A 2-year postdoc position at the University of Genoa (Italy) is open in "Meteorological radar, lidar and satellite data processing for thunderstorm classification and analysis".

According to Task B and F of WP1 "Thunderstorm detection" and WP2 "Thunderstorm analysis" of the European Project THUNDERR (www.thunderr.eu), the candidate is asked to develop an automated procedure for thunderstorm detection in the Ligurian Sea based on meteorological radar, lidar and/or satellite data and images recorded since 2018. The database of thunderstorm events detected through this procedure, cross-checked with other available meteorological data (e.g. reanalyses, ligthning strikes, ground station measurements), will be used to classify the weather scenarios in which thunderstorms occur and to study the geometrical and kinematic characteristics of their downdraft outflows (downbursts).
