Dear colleagues,
I am pleased to share with you that applications to the following postdoctoral opportunity are now open at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of Florence:

“Machine learning for climate sciences” (3-year contract extendible up to 6 years). The work will be conducted within the Horizon Europe SPARCCLE project. We look for applicants with a strong background in math/stats/physics/machine learning. A background in climate science is NOT needed.

Link to the research position:  (English version at the bottom).

Application deadline: 6 November 2023.
Contact person: Giovanni Forzieri (
I would greatly appreciate your support in actively spreading the word among your colleagues, collaborators, students and targeted networks.

Apologies for cross-posting
Many thanks and warm regards,

Research activity
The researcher will explore the spatial and temporal variations of societal vulnerabilities to climate extremes at the global scale. For this scope, the researcher will develop novel methodologies by integrating climate datasets, Earth observations and geospatial socioeconomic statistics within an artificial intelligence framework. The combination of these elements will provide an enhanced understanding of the vulnerability dynamics and underlying mechanisms in response to global changes. Outcomes of the research activity will contribute to the identification of hotspot areas highly vulnerable to climate extremes and to the definition of effective adaptation strategies, ultimately contributing to foster the transition to a climate-resilient development.
