Job description

2-Year Post-doctoral research fellowship

Space-time downscaling of rainfall extremes
Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering
The University of Padova
Contact: marco.marani@unipd.it

Work in an interdisciplinary research group involving Marco Marani (lead, at the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering – University of Padova), Marco Borga and Carlo Gregoretti (Department of Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry, UniPD), Antonio Canale (Department of Statistics, UniPD), Francesco Marra (National Research Council, Bologna), Giorgia Fosser (IUSS, Pavia). Focus is on novel statistical tools to infer local-scale (~point to 1 km scale) and short time scale (10 min- 1hr) extreme value statistics from Convection-Permitting and Regional Climate Model rainfall outputs (2.5-50 km in space and 1 day in time), as well as from remote sensing rainfall estimates.
