I’m recruiting a Senior Researcher in Flood Prediction with interests in statistics, machine learning, hydrology and climate to start in October 2021 for 2 years!
Apply by 29 July
Please reach out if any questions. Skills in statistics/RStats/Python desired.
Some of the outputs include (full list on Barbara Downes’ webpage):
- Lancaster J., Rice S.R., Slater L., Lester R.E. and Downes B.J. (2021) Hydrological controls on oviposition habitat are associated with egg-laying phenology of some caddisflies. Freshwater Biology
- Dwyer, G.K., Cummings, C.R., Rice, S.P., Lancaster, J., Downes, B.J., Slater, L. and Lester, R.E, Using fractals to describe ecologically-relevant patterns in distributions of large rocks in streams (in revision)
*Update: due to exceptional personal circumstances, I have had to withdraw my participation as a speaker at the AGU this year*

Update: Our review paper, ‘Using R in hydrology: a review of recent developments and future directions‘, has been accepted, and excitingly is the most downloaded paper in HESS in the last 12 months! (https://www.hydrol-earth-syst-sci.net/most_downloaded_recent.html)
The PDF can be downloaded here: https://www.hydrol-earth-syst-sci.net/23/2939/2019/
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)

I’m excited to present two papers at the AGU Fall meeting in Washington D.C. in December this year –
- One hydrology paper: Slater, L.J., Anderson B., Blum, A., Archfield S., Attribution of changes in hydrologic extremes to changing land cover, AGU USA → session H51L: The Role of Data in Understanding and Attributing Changes in Hydrologic Extremes (Friday 14 December, 08:00 – 10:00; H51L-1446)
- One geomorphology paper: Slater, L.J., Khouakhi, A., Climate modes of variability and fluvial response over interannual to multidecadal timescales → session EP52B: Signatures of Climate Change in Surface Processes I (Friday 14 December, 11:20am, 147A; EP52B-05)
And our exciting session on ‘Flooding and Geomorphology‘:
- Advances in Incorporating Geomorphology and Flooding: Feedbacks and Impacts on Flood Risk Posters (Monday 10 December, 08:00 – 12:20, Poster Hall A-C; EP11E).
Our paper –
Neri, A., Villarini, G., Salvi, K.A., Slater, L.J., and Napolitano, F. On the decadal predictability of the frequency of flood events across the U.S. Midwest
– has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Climatology.
Very nice mention of our short course in this month’s edition of Circulation (the British Hydrological Society’s magazine):
