1 Postdoc position for 3 years

The PostDoc-position is focussed on multi hazard and risk assessments and is planned to facilitate, enlarge and implement the integration of results from different ongoing and finalised PhD-projects within NatRiskChange. In particular, this project aims at developing a theoretical and methodological framework for the analysis of hazards and risks caused by compound or cascading events preferably within one of the key regions of NatRiskChange, i.e. Germany, the European Alps, the Mediterranean or the Himalayas. Starting from the impacts, important drivers and processes are to be identified and integrated in a risk model. The model should address two or more hazards from the following disciplines: meteorology, hydrology, geomorphology and seismology, and should also include aspects of vulnerability and exposure. The successful candidate will be based at the Institute of Environmental Science at University of Potsdam.

We are seeking applications from highly motivated Post-Doc scientists with a strong background in statistics and/or process modelling in meteorology, hydrology or geomorphology, proven by a related PhD. The applicant should be experienced in processing large observation data sets and simulations as well as their statistical evaluation. Fluency in the English language (speaking and writing) as well as willingness to work in an interdisciplinary team, including co-operations with international university groups, re-insurance companies and international administrations are essential.

Please read the detailed job description. Applications can only be submitted in one single pdf file (max. 10 MB) to Marlis Patzelt (patzelt@uni-potsdam.nomorespam.de ).Deadline for applications is 17th September 2018.
