Job Announcement: Scientists, Computational Ecology and Environmental Science Group, Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK

The goal of the research carried out within the Computational Ecology and Environmental Science Group (CEES) is to advance the science of ecology toward the point where it can make useful, quantitative predictions about populations, species, communities and ecosystems. Our research spans a broad range of areas in ecology and environmental science, with all, ultimately, focused on developing new kinds of global models, including but not limited to models of the carbon-climate feedback, other biogeochemical cycles, and global ecosystem function. Therefore, permanent scientists in CEES will have the freedom to pursue their own scientific agenda, but also be highly interested in working cooperatively as part of a team of inter-disciplinary scientists in a way that cuts across traditional ecological sub-disciplines, and enables us collectively to achieve our ambitious longer-term goals. Potential CEES scientists should also be interested in contributing to an important CEES goal of developing new computational tools to make this kind of research possible, and sharing these tools with the scientific community. We are open to applicants from a wide range of disciplines including but not limited to ecosystem science, behavioural ecology, eco-physiology, soil science, population and community ecology, and Earth System science. For more information see http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/groups/ecology/default.aspx  .

If you might be interested in joining us, please contact the head of CEES, Dr Drew Purves ( dpurves@microsoft.com ) or any other member of CEES, for more information (please include ‘scientist’ in the subject line). We will begin review of applications on February 16th. Microsoft Research offers a competitive salary and benefits package and flexible working opportunities.
