The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), in Wallingford, UK, is recruiting a 
Research Associate in the area of global hydrological modelling.

The job is centred around the development and use of computer models that 
describe hydrology (including water resources) and biogeochemistry at regional 
and global scales. These include the JULES, Grid-2-Grid and GWAVA models. 
Although all are spatially-distributed numerical models, they differ in that 
they are designed for different applications, such as predicting country-scale 
flood statistics, assessing global water demand or quantifying 
continental-scale terrestrial carbon budgets.

The successful applicant will be part of a team developing and using the models 
for a range of applications. Although the focus is on hydrology, in a broad 
sense, the researcher can also expect to spend some time on related topics in 
the surface energy balance and carbon cycles. Evaluating the models against a 
variety of data types (e.g. river flow measurements, Earth Observation 
products, local measurements of evaporation and carbon dioxide fluxes) is an 
important part of the job. 

Further details can be found at 
http://www.ceh.ac.uk/personnel/Global-Water-Balance-Modeller.html .


Candidates will already have a PhD or equivalent research experience in 
physical sciences, mathematics or other numerate disciplines.
Desirable skills include experience of working with Unix, programming and 
knowledge of either physical land surface or hydrological processes and 
experience of manipulating large data sets.

The salary for this post is in the range £26,180 to £29,410 per annum depending 
on skills.

In addition you will enjoy a rewards package that includes access to NERC's 
public sector pension scheme, 30 days' annual leave and 10.5 days' public and 
privilege holiday per annum.
Applications are handled by the RCUK Shared Services Centre; to apply please 
visit our job board at https://ext.ssc.rcuk.ac.uk and complete an online 
application form. Applicants who would like to receive this advert in an
