POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN ENSEMBLE PREDICTION FOR HYDRO-METEOROLOGY

Place: National Centre for Meteorological Research – Research group of atmospheric meteorology (CNRM-GAME), Toulouse, France (http://www.cnrm-game.fr/)

Application deadline: 5th May 2013

Starting dates/duration: start between July and November 2013 / 12 months.

Background:

This position is related to the DISTRIBUTED RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE FOR HYDRO-METEOROLOGY (DRIHM) project (http://www.drihm.eu/) funded by the European commission. DRIHM intends to develop a prototype e-Science environment to facilitate the collaboration between meteorologists, hydrologists, and Earth science experts and provide end-to-end hydro-meteorological research (HMR) services (models, datasets, and post-processing tools) at the European level, with the ability to expand to global scale. The objectives of DRIHM are to lead the definition of a common long-term strategy, to foster the development of new HMR models and observational archives for the study of severe hydro- meteorological events, to promote the execution and analysis of high-end simulations, and to support the dissemination of predictive models as decision analysis tools.

10-MONTH ENGINEER POSITION AT CNRM-GAME – HYMEX REANALYSIS

The National Centre for Meteorological Research (Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques),
CNRM-GAME, METEO-FRANCE and CNRS, is offering a position to an engineer specialized in the development
of software engineering applied to meteorology.

Location: Météo-France CNRM-GAME, Toulouse
Coordinators: Nadia Fourrié and Mathieu Nuret

Context: The HyMeX programme seeks to improve our understanding and modelling of the water cycle in the Mediterranean, with an emphasis on the predictability and the evolution of intense events (http://www.hymex.org). In the frame of HyMeX, a strong effort will be devoted to observation and modelling, especially during Special Observation Periods (SOPs). For the western Mediterranean domain, these SOPs will be held during the Autumn 2012 and Spring 2013. A high-resolution atmospheric (2.5 km) AROME_WMED forecast model atmospheric (2.5 km), a special version of AROME for HyMeX, will be implemented for these two SOPs. It will be initialized from an analysis assimilating different types of observations (operational and experimental observations). Leer más de esta entrada
