Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (2 years): Extreme Weather and Climate Impact Attribution (Water and Agriculture), University of Cape Town


The AXA Research Chair Programme in African Climate Risk at the African Climate and Development Initiative (ACDI) at the University of Cape Town aims to (i) quantify the relative contribution of climate change and landscape management impacts of weather and seasonal climate extremes and (ii) estimate the social and economic benefit of different adaptation options to reduce the impacts these extreme events.  The initial focus of the programme is on impacts and responses in water and agricultural systems.


ACDI therefore wishes to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PDRF) in Probabilistic Impact Attribution in Hydrological and Agricultural Systems. The PDRF will be part of a multi-disciplinary team from the University of Cape Town and University of Oxford, spanning climate, hydrological, agricultural, ecological and economic and adaptation science.  He or she will be expected to lead a discrete area of research modelling the effect of different land-use practices on one or more of (i) hydrology and water security and (ii) agricultural productivity in drought events.


The PDRF will also contribute to research that integrates across climate, biophysical and socio-economic impacts.  The PDRF will work closely with counterparts in Oxford and may be required to make research visits to Oxford.
