Dear colleagues,

Technische Universität Berlin in cooperation with the German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ offers an interesting position in GNSS Meteorology. The candidate will participate in exciting research to pioneer next generation operational GNSS Meteorology data products. Please find information below and attached a document with more detailed information.


With kind regards wishing a great summer

Research Scientist GNSS Meteorology EG13, 3 years, full time, start as soon as possible 

The Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) is coordinating the research project AMUSE (Advanced MUlti-GNSS Array for Monitoring Severe Weather Events), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). AMUSE is aiming at improving the forecast of strong precipitation events in Germany in cooperation with the German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ and the German Weather Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst, DWD). Data of a regional GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) network, consisting of more than 300 stations will be analysed for this purpose and atmospheric data products as atmospheric propagation delays or vertically integrated water vapour are provided for appropriate weather situations to the DWD for specific impact studies. 

GFZ and TUB have long-term experience with the processing of GNSS data for atmosphere sounding and operational provision for assimilation to numerical weather forecasts. AMUSE is focused on the recent challenges in this field: derivation and application of GNSS based atmospheric gradients and slant propagation delays to the satellites of all existing Global Navigation Satellite Systems (Multi-GNSS) under consideration of Real-Time aspects. The project work is executed in cooperation with the GFZ Section 1.1 "Space Geodetic Techniques" and the German Weather Service (DWD).

We look for a motivated and talented scientist for this challenging GNSS research. It was originally designed as PostDoc project. However with appropriate experience of the candidate in GNSS data analysis the excepted innovative project results can also be utilized as base for a PhD thesis in the field of GNSS and/or meteorological research.
