The Institute for Geophysics and Meteorology (IGMK), University of 
Cologne, Germany invites applications for a

*PhD position (3yrs, 75%) on Radar Remote Sensing of Ice Microphysical 
Processes**in Clouds*

*Overall objective of the PhD project:*We seek a talented student who is 
enthusiastic about unraveling ice microphysical processes in clouds 
utilizing novel combinations of state-of-the-art ground-based radar 
remote sensing techniques such as radar polarimetry, Doppler spectra, 
and multi-frequency radar. You will have the opportunity to take active 
part in field campaigns including novel polarimetric cloud radars at our 
research supersite JOYCE close to Cologne (www.joyce.cloud). You will 
also have the chance to frequently exchange your observational findings 
with our excellent modeling partners (U. Cologne and German Weather 
Service) in the project. This will allow you to develop strategies how 
the observed fingerprints can be used to evaluate and guide new 
developments of ice microphysical parameterizations.

*About the position and working environment:*The PhD position is 
embedded inthe project PROM-IMPRINT (“Understanding Ice Microphysical 
Processes by combining multi-frequency radar polarimetry and 
super-particle modelling”) as part of the DFG Priority Programme 2115 
„Fusion of Radar Polarimetry and Numerical Atmospheric Modelling Towards 
an Improved Understanding of Cloud and Precipitation Processes“ (PROM, 
see https://www2.meteo.uni-bonn.de/spp2115 for more information). The 
position is part-time (29.87 h per week/ 75% position) and salary is 
based on the German TV-L E13 scale if terms and conditions under 
collective bargaining law are fulfilled. The PhD student will become 
part of the Young-Researcher (Emmy-Noether) group OPTIMIce at IGMK 
(https://www.geomet.uni-koeln.de/optimice.html). Additional training 
opportunities are also offered within the Graduate School of Geosciences.

*Application and Requirements:*Please send your convincing application 
including a motivation letter describing background, training, research 
interests and motivation for this position; your CV, certificates and 
contact information of two referees all _merged into a single PDF_ via 
email to skneifel[at]meteo.uni-koeln.de. Only complete applications can 
be considered. A Master’s Degree (or equivalent) in Meteorology, 
Geosciences, or closely related field is required for this position.

*Review of applications will begin after 30**^th **April 2019 and 
continue until the position is filled. Start Date of the position: July 

The University of Cologne promotes equal opportunities and diversity in 
its employment relations. Women are expressly encouraged to apply and 
given priority in accordance with the Equal Opportunities Act of North 
Rhine-Westphalia (Landesgleichstellungsgesetz – LGG NRW). We expressly 
welcome applications from individuals with severe disabilities or people 
of equivalent status. Severely disabled applicants of equal merit and 
qualifications will be given priority.
