This NERC funded post is available from 3 January 2022 to 2 January 2024 to participate in the research project: “EVOFLOOD: The Evolution of Global Flood Hazard and Risk”, which will investigate the controls on future changes in global river morphology and flood conveyance capacity.
You will have a background, skills and knowledge in geomorphology, hydrology and/or environmental science appropriate for undertaking spatial data analysis and numerical modelling of fluvial and catchment processes.
The post will involve working with a team of national and international collaborators as part of the broader EVOFLOOD research project, which is a 5 year NERC funded initiative that includes researchers at 9 UK institutions. The successful applicant will focus on numerical modelling of catchment processes (sediment delivery to rivers and channel evolution), and will liaise with a team of project investigators, postdoctoral researchers and project partners to generate, manage, analyse and exchange large spatial datasets. The post will also involve disseminating results in research publications and at national and international conferences; and engaging in impact activities.
