3 PostDoc positions themed "machine learning in the field of extreme weather"

SMASH is an innovative, intersectoral, career-development training program for outstanding postdoctoral researchers from any where in the world, centered on developing cutting-edge machine learning applications for science and humanities.

SMASH is looking for postdoctoral researchers who come from any part of the world with ideas for ambitious projects in one or more of the program's research topics. SMASH fellows will enhance their research excellence and boost their career prospects by becoming a member of a strong, internationally renowned team and through personal mentoring, tailor-made training programs, and secondments to some of the world's most prominent institutions, they will shapen their skills and enhance their research excellence. Fellowship support will include generous allowances for living, mobility, family, research, and travel.

The Slovenian Environment Agency (Ljubljana, Slovenia, with a possible secondment stay at University of Liege, Belgium) will host 3 postdoc fellows, developing machine learning methods for extreme event forecasting in

  1. oceanography (1 position);
  2. hydrology (1 position); and
  3. meteorology (1 position).

Applicants interested in machine-learning modeling of extreme weather at Slovenian Environment Agency (from convective storms to flash floods and storm surges etc.) are most welcome to contact their team of supervisors (hydrology: saso.petan@gov.si, meteorology: benedikt.strajnar@gov.si, oceanography: matjaz.licer@gov.si) prior to application submission to maximize synergies between their proposal and key research areas.
