The University of Coimbra offers one research grant to work on the Project “CENTAUR - Cost Effective Neural Technique for Alleviation of Urban Flood Risk”, with the following characteristics:
Number of grants: 1
Type of activity: The project focus on the investigation and development of optimal sensor and flood
control device networks to control urban water systems in real-time, aiming at reducing pluvial flooding in urban areas.
You will be part of the interdisciplinary research project CENTAUR (“Cost Effective Neural Technique to Alleviate Urban flood Risk”), where we collaborate with researchers and practitioners from Sheffield University (UK), EAWAG (CH) and industry partners from UK, Germany and Portugal.
The main tasks include the development of new hydraulic models and techniques to model real-time control devices. Monitoring, data aquisition and calibration of models. Elaboration of reports and scientific publications.
Financial support: H2020
Applicant profile: PhD degree in Civil Engineering (Hydraulics and Water Resources), Environmental Engineering, Computer Science.
Location: Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Sciences and Technology of University of Coimbra.
Duration: 12 months
Renewal: Eventually renewable
Scientific Orientation: Nuno Eduardo da Cruz Simões; José Alfeu Almeida de Sá Marques.
Financial conditions: The amount of the scholarship is 1.495,00€, paid at the end of each month by bank transfer, plus social security (seguro social voluntário, first level contributions) and a personal accidents insurance.
Regime: The attribution of the scholarship does not generate or entitle a relation of a legal-labour nature, it is undertaken in an exclusive dedication regime and the fellow is granted with the Fellow Statute of the University of Coimbra, according to the Regulation of Research Grants of the University of Coimbra.
