The two-year post-doctoral research position is sought as part of the newly funded joint research project of The Research Council of Norway entitled: New water ways - towards water-sensitive and climate-adapted Nordic cities (NFR Project #270742). The Project Owner is Norwegian Institute of Water Research (NIVA), Norway and University of Oslo is one of the main partners. The primary objective of "New Water Ways" project (consists of 5 work packages) is to spur the transition from traditional urban water management (UWM) to sustainable water-sensitive and climate-adapted UWM by assessing the social, economic and environmental implications of different infrastructure solutions, combinations of those and management strategies at multiple spatial scales. The specific aim of the work-package 3, where the post-doc is allocated at, is to develop an integrated model to assess the social, environmental and economic consequences of a future water-sensitive and climate-adapted UWM in comparison to traditional water management (baseline).
