A Post-doc position on the ERC-Starting Grant projectSHExtreme(Estimating contribution of sub-hourly sea-level oscillations to the overall sea level extremes in changing climate) will open within the next couple of months. 

Coping with a sea-level rise, induced by climate change processes, is one of the most important challenges of modern society. It has been projected that, by the end of the 21stcentury, the mean sea level (MSL) will rise between 40 and 60 cm worldwide. Higher MSLs imply that flood risks associated with extreme sea levels (ESLs) will also increase, with the 100-year return levels of extreme events along European coasts projected to increase between 50 and 90 cm by the 2100. ESLs occur due to a superposition of numerous oceanic phenomena that act over different temporal (from seconds to millennia) and spatial scales (from bays to oceans). Within the SHExtreme project, the contribution of under-researched sub-hourly sea-level oscillations to the ESLs along the European coast will be studied. High resolution 1-min sea level data measured at more than 100 tide gauge stations, as well as reanalysis, hindcast, and future simulations, will be analyzed to achieve project goals: (i) assessing the present-day distribution of sub-hourly sea-level oscillations and estimating their contribution to the overall ESLs; (ii) linking sub-hourly ESLs to typical synoptic conditions; (iii) estimating future strength and distribution of ESLs related to sub-hourly sea-level oscillations. Project SHExtremes will result in the first a comprehensive estimate of intensity, frequency, and spatial and temporal distribution of present and future-day sub-hourly ESLs along the European coasts. 


A possibility for post-doc research includes a variety of topics, depending on qualifications of the post-doc, ranging from the development of theoretical models, data oceanographic and meteorological data analysis, through numerical modeling up to the analysis of climatological models and hazard and risk assessment studies. 

This is a two-year position, but with a possible prolongation till the project end (in 2025). 
The project is hosted by the Faculty of Science, at the University of Splithttps://www.pmfst.unist.hr/.

If you are interested in the position, please contact the project PI Jadranka Sepic at jsepic@pmfst.hr
