Job description

  • Setup data processing and microphysical retrievals of a remote sensing station (Cloudnet algorithms). You will visit Leipzig, Germany, for several weeks to be supported by the ground-based remote-sensing group at TROPOS.
  • Develop real-time analysis of cloud radar RHI-scans to guide the in-situ measurement platforms to the seeded patch.
  • Participate in multiple field campaigns in the winter months, where stratus clouds over the Swiss Plateau are partially glaciated by glaciogenic seeding.
  • Validate the Cloudnet synergetic remote sensing retrievals of microphysical properties of these stratus clouds by using in-situ measurements on the tethered balloon.
  • Your profile

  • PhD (or equivalent) in atmospheric / environmental science, physics, engineering, or a related field.
  • Sound knowledge of the English language, both orally and written, is expected.
  • Experience with processing of remote sensing data (preferably Cloudnet data) is highly recommended.
  • Experience in developing remote sensing retrievals, especially microphysical retrievals will be an advantage.
  • Motivation to work in the field in rough conditions (at night).
  • Good communication and time management skills, as well as a willingness to participate in a collaborative and supportive research environment.
