University of Oxford is seeking a Senior Research Associate to work on a research project to predict multi-hazard risks in Nepal to support sustainable livelihoods. The post is funded by the UK Global Challenges Research Fund and aims to improve decision-making and preparedness in Nepal in order to mitigate the impacts of earthquakes, monsoon rainfall, and landslides.
You will focus on process-based modelling of meteorological, hydrological and geomorphological conditions that lead to landslide susceptibility using a combination of in situ observations and satellite remote sensing. You will be required to collaborate with physical scientists, social scientists, and a wide range of partner organisations in Nepal and elsewhere, including government departments, national and international NGOs, and the UN. You will contribute analysis and results to collaborative research projects on the topic of multi-hazard risk modelling. You will publish in highly-ranked, peer-reviewed academic journals and contribute to MSc teaching activities. You will be offered significant opportunities to develop innovative science-based solutions to pressing problems in geomorphology, hydrology, and overseas development.
