The University of Reading invites applications for a postdoctoral

research position, funded by the EPSRC project “Data Assimilation for the Resilient City” (DARE) –

( Data assimilation is an emerging mathematical technique for

improving predictions from large and complex forecasting models, by combining uncertain model

predictions with a diverse set of observational data in a dynamic feedback loop. As we move towards the era of exascale computing, a key issue is the ability to

process large volumes of uncertain observation data efficiently to improve predictions of natural hazards such as storms and floods. The research undertaken by the post

holder will develop new methods, , using ideas from fast multipole

methods,  initially in an idealized system, to underpin quantitative use of a diverse

range of large observation datasets.


Closing date 4 September
