Postdoctoral positions on the economic impacts of flooding and flood resilience at the University of York

An exciting project is looking for two enthusiastic researchers who, along with an interdisciplinary team, will push the limits of our understanding of the direct and indirect economic costs of flooding on SMEs across Yorkshire and the Humber, as well as to understand the actions that SMEs can take to effectively reduce their flood risk.

This is an iCASP-funded project in collaboration with West Yorkshire Combined Authorities, the Environment Agency, insurers, lenders, brokers, and surveyors. This project seeks to achieve significant impact by working closely with key stakeholders to improve their understanding regarding SMEs’ direct and indirect economic impacts and the property flood resilience measures that they can take to be better prepared for flooding events. The researchers will also collaborate with the York City Council in the Pathfinder project ‘Yorkshire Future Flood Resilience’.

Apply now! The closing date is 10 February 2020. For more information:
