Postdoctoral Research Associate - Water Resource Systems Modelling for Drought Risk Assessment, School of Geography and the Environment, Oxford, UK
The Environmental Change Institute (ECI) is leading a major research project “MaRIUS: Managing the Risks, Impacts and Uncertainties of droughts and water Scarcity” within the UK Droughts on Water Scarcity Programme. MaRIUS is an interdisciplinary project examining the impacts of droughts from economic, social and environmental perspectives.

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate who will work with us to develop and demonstrate new water resources systems models for drought risk assessment at catchment and national scales.

The successful candidate will have experience of implementation, and ideally also design and development, of water resources system models. You will have a flair for the development of innovative system modelling solutions. You must have a Doctorate and excellent programming skills, demonstrated through the implementation of system models, and ideally also experience of distributed computing and advanced visualisation. You will have a sound understanding of probabilistic risk analysis, uncertainty analysis and decision analysis and preferably also innovative experience of applying these methodologies in the context of water allocation, hydro-economic and water infrastructure planning decisions. The postholder will be expected to publish their research work in the international academic literature. You will be expected to participate enthusiastically in the multidisciplinary MaRIUS research consortium, including engagement with project stakeholders in government and industry.

This is a fixed-term post for 24 months in the first instance.
