Detail information about job Post-Doctoral Researcher. Terms and conditions vacancy

Project Description:

The latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that the warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and predicts that future changes in climate may lead to increased risk to critical infrastructure. The CIViC project (Critical Infrastructure Vulnerability to Climate Change) aims to quantify potential climate related increases in risk for Irish critical infrastructure, with a view to reducing future vulnerability through climate adaptation. The project has three main components: 1) Critical infrastructure and climate hazard mapping, 2) high-level national risk and adaptation assessment, and 3) a detailed probability-based risk assessment, which will examine an element of the Irish energy infrastructure network.

Role of Researcher:

The postdoctoral researcher will join a highly dynamic, international research team performing leading research in climate adaptation engineering, probabilistic assessment, and GIS modelling. The researcher will primarily be based in University College Cork (UCC), but will work with academics from Trinity College Dublin, NUI Galway, and the University of Newcastle, Australia.

The following are the primary desirable candidate criteria:

  • A PhD in Engineering or similar discipline.
  • Strong engineering and analytical skills.
  • A background in GIS would be highly advantageous.
  • An understanding of statistics/statistical modelling.
  • Backgrounds in probabilistic modelling, quantitative risk assessment, structural reliability, climate adaptation engineering, or wind/structural engineering would also be an advantage.
  • The successful candidate will be fluent in both written and spoken English.
  • The primary duties for the post will include numerical modelling, GIS mapping, risk analysis, and project co-ordination. Publishing of papers in high-ranking academic journals will be a high priority.

    Post duration: 14 months.

    Salary: €36,488-€43,394 p.a. (IUA Salary Scale).

    Project: EPA Funded CIViC Project.
