Utrecht University is looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate interested in climate change and natural hazards in mountains. You will be working on a project that aims to assess the impact of climate change on debris flow and flood risk in high mountain Asia. The project aim is to investigate triggering mechanisms of debris flows and floods, assess climate change impacts on the frequency and magnitude and perform a risk analysis of cascading hazards at river basin scale.

Application closing date: 27.08.2021

As one of the leading global Integrated Assessment Modeling (IAM) teams, the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment (ECE) Program is deepening the understanding of rapid, just, and feasible systems transformations toward environmental, social, and economic sustainability. 

The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team analyzing issues around energy demand across multiple sectors in the context of climate change and broader sustainable development challenges. Their research will focus on modeling behavioral changes across buildings, transport and consumer products, socio-technical transitions and greenhouse gas mitigation.
