Postdoctoral Research Position in Flood Inundation Modelling, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada. The successful applicant will develop a probabilistic framework for flood inundation modelling and risk assessment in a changing climate. The project requires processing and analysis of large datasets including ground-based and satellite observations as well as global and regional climate model simulations, setting up hydrologic and hydrodynamic models with different complexities, and developing/improving state-of-the-art statistical techniques for regional frequency analysis. The ability to take initiative, work independently and mentor graduate students are critical. The qualified candidate should have a PhD degree in engineering, hydrologic science or a field relevant to flooding. Knowledge and experience with hydrologic and hydrodynamic models, ArcGIS and computer programming (such as MATLAB, R and Python) is required. To apply please send a cover letter, CV, contacts for three references, and a proposal summary (describing existing challenges in flood modelling and research plan; 500-1000 words) to mnajafi7@uwo.ca. The appointment will have an expected term of one year, extendable to two years, with an ideal start date of Feb 1, 2018. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
