The Hydrometeorology Lab (https://hydrometeorology-lab.huji.ac.il/) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, seeks a postdoctoral scholar with expertise in large river flood modeling. The position is held at the Hebrew University (the lab is a part of the Institute of Earth Sciences) and in collaboration with Google’s flood forecasting team. The research involves standard hydrological modeling approaches and advanced statistical approaches including machine learning tools. The target will be global, with a special focus on data-scarce regions.
We seek for a post-doc with expertise in large river flood modeling. Experience with satellite precipitation data processing is an advantage. The candidate must have a strong computing/programming skills and a strong record of publications in international journals. The position is planned for at least one year with an extension option, depending on the progress. Start date is flexible, but earlier dates are preferred.
