PhD position at the Hebrew University

Postby erantas » Tue Dec 14, 2021 8:15 am

The position is offered for a PhD candidate to perform and analyze WRF simulations, as part of a funded project which focuses on the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum to improve irrigation and fertilization prediction, by improving evapotranspiration and precipitation forecast, combined with remote sensing and soil modeling improvements. In a previous study (https://journals.ametsoc.org/view/journ ... 0160_1.xml) we have demonstrated that evapotranspiration forecast can be significantly improved by a bias correction using meteorological measurements. In this project we wish to improve this methodology and use the results as input to a sub-surface water and nutrient flow and transport model to approach the project's objectives.

***Requirements:

* A Bachelor's degree in engineering or natural science or physical geography, preferably with a significant * component of atmospheric sciences
* Computer programming skills
* Data analysis (statistics, numerical analysis, time series analysis, etc.) skills
* Very good oral and written proficiency in English

* Experience in atmospheric modeling (e.g., WRF) is an advantage
* Publications in international journals is an advantage

***Application instructions:

Applications shall be written in English and be compiled into a PDF-file containing:

résumé/CV, including a list of publications
a general description of past research and future research interests (up to one page)
contact information of at least two references
copy of the certificates &GPA/grades 1st and 2nd degree.
The application should be sent to Eran Tas (eran.tas@mail.huji.ac.il)
