Pubblicato da in Offerte di lavoro ·
IUSS  Pavia offers a postdoctoral position for research activity in Physics/Meteorology.

Holistic approach for the RISK assessment of natural disasters
The selected candidate will be part of a research project of the Centre of Excellence “IUSS 2018-2022 – Line 1”, “Holistic approach for the assessment of natural disaster risk and critical infrastructure  resilience”. Furthermore, s/he will contribute to the work of the  inter-university research centre on climate change and its impact, supported by “IUSS Pavia”, “Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna” and “Scuola Normale Superiore” of Pisa.   
His/her contribution could include:
  • The definition of  procedures that could be applied to evaluate risks linked to different  types of natural disasters (floods, extreme precipitation events,  droughts, …);
  • The application of  numerical models and post-processing codes to evaluate the impact of  climate change on risk factors linked to natural disasters;  
  • The development of models to evaluate the resilience of complex structures, including critical ones;
  • The identification of sustainable actions that could mitigate risks;
  • The evaluation and/or  the development of innovative approaches that could lead to risk  transfer, including financing and insurance instruments;
  • The application of innovative statistical models, e.g. linked to machine learning, to analyse and extract valuable information from huge amounts of data;
  • The development of methodologies to take uncertainty into account when estimating the risk linked to rare events.
Applicants must hold a PhD in Meteorology, Climatology, Natural Hazards, Extreme Events or equivalent.
The  value of the fellowship is € 24.426,00 gross for 12 months with the  possibility of extension for further years subject to satisfactory  progress.
The application must be submitted through the online form available at https://pica.cineca.it/iuss/assegni-sts-2019-02/

The deadline for the application is the 10-02-2019, 23:59 CET.
