Flood Innovation Centre
Mapping the gaps: research into effective post-flood support
Building on its international standing in flood research, the University of Hull has established the Flood Innovation Centre (FIC) to provide a hub for research and innovation focussed on flood risk and resilience. The £3.4m Centre is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and based within the University’s Energy and Environment Institute. It supports small and medium sized enterprises to innovate flood resilience, mitigation, management and response solutions.
The University has recently been awarded additional funding from the Aviva Foundation to undertake research into the effectiveness of post-flood recovery and support and now seeks an excellent research colleague with a relevant PhD to join the team and take the central role in delivering this project:
Researcher (ref AE0210) ‘Mapping the Gaps’: a research partnership to investigate effective post-flood support focussing on the Humber region as a pilot case with the aim to be extensible across the UK in future research and implementation. The work will support efforts to bridge theory and practice in flood risk management and flood resilience. The research explores flood resilience and flood vulnerability, communicating flood risk, and governance arrangements through mixed-methods approaches that incorporate both qualitative and quantitative data collection methods.
The position is fixed term as outlined in the Job Description, with the possibility of extension subject to funding and project requirements.
