PhD Graduate Research Assistantship
1 PhD Graduate Research Assistantship (3 years) at Institute for
Geosciences and Meteorology , University of Bonn
Within the Research Unit “New Refined Observations of Climate Change
from Spaceborne Gravity Missions (NEROGRAV)”, the following projectis open:
High-resolution atmospheric-hydrological background modelling for
GRACE/GRACE-FO – regional refinement and validation
The project aims at the generation of a consistent global data set of
atmospheric and hydrological mass variation with fine temporal and
spatial resolution over Europe from the GRACE and GRACE-FO satellite
missions. The project focuses on improving the under-standing of
atmospheric mass redistribution and the errors of model simulations,
and investigate the sub-monthly variability in the terrestrial and
atmospheric hydrological cycles.
Details reg. the R.G. NEROGRAV can be found here
We expect strong interest in the following fields:
– hydrological and atmospheric sciences
– statistical-dynamical modelling
– interdisciplinarity, e.g. geodesy, satellite gravimetry and geophysics
Potential candidates with expertise in hydrological and/or atmospheric
modeling and/or statistical-dynamical modelling are encouraged to apply.
Experience in FORTRAN, C, Python and R statistical programming is highly
desirable. We offer a competitive position (75% TV‐L E13, 36 month),
excellent benefits, a productive, interdisciplinary working atmosphere
including comprehensive supervision.
Interested candidates should send a complete application package (CV;
cover letter describing background, training and research interests;
certificates; contact information of two references) as a single PDF to
Dr. Petra Friederichs (pfried@uni‐bonn.de). The position is expected to
commence in June 2019. Review of applications will begin immediately and
continue until the position has been filled.
Equal employment opportunity: Selection for these positions will be
based solely on merit without regard to gender, religion, national
