PhD position within experimental meteorology, focus: precipitation measurements

Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), Campus Ås, Norway
Closing date: 1 June 2022

The Faculty of Science and Technology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has a vacant PhD position related to precipitation measurements within the field of experimental meteorology. The PhD position is for a period of 3 years, or up to 4 years if teaching and other work duties are agreed.

This PhD research project aims at the development of a more accurate precipitation measurement product in challenging weather situations.

The successful candidate will analyse existing measurements, performing own observations and work on combining products from the different sensors, utilizing the strengths and different information contents of those sensors, thus compensating for the weaknesses of the individual measurement methods depending on the weather situation.

In addition to analysing existing datasets from several stations in Norway, dedicated field campaigns are planned, which will use the facilities of NMBU and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

Application deadline: 01.06.2022
