PhD position

PhD Position in Remote Sensing and Modelling of Polar Clouds

Are you a researcher aspiring to obtain a PhD degree and interested in working with satellite data and climate models? Then this might be a great job opportunity for you!

You will start the project with writing code for a fast and seamless on flight track comparison of EarthCARE observations with climate model data. This code will be published as open source, supporting international collaborations. Next, you will improve the representation of clouds in our regional climate model RACMO using the first year of EarthCARE data, in combination with existing observations. In the second half of the project, you will use the expanding set of EarthCARE observations to assess and publish the first accurate cloud climatology over Greenland and how clouds impact the surface mass balance of the Greenland Ice sheet.
