*PDRA in Data Assimilation for Urban Flood Inundation Modelling *

Full-time, fixed term (up to 48 months), Department of Meteorology, 
University of Reading

We seek an enthusiastic research scientist for a postdoctoral research 
position, funded by the EPSRC project "Data Assimilation for the 
Resilient City" (DARE). Data assimilation (DA) is an emerging, 
mathematical technique fusing complex computational models with 
heterogeneous observations. The objective for the post is to use 
advanced DA to create a step-change in skill for numerical predictions 
of urban flooding. The post holder will undertake research in data 
assimilation for flood inundation modelling, using synthetic aperture 
radar data alongside datasets of opportunity such as smartphone 
photographs and CCTV.

You will have:

- a PhD or equivalent experience, in a quantitative physical science, 
engineering or mathematics.

- Strong analytical and problem solving skills

- Ability to write and adapt computer programs.
