Research Fellowship on the preparation of the assimilation of IRS/MTG in a convective-scale model
Météo-France CNRM, Toulouse, France
Closing date: 07 October 2018
CNRM (Meteo-France and CNRS) has obtained a EUMETSAT fellowship position for 3 years and is looking for a scientist with skills in satellite data analysis and/or data assimilation schemes. The Research Fellow will join the Observation Team of the Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) research group at CNRM (Toulouse). The Fellow’s work will be directed towards the preparation of the assimilation of radiances from the IRS (Infra-Red Sounder) instrument onboard the MTG (Meteosat Third Generation).
The main objective of the fellow’s work is to prepare the assimilation of IRS in AROME and to evaluate its impact in this convection permitting model. Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) of IRS radiances will be performed in the non-hydrostatic model AROME since they offer a framework that can lead to the readiness of operational assimilation of such data.
Please note that only nationals of EUMETSAT Member States may apply and that applications will not be returned.
