Research Fellow in Earth System Modelling, – Ref:1817989
(inclusive of London allowance)
We are seeking to appoint a research fellow position in Earth System Modelling to be held at the Department of Earth Sciences at UCL.
The ERC-funded project will adapt existing models to account for novel isotopic tracers of weathering (e.g. Li isotopes), in order to fully determine the effect of chemical weathering on climate through rapid climatic perturbations such as oceanic anoxic events (OAEs), the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), and other Cenozoic events.
The post is funded for 24 months in the first instance.
The successful candidate will have a PhD, or thesis submitted subject to examination, in a relevant branch of climate, palaeo-climate or Earth System modelling, and a strong background in using novel data in models, as well as developing novel aspects of climate models.
Please note: Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B (salary £30,922 – £32,607 per annum, including London Allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the PhD award date. If the PhD has not yet been granted, the final accepted version of the thesis must have been submitted to the degree-granting university by the start date.
