The School of Geographical Sciences is seeking to appoint a Research Associate for a 2 year position to work on extreme drought projections for the UK. The Research Associate will be working as part of a team of hydrologists, hydrogeologists, climate scientists and social scientists led by Dr Gemma Coxon as part of the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship ‘Projecting extreme droughts in rapidly changing human-water systems’.
This post presents an exciting opportunity to work on a global water challenge with an energetic interdisciplinary team and high potential for impact. There will be a strong focus on career development for the successful candidate with opportunities and funding available for training, placements with project partners such as the Met Office and international research visits.
