An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Principal Environmental/Groundwater Modeller to join the BGS Environmental Change, Adaptation and Resilience (ECAR) challenge area to work with our world-leading team of researchers in environmental modelling.
BGS Environmental Modellers undertake a broad range of research across topics relating to the terrestrial water cycle. We also develop modelling products and tools, and provide services and advice to governments, regulators, industry, and the wider public to underpin decisions on how the environment and groundwater is sustainably managed now and in the future.
As a Principal Scientist, you will support a portfolio of environmental modelling projects, provide leadership, project management and modelling expertise to existing BGS projects as well as developing new research ideas and collaborations and bids for grants and commercial contracts.

Experience of project management (including budgetary management) and the leadership of challenging and/or change situations are all essential.
The post involves extensive team working; therefore, you should be able to work effectively with others, in a strong multidisciplinary environment, and have very good time management skills.
While we welcome both international and national applications, having experience of UK environmental/groundwater systems would be highly desirable.
