Title: Forecast of landslide intensity from remote sensing techniques and numerical modelling

A Post-doc fellowship is available financed by the Initiative of Excellence / University of Strasbourg in order to implement a prototype tool to forecast landslide intensity from the assimilation of remote sensing observations and numerical modelling. The objective is to analyse the statistics of rainfall-controlled landslides (number, size, deformation pattern) for specific regions and triggering events and to develop a hydrological – mechanical model to estimate landslide properties from meteorological forecasts. The post-doc position will require strong expertise in remote sensing techniques (optical, radar), advanced statistics, and numerical modelling.

Please note that the official application deadline is 2018, June 15, so interested applicants should establish contact as soon as possible.
