Vegetation Modeller

Based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed vegetation modeller to join 
our successful research team based at Wallingford. The team maintains and 
develops the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES, 
http://www.jchmr.org/jules/ ). This community model has a wide variety of uses 
including climate modelling and impacts.

The primary roles of this open-ended post will be to:

1. Evaluate and develop biophysical and ecosystem dynamical modules within the 
JULES land surface model

2. Explore feedbacks between vegetation and climate, regionally and globally

3. Produce papers in the peer-reviewed scientific literature and at 
international conferences detailing major research findings

4. Contribute to the overall development of the JULES model for the UK land 
surface community

The focus of the research is improving the representation of vegetation within 
the JULES land surface model across different ecosystems. Key areas for current 
development are the linkages between Nitrogen and Phosphorus and the carbon 
cycle, and the representation of ecosystem dynamics. The research is 
predominantly funded by the European Union and the Natural Environment Research 
Council.
