PDRA in Data Assimilation for Urban Flood Inundation Modelling
Full-time, fixed term (up to 48 months), Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK

We seek an enthusiastic research scientist for a postdoctoral research position, funded by the EPSRC project "Data Assimilation for the Resilient City" (DARE). Data assimilation (DA) is an emerging, mathematical technique fusing complex computational models with heterogeneous observations. The objective for the post is to use advanced DA to create a step-change in skill for numerical predictions of urban flooding. The post holder will undertake research in data assimilation for flood inundation modelling, using synthetic aperture radar data alongside datasets of opportunity such as smartphone photographs and CCTV.

You will have:

- a PhD or equivalent experience, in a quantitative physical science, engineering or mathematics.

- Strong analytical and problem solving skills

- Ability to write and adapt computer programs.
