REF: CEF-155-22 250071
The Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science is the UK’s leading and most diverse centre for applied marine and freshwater science. We currently rank in the top 5% of over 2,500 international institutes publishing in the same fields. We advise government and private sector customers in the UK and abroad on the environmental impact of their policies, programmes and activities through our scientific evidence and impartial expert advice.
The successful applicant for this post will be involved in a range of modelling activities relevant to ocean and coastal processes, delivering quantitative applied marine science for a range of national and international customers. Examples include linking catchments to coastal water quality, effects of eutrophication, blue carbon management, and assessing combined human and climate impacts on marine ecosystems. You will work closely with a multi-disciplinary team, including oceanographers, biogeochemists, marine ecologists, and fisheries scientists, so strong communication and inter-personal skills are essential.
This role provides an exciting opportunity to learn and develop within a team of experienced hydrodynamic and biogeochemical modellers. We are seeking an enthusiastic and adaptable person, with a good knowledge of numerical modelling, including programming languages and data analysis methods. You will also have a desire to expand your knowledge of modelling techniques and broader marine science applications.
The following are essential criteria required for this role and you must be able to demonstrate your skills and experience in the following areas:
Responsibilities will include running hydrodynamic and biogeochemical models, coding in a variety of programming languages (mostly Python), processing and visualising large data sets. To perform these tasks, you would be expected to make use of high-performance computing resources.
Writing reports, liaising with members of the team, and delivering to project timelines will also be an important part of the job. As such, you should have a good understanding of ocean or coastal processes and be an effective communicator.
Academic qualification required for this position would be an MSc or PhD in hydrodynamic and/or biogeochemical modelling. Alternatively, a good first degree in a numerate subject as well as relevant work experience using modelling in the field of marine or atmospheric science (e.g., marine engineering, meteorology, oceanography) would be considered.
