We invite applications for a postdoctoral research fellow (33 months) in enhanced ecohydrological modelling in a urban system perspective. The position is part of the project Urban Water Interfaces UWI, which is an interdisciplinary research training group funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). It involves engineers and natural scientists. UWI is developing innovative links between empirical methods, experiments (laboratory and field) and models (conceptual and numerical) to describe the dominant interface processes in urban water systems on different scales of space and time as well as across scales.
We seek a dynamic, motivated and ambitious scientist to join an existing interdisciplinary science and modelling team on Landscape Ecohydrology to support the evolution and growth of coupled hydrological-ecohydrological modelling in urban systems. It is expected that the modelling will utilise existing data sets from instrumented research sites across Berlin. The successful candidate will have experience in the development and application of numerical models for different purposes, across various scales and environmental science contexts. The successful candidate should be experienced in combining process-based understanding with strong numerical / computational skills. Experience with programming is essential. Expertise in remote sensing & data assimilation and / or incorporation of tracers into hydrological models would be advantageous. Access to high-performance computer clusters is available to facilitate use and development of “state of the art” research models.
