Research Fellow in Socio-Ecological Systems Modelling

The James Hutton Institute - Informational and Computational Sciences

The James Hutton Institute is an international research centre based in Scotland, focusing on some of the world’s most challenging problems including the impact of climate change and threats to food and environmental security.

This is an exciting three-year Research Fellowship to expand our activities in sustainability science, with particular focus on investigating ways to implement the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) in Scotland and globally. The position comes with generous start-up costs, and the Fellow would be considered for a tenured position subject to successful progress.

We are seeking highly-motivated candidates with a strong background in sustainability science, with particular experience in modelling coupled human and natural systems. You will have a PhD in an appropriate subject and a demonstrable record of publication in scientific journals and winning research income. You will also have computer programming expertise and good communication skills. Experience in agent-based modelling would also be advantageous.

This post will be based at the Aberdeen site, but there may be a requirement to travel between sites on occasions.
