The School of Geographical Sciences is seeking to appoint a full-time pathway 2 Research Associate in Climate Risk Analytics. The appointment starts in January 2024 or as soon as possible. The post has funding for 12 months as part of the NERC-funded UK Centre for Greening Finance and Investment (www.ukcgfi.org). The role holder will engage with Financial Institutions to undertake research into combined flood and windstorm risk in Europe. The postholder will join the hydrology research group and be line managed by Professor Paul Bates CBE FRS.
What will you be doing?
The primary activity of the candidate will be to collaborate with the research group of Professor Len Shaffrey at the University of Reading to produce a catastrophe risk model for combined flood and windstorm events. This will be based on discovering correlations between high wind speed and rainfall/river flow and then coupling existing flood and windstorm models at Bristol and Reading to allow these to be represented. You will also be expected to write up results for publication in leading international peer-review journals and collaborate with project partners in the risk modelling, insurance, banking and finance sectors.
