I’m delighted to have received an Oxford Fell Fund grant (2020-2022) and will shortly start advertising an 18-month 50% FTE computational postdoc starting ~April/May 2020 to work on hydroclimatic extremes & flood nonstationarity.
Programming skills (R/Python) required.
Please email me if interested!

Our paper: Berghuijs, W., Harrigan, S., Molnar, P., Slater, L., Kirchner, J., The relative importance of different flood-generating mechanisms across Europe, has just been accepted in Water Resources Research (doi: 10.1029/2019WR024841)
Contact us via ResearchGate (here) for further details or if you would like a copy.
Our paper – Neri, A., Villarini, G., Slater, L.J., Napolitano, F. (2019) On the statistical attribution of the frequency of flood events across the U.S. Midwest – has just been published in Advances in Water Resources
We have just heard that our NERC/ESRC/DFID proposal on ‘Financial planning for natural disasters: the case of flood risk in Central Java’ was successful.
We will soon be advertising a two-year senior Research Associate (Postdoctoral) position to work on Flood risk and Financial planning (with me), starting early in 2018. Please do get in touch if you are interested. Advanced programming (R or Python) and GIS skills strongly desirable!
A workshop on ‘Seasonal forecasting: Meeting User Needs’ is being held on 24th-25th January 2018 at Loughborough University (UK), co-sponsored by the British Hydrological Society, the RCUK Drought and Water Scarcity Programme, Water @ Loughborough, and Water @ Reading.
The aim of this workshop is to focus on the seasonal forecast needs of users and practitioners, and to identify ways of improving the dissemination, uptake and operationalisation of seasonal forecasts by the water and agricultural sectors.
Confirmed speakers include:
- The EFAS seasonal forecasting system (Louise Arnal, European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts)
- Advancing the science behind operational seasonal forecasting: the Hydrological Outlook UK (Jamie Hannaford, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology)
- Seasonal forecasting for effective water management on the canal network (David Mould, Canal & River Trust)
- Seasonal weather forecasts and British farming (Ceris Jones, National Farmers’ Union)
- The Global Flood Awareness System (Rebecca Emerton, Water @ Reading University)
- Ensemble projections, scenarios and forecasts: operational assessment of water resources prospects (Richard Davis and Karen James, Environment Agency)
- Improving seasonal drought forecasting for user-decision making: The IMPETUS, EdGE and ENDOWS projects (Shaun Harrigan, Simon Parry, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology)
Abstract submission: Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are welcomed. Please send your abstract (up to 300 words) including title, authors and affiliations to SeasonalForecasting@lboro.ac.uk by Friday 15th December 2017.
For more information, please email: SeasonalForecasting@lboro.ac.uk
