VN 20/01 Research Fellowship FUSEDCAST_ZAMG

The Research Fellow will join the remote sensing team within the NWP department at ZAMG. The candidate will develop a severe weather nowcasting prototype application based on a fused data approach. With MTG FCI and LI (and precursor data until MTG data are available) together with other data sources, notably NWCSAF, radar and NWP, a machine learning based algorithm will be developed to predict severe weather. Data mining techniques will be applied to determine the parameters which contribute most to the nowcasting algorithm which will be based on a deep learning technique. The ultimate goal is to identify convective cells at an early stage, follow their development and estimate the severity level they may reach. 

The candidate will work closely with experts on NWCSAF, radar processing, machine learning and remote sensing at ZAMG.

LOCATION

ZAMG (Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik), Hohe Warte 38, Vienna, Austria

QUALIFICATIONS

The Fellow should have a university degree in Physics, Mathematics, Meteorology, Remote Sensing, or equivalent.

  • Statistical evaluation of the model, optimisation and tuning of the algorithms;
  • Publication and presentation of results (conferences, meetings, journals);

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

  • Experience in satellite data analysis and/or machine learning is desirable.

  • Good knowledge of scientific programming (C/C++, Python) and experience with statistical packages (e.g XGBoost, Keras, scikit-learn etc.) are significant assets.
