Ecosystem Modellers (Ref PML38312)
You are invited to apply for one of three posts as an Ecosystem Modeller. You will join one of the largest and most energetic marine ecosystem modelling groups in the world and work on the development and application of marine hydrodynamic/ecosystem models, investigating the impacts of climate change and multiple stressors on marine ecosystems.
We are looking for people with relevant expertise to work in the following areas
1) Higher trophic level modelling (Zooplankton and above)
2) Biogeochemical modelling at global scales
3) Benthic ecosystem modelling
We are looking to appoint at both senior scientist and scientist level. The objective of these posts is to underpin a strategic expansion of the group with an emphasis on modelling the whole marine ecosystem including the links to man. PML has a well-developed system of coupled hydrodynamic marine ecosystem models based on ERSEM (European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model) and NEMO. You will be expected to maintain and raise the profile of the PML Modelling Group by publishing in peer reviewed journals and presenting work at high profile conferences.
You will have a background in numerical modelling or marine science, along with a PhD or a minimum of three years postgraduate research experience. In particular, we are interested in individuals who have experience in the modelling of fish and higher trophic levels, benthic ecosystems and marine biogeochemistry at global scales. Programming and computer skills will be a definite advantage, as would experience of NEMO/FVCOM hydrodynamic models, marine ecosystem models, and parallel computing.
The successfull applicants will be appointed to grade and salary range commensurate with skills and experience.
Scientist grade: £28,066 - £33,206
Senior scientist grade: £34,931 - £40, 044
