  • Assist with planning and coordination of collaborative workshops
  • Write regular internal reports, and external communications
  • Regularly liaise with project collaborators to ensure effective collaboration

Job Requirements

  • Ph.D. in Earth science, natural hazards, computational modelling, or a related field
  • Strong expertise in mathematical or statistical modeling and application to resilience / reliability analysis of urban systems
  • Extensive experience with programing / coding for scientific studies
  • Experience with probabilistic flood data and modeling
  • Excellent written and oral communications
  • Experience working across disciplinary boundaries is be a plus
  • Experience supervising or mentoring junior researchers is a plus
