Open postdoc position on flood model development and analysis
University of Exeter, , United Kingdom
Apply before: 27 June 2022

The Centre for Water Systems, University of Exeter, UK is now looking for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow / Senior Research Fellow to work on flood modelling software development, applications and analysis. The post will be available immediately for a fixed term 24 months.

The successful applicant will focus on expanding the capacity of the Centre for Water Systems’ existing methodologies and models to simulate the flood dynamics in various natural and man-made environments more accurately and efficiently. The post will adopt parallel computing technologies, real-time rainfall and radar observations and other environmental sensing information, and numerical weather predictions to provide near real-time flood nowcasting and forecasting. The post will further evaluate flood impacts for risk-based early warning, and assess the risk under future climate and socioeconomic scenarios in order to develop solutions for climate change adaptation.
