We seeking to recruit a PDRA in Palaeofire Analysis to join the dynamic research team of the Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society, an exciting and ground breaking joint initiative of Imperial College, Kings College, Royal Holloway and the University of Reading. The Palaeofire PDRA will be responsible for the analysis of changes in fire regimes in response to past environmental and climate changes, using large-scale data synthesis and fire modelling. The main responsibilities of the PDRA will be the collection and analysis of relevant palaeodata sets.
