Date Mon, 10 Jun 2019 11:09:02 +0000

The University of Reading invites applications for a postdoctoral research assistant to develop and evaluate machine learning techniques for processing observations of weather and flooding from datasets of opportunity, such as river cameras.   The goal of the project is to use Data Science tools and techniques to create a step-change in skill for numerical predictions of urban natural hazards. The research undertaken by the post holder will underpin quantitative use of urban observation data from diverse sources such as citizen science, crowdsourcing and internet of things. The successful candidate will be based at the University of Reading, Department of Meteorology but with close contact with colleagues in Computer Science.


Closing date for applications: 19 July 2019
