The Research Group Snow Hydrology in Davos investigates the dynamics of snow water resources and snowmelt in alpine watersheds. We are offering a fully-funded PhD position within the SNF project ”Improved methods for incorporating observational data into physics-based, multi-layer snow models” starting on October 2020.
You hold a master’s degree in environmental physics, earth system sciences, or a similar field; or you hold a master’s degree in statistical science or mathematics with an interest in physically based snow models. You must possess or develop the required knowledge to be versatile at applying different data assimilation techniques dependent on data availability and modeling objectives. You are well organized and operate independently in a structured and efficient manner. You appreciate working as part of a motivated, interdisciplinary team, which operates at the interface between science and practice. You have excellent oral and written communication skills in English. German language skills would be valuable.
