This position is within the project TOSCA (Towards an Optimal-estimation-based Snow Characterization Algorithm) funded by the German Science Foundation and it is available for three-year period (starting as soon as possible).
PhD work description and requirements: the PhD student based in Bonn will work at radiative transfer computations and sensitivities studies for snowy scenarios and he will develop a prototype ice hydrometeor retrieval for the A-train constellation.
Any knowledge/skill in microwave radiative transfer, retrieval algorythm development, radar/radiometer/satellite data analyses, will be an advantage. Salary: 50% Bat IIa (around 1000 euros/month, netto)
