Research Assistant / Associate in Real-time Urban Flood Risk Analytics - D157557R2

Closing date: 12/01/2019

Newcastle University, Engineering Unit are are looking to recruit an experienced flood risk modeller to develop new tools for real-time impacts analysis.  

You will use data from Newcastle University’s world-leading Urban Observatory and develop big data analytics and cloud computing techniques to understand the impacts of flooding in the urban area. You will analyse traditional and non-traditional data to improve understanding of urban flooding processes, and their impacts – including for example disruption to transport networks. You will have a PhD in a relevant subject area (or close to completion), and whilst based in the Water Group as part of the NERC funded Flood-PREPARED project, you will work closely with a team of big data, cloud computing, statistical and flood modelling experts to co-develop a demonstrator for Newcastle.

The project is affiliated with the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC), and Newcastle’s membership of the Alan Turing Institute. This post is available fixed term for two years in the first instance.

The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality.  The University also holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers, and is a member of the Euraxess initiative supporting researchers in Europe
