The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow UK, is offering a Research Associate/Fellow in Multi-hazards position.
The MEDiate project aims to develop a decision-support system for disaster risk management by considering multiple interacting natural hazards (including floods and droughts) and cascading impacts using a novel resilient-informed, service-oriented and people-centred approach that accounts for forecasted modifications in the hazard (e.g., climate change), vulnerability/resilience (e.g., aging structures and populations) and exposure (e.g., population decrease/increase).
The Research Associate/Fellow will lead contributions to the work packages “Assessment of current and future multi-hazard interactions and cascading impacts” and “Co-development with decision-makers of a multi-hazard disaster risk decision-support system” in collaboration with partners across Europe. In particular, the Research Associate/Fellow will be responsible for characterising and communicating cascading impacts of multi-hazards and contributing towards implementation of multi-hazard scenarios within the disaster risk decision-support system that is being developed in MEDiate. In addition, the Research Associate/Fellow will provide close support to the planned implementation of the decision-support system within the project testbed applications. Finally, the Research Associate/Fellow will contribute to other aspects of the MEDiate project where required, e.g., through reviewing deliverables.
The deadline for application is Monday, 4th December 2023.
