Postdoc position available!

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!

AGU 2018

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).
