Applications are invited for a joint NERC, ESRC, TRF (Thai Research Fund) funded Post-Doctoral Research Officer to study the vulnerability of Thailand’s shoreline and coasts to hydro-meteorological hazards, including storms, floods and coastal erosion, under future climate change scenarios. The project that will seek to characterise recent and present coastal geomorphological processes in different coastal environments under different hydrometeorological scenarios including mass movements in river catchments, flood responses and deposition/erosion at the coast; model the impacts of these events under future climate change scenarios and assess vulnerability and resilience of coastal communities to storm events.

You will be joining an international multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary team with the task of improving scientific understanding of the vulnerability of Thailand’s shoreline and coastal communities to hydro-meteorological hazards, including storms, floods and coastal erosion, under future climate change scenarios. Tasks will also involve assisting with a fieldwork program in Thailand including mangroves, upper catchment forests and dune ecosystems. A research record in geomorphology is desirable, as is knowledge of basin scale sediment dynamics, remote sensing, and 210Pb/137Cs dating techniques.  The post will be based at the University of Brighton with some work conducted at the University of Sussex and candidates must also be willing to undertake fieldwork in Thailand.

The School of Environment and Technology is an academically nurturing environment, committed to the Athena Swan principles of gender equality and family friendly.  The successful candidate will be offered the opportunity to join the Centre of Excellence in Aquatic Environment, and able to take part in our doctorial and post-doctorial training programmes, including attending conferences and networking oppotunities.
