We are seeking a Hydrological Data Scientist to join a research team which manages and analyses hydrological UK data, working on various high-profile projects including the UK National River Flow Archive https://nrfa.ceh.ac.uk/, National Hydrological Monitoring Programme and Hydrological Outlooks. 

The NRFA is the UK’s focal point for hydrometric data, providing stewardship of data for over 1500 river gauging stations. These data are taken on from the UK Measuring Authorities (e.g., the Environment Agency), and then quality-controlled, archived, and disseminated to a large community of users. 

The post will also support a wide range of other projects, for example with data management and secretariat responsibilities. Current projects include a UK consortium of public bodies for observation of the environment, and an international network of river flow gauging stations to assess the effects of climate change on trends in global river flows. 

Main Responsibilities 

  • Support the acquisition, quality control and dissemination processes for the UK National River Flow Archive, the UK's focal point for hydrometric data
  • Process and undertake quality control of incoming river flow submissions from the UK hydrometric Measuring Authorities at the national scale, while also taking on a "regional representative" role within the NRFA, overseeing the data and metadata stewardship for gauging stations for a region of the UK
  • Contribute to the activities of the National Hydrological Monitoring Programme - producing monthly Hydrological Summaries and Outlooks for the UK, analysis of extreme events, trend analysis of hydrometeorological data - and its wide range of outputs (reports, blog posts, briefings, peer-reviewed papers)
  • Process and undertake quality control of incoming global river flow submission from international partners and assist in expansion of the world-wide network of river flow gauging stations
  • Provide wider data management support to the Hydrological Status and Outlooks Group, and secretariat support to various collaborative research initiatives
