Anuncio de las XXXVI JORNADAS CIENTÍFICAS DE LA AME – Granada Noviembre 2020

La Asociación de Meteorología Española (AME) anuncia sus Jornadas Científicas anuales,  que este año, como cada dos, coincide con el Encuentro Hispano-Luso de Meteorología.

El tema este año es “Servicios Climáticos en la Península Ibérica“.

Estos eventos constituyen un foro de gran valor para el intercambio de conocimientos en meteorología y climatología con los científicos del país vecino, Portugal.

La celebración del evento se alterna entre España y Portugal y este año nos toca a los españoles albergarla. La ciudad que la acogerá será Granada y las fechas elegidas son del 9 al 11 de Noviembre de este año.

PhD Position in the Field of Climate and Environmental Sciences

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and its Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Department Atmospheric Research (KIT/IMK-IFU) at Campus Alpin in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany is looking for a

 PhD Candidate in Climate- and Environmental Sciences

 to fill a three-year position from 1st of April 2020 on (or earliest convenience).

 The position is available within the BMBF-funded cooperation project ClimXtreme (Impact of human water use on atmospheric extremes in regional climate simulations) with cooperation partners from Research Center Jülich (IBG-3) and the University of Bonn.

The objective is to understand occurring and possible future frequency- and intensity changes of extreme weather events in Central Europe, such as heat waves, droughts, heavy precipitation, hail and strong winds. The effects of extreme weather and climate events on natural and socio-economic systems will be analyzed. The specific aim of this PhD research is to investigate potential and magnitude of anthropogenic water use (e.g. groundwater abstraction and irrigation) to influence the large-scale atmospheric circulation and the formation, duration and intensity of heat waves and droughts.

 The main work tasks for the position are:

  • Analysis and evaluation of CORDEX and further European climate simulations by means of extreme value statistics and divergence analysis
  • Downscaling of global atmospheric models with the WRF and WRF-Hydro model system and analysis of the joint atmospheric-terrestrial water cycle
  • Specific model development for groundwater abstraction and irrigation interaction.

 To be successful the potential candidate needs:

  • An outstanding MSc in environmental- or natural sciences (e.g. meteorology, hydrology, climate sciences, physical geography), or environmental engineering
  • Proven knowledge of statistical methods
  • Proven knowledge about atmospheric dynamics and atmospheric modeling, preferably with the WRF-modeling system; knowledge about hydrological modeling
  • Proven programming skills in, e.g., Fortran, Python, R, or Matlab
  • Knowledge of UNIX/Linux and HPC systems including scripting
  • Good communication skills (writing and speaking) in English

 Please send your detailed application electronically and in one pdf-file to until 1st of March 2020 latest.

The position remains open until a suitable candidate has been selected.

KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this position. With appropriate qualifications, applications from handicapped persons will be treated with preference.

10-month scientist position on climate and renewable energies

(From University of Murcia)

Climate-related challenges constrain a rapidly evolving energy sector. Ambitious climate change mitigation requires that low-carbon energies grow very fast in the coming decades. This rapid transition towards renewables makes the energy production, transmission and distribution increasingly sensitive to weather and climate variability.

In this context, the Regional Atmospheric Modeling group of the University of Murcia
( is offering a 10-month scientist position for studying the links between climate and renewable energies (wind and solar) under present and future scenarios: large-scale climate drivers (transitory weather types, well identified patterns such as the NAO), impact of misunderstood but relevant phenomena (such as aerosol-radiation-clouds interactions); and how these links can be used in advantage of the societies for the design of smart deployment strategies.

The candidate will work within the context of two supporting national projects (CLIMAX and EASE) in a collaborative environment with international partners (LSCE and IDL), assessing already available global and regional climatic datasets and electricity supply and demand data at the European level.

This work will require a climate and statistical scientific background, PhD or MSc. Most analyses will involve the use of statistical theories and methods, and will require good programming skills (R, fortran, shell & CDO scripting) and familiarization with typical data formats (netcdf) and plotting utilities (GMT, gnuplot); all under LINUX environments. An understanding of climate models and simulations is required, as well as an interest in communicating research to the scientific community and beyond (in fluent English).

The selected candidate will be hired by the University of Murcia for a duration of 10 months (with some possibility of extension for a few more months) with a net monthly salary depending on the experience. Murcia is a manageable place in southern Spain (near the coast), with good weather and good food, where the living costs are certainly cheap. Still, flexibility with tele-working can be considered.

The position should start before March 2020.

Applications should be sent as soon as possible. They should include a CV and the names of two references (including their e-mail addresses). Applications should be submitted by e-mail to Sonia Jerez (
