    Two PhD positions in hydrological modelling and climate impact research

    Company
    Institute of Geography, University of Bern

    Workplace
    Bern, Switzerland

    Description
    In the framework of the project "ccHydro", detailed investigations are planned to assess the possible effects of climate change on the water balance of Switzerland. On the one hand, these investigations concern process-oriented analyses of existing records; on the other hand, the potential of today's temporally and spatially distributed models will be used to find answers to the questions raised.

    In two sub-projects, we offer a PhD position each:

    The first sub-project aims at identifying Swiss catchments which react particularly sensitive to altered climatic and environmental conditions. Amongst other tasks, this involves coupling the Hydrological Modelling System PREVAH with climate scenarios which will be provided by the ETH Zürich. Furthermore, detailed studies are planned in selected catchments to investigate possible effects of climate change on flood discharges; this also includes scenarios of changing glacier and forest area extents.

    The second sub-project deals with the effects of climate change on low flows. Starting at a process-oriented analysis of the present state in selected catchments, a model specifically suited for low flow conditions is to be developed. With this model, sensitivity analyses will be conducted to investigate the effects of climate and land use changes on low flows.

    Education
    Master degree in Geography, Hydrology or Ecology/Environmental Sciences
    Further requirements Sound hydrological understanding, interest in developing and applying hydrological models, experience in spatial analysis with GIS (ArcGIS) and in statistics (R), interested in performing interdisciplinary work; knowledge of German advantageous; motivated and a very good team player

    Start
    January 1, 2009 or by arrangement

    Duration
    3 years

    Bado hujazeeka mkuu, (Juzi tu Julai 15 umetimiza miaka 55). Mwenzako alipata Shahada ya kwanza kutoka chuo kikuu huria akiwa na miaka 63, wewe bado mtoto kwake.
