OFFER DESCRIPTION

Maynooth University are seeking to recruit a post-doctoral researcher to work in Dr Niamh Cahill’s research group. The candidate will work on a project titled “Predicting Sea Levels and Sea Level Extremes for Ireland”. The project, which will run for 3 years, aims to exploit existing methodologies for estimating current and future sea-level extremes and to expand upon them in order to produce state-of-the-art, accessible software packages and a web-application that will aid in the estimation and interpretation of the variability in Irish sea-levels and sea-level extremes in the past, present and future.

The candidate is expected to develop statistical models that provide estimates and projections of extreme sea levels (ESLs) considering the influences of mean sea-levels under different climate scenarios. Model development will require the use of Bayesian methods, spatial methods, and extreme value methods. The candidate will also contribute to the development of a user-friendly web-application, interactive maps, R software and databases.
