcher will carry out and analyze simulations regarding the freshwater-related hazards of climate change with WaterGAP and analyze the output of the multi-model-ensemble. In addition, the researcher will, together with a Post-Doc researcher, develop scientifically based indicators for freshwater-related hazards. Special focus will be on the uncertainties of the multi-model-ensemble. Within the project there will be three participative processes on the risks of climate change: on global, transboundary (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia) and basin scale (Ebro/Spain). To achieve these goals, you can count on the help of your colleagues and the working group leader. You will also be supported with respect to obtaining a Ph.D. on a topic of your choice within the broad field of global hydrology.
A prerequisite for hiring is a Master degree in hydrology, meteorology, physical geography, environmental science, civil engineering or a similar discipline (minimum grade of 2,0). Experience with mathematical modeling and programming and very good analytic capabilities are essential. Persons who are enthusiastic about research and enjoy working in a team would fit well into our working group.
The Goethe University is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women to apply. Candidates with severe disabilities will be given preferential consideration in case of equal qualification.
Please send your application as a single pdf file containing the cover letter (including motivation and fit), curriculum vitae, certificates and the contact details of two references to Prof. Dr. Petra Döll until 19 September 2017 (firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel. 069/798-40219, http://www.uni-frankfurt.de/45217668/dl).
