The School of Geographical & Earth Sciences is looking to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Assistant/Associate in Numerical Modelling to contribute to/make a leading contribution to understand the interactions between climate and vegetation change, tectonics, and landscape evolution. The preferred candidate should have prior experience in the application of landscape evolution or paleoclimate/climate numerical models to understand topographic or climate change through time. Applications of either approach (landscape evolution or paleoclimate modelling) will focus on understanding how vegetation change in different ecosystems interacts with either topographic development or climate change. Prior programming experience as applied to using or modifying existing models is expected. The position builds upon existing geosystem modeling and high-performance computing facilities within the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences. The successful candidate is also expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct the research group as opportunities allow. The position is part of the Earth Systems Dynamics research group at the University of Glasgow, under the supervision of Prof. Todd Ehlers.

Appointment at grade 7 will be considered with prior postdoctoral researcher (or equivalent) experience.

Informal enquiries about the role are welcome, and should be addressed to Prof. Todd Ehlers (Todd.Ehlers@glasgow.ac.uk)
