Post Doc Position at Lund University


Lund University, department of physical geography and ecosystem science

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 4o 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.

Lund University is ranked among the top 100 universities in the world. Lund University GIS Centre at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science is one of the world’s leading katedraions in the field of Geographical Information Science. Besides strong scientific networks in Sweden, the centre has extensive international networks in Europe, USA, Africa, Middle East and Australia. LU GIS Centre is and has been involved in several national and international projects funded or supported by e.g EU, Swedish research agencies, Sida, and international organizations such as WHO. The research groups active at the GIS Centre cover a multitude of research areas that also connect to Physical Geography and Ecosystem sciences, engineering and social sciences. Among them one group focus on Geographical Information Science in hydrological modelling, flood and disaster management. The aim of this call is to employ a researcher with a very high scientific competence to join this research group.

Tasks
The researcher will work closely with other researchers in a team. The main responsibilities will be:

  • to analyze and model watershed hydrology with impact in areas with a variety of land uses and land covers. There will be an emphasis on urban areas, but some catchments with mixed land uses (a mosaic of forest, agriculture, and urban) are of interest as well.
  • to test and evaluate different hydrological and hydraulic models, both commercial and research models
  • to develop GIS and spatial methods for urban flood impact estimations. Methods should facilitate collection, modelling and analyses of data for flood and disaster management planning and decision-making in municipal use.
  • to evaluate the shortcomings of present modelling schemes in order to direct future research of modelling strategies
  • to develop methods in the interface of modelling and GIS applications to facilitate the communication of spatially distributed flood impacts with different bodies in the society.
  • to develop methods in the interface of modelling and GIS applications to improve the representation of terrain in distributed models, and to facilitate the easy representation of GIS-based datasets (terrain and otherwise) in the landscape representation used by distributed models.

Qualifications
The applicant shall have a PhD in hydrology, geographical information science, geomatics engineering or hydrologic engineering.

She/he must have very good knowledge in:

  • advanced hydrologic and hydraulic modelling
  • spatial analysis
  • computer programming for applications in both modelling and GIS environments
