2-Year Post-Doc Opportunity In Water Resources Systems Analysis, Modeling And Control via EGU

Politecnico di Milano

Milan, , IT

Job description

The Environmental Intelligence Lab, Dept. of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering, at Politecnico di Milano invites applications for one postdoctoral position in the broad field of water resources systems analysis, modeling and control for a period of 2 years.

The position is part of the project “ADDApt: designing adaptation measures to contrast climate extremes in subalpine river basins”. ADDApt is an interdisciplinary project advancing the state of the art of robust climate adaptation design in multi-sector water engineering systems. The focus of ADDApt is on:

1. Many-objective tradeoff analysis of the water-energy-food nexus;
2. Robust and flexible design of adaptation measures;
3. Machine learning for detection/prediction of climate extremes.

Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in water resources engineering, hydrology, or a related field of environmental engineering. Alternatively, candidates having a background in machine learning, applied mathematics and automation and control are also encouraged to apply. The successful candidate is experienced with water resources system operation design, multiobjective optimization, real time control of water resources systems. Strong numerical and computational skills are required as well as English language skills both in oral and written communication.

How to apply

The application package must include CV, list of publications, and the name of two references.
For informal enquiries please contact Professor Andrea Castelletti [email protected]

Deadline for the package submission: 2nd February 2020
