IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Goscientific data processing and visualization, Germany
Modern marine science is based on data from a variety of scientific sensors and instruments. These data may be time series, depth profiles, point observations, or maps of various multi-dimensional parameters. In the framework of a joint project of MARUM and Alfred Wegener Institute, we aim at the development of elaborated data workflows from raw instrument data formatting and conversion- to ad hoc visualization and data base storage up to scientific analysis and presentation.
The project will join experts from different projects and involves intensive communication with data collectors, data base operators and providers of data portals. Starting with hydro acoustic data acquired by Multi-Beam Echo Sounders (MBES) and Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP), we will develop robust processing procedures to be applied within the field of oceanography, in particular shelf sea and coastal research.
We are searching a highly motivated and skilled candidate with the following requirements:
• Completed FH graduate, BSc or equivalent degree, preferentially in
engineering, informatics, physics, or closely related fields.
• A strong mathematical background and very good skills in scientific
computing and visualization of data (MATLAB, GMT, ARC GIS), and data
base management are required.
• Experience in the field of handling large data sets.
• Interest in ship based geoscientific field work.
Applicants should have excellent English language skills and enjoy working in an international and interdisciplinary team. Knowledge of the German language is beneficial.
The position is limited to one year, with a possible extension of two more years with a starting date of Jan 1st 2014. Salary may correspond up to German employee scale TV-L E12. Applications should include a CV, a list of projects / publications, a statement describing the technical background as they relate to the position, and contact information for two referees.
As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female employees in science, women are particularly encouraged to apply. To encourage parents to work in academia (e.g. after a parental leave), most positions are offered with a part-time option.
In case of equal personal aptitudes and qualification priority will be given to disabled persons.
Deadline for the application is November 15, 2013.
Further enquiries and applications should be directed electronically with the reference number A229/13 to Dr. Christian Winter
