ECMWF: Scientist – Hydrological Modeller

Violetter Blitz

Closing date: 06 September 2016
ECMWF, Shinfield Park, Reading, UK

ECMWF has long recognised the value of high-quality forecasts in mitigating the effects of natural disasters.
Recognising that floods are among the costliest natural disasters in Europe, the European Commission instigated the development of the European Flood Awareness System (EFAS) at its Joint Research Centre (JRC). The focus of the position is on the development of the hydrological model used in EFAS and GloFAS. Currently EFAS uses the gridded LISFLOOD Rainfall-Runoff model for the European domain.
