Research Scientists

National Oceanography Centre (NOC), Southampton & Liverpool

About the roles:

We are seeking five excellent Research Scientists with high potential to
work within, and across, five discipline-based research groups within
our Directorate of Science and Technology.

The National Oceanography Centre is the UK’s national research
organisation delivering integrated marine science and technology from
the coast to the deep ocean, and is one of the top five institutions of
its kind in the world. NOC is at the vanguard of international marine
research, tackling the major global environmental research issues and
translational impacts to benefit society (

We provide an exciting, dynamic and outstanding research environment
supported by research scientists, technologists and engineers. The
facilities include super-computing facilities, world-class analytical
laboratories and access to our global marine observation infrastructure
including robotic underwater vehicles and oceangoing research vessels.

About you:

You will have a strong research background and be seeking the
opportunity to further develop your research career through scientific
publications. You will be able to actively participate in the
development and funding of collaborative research programs, both at a
national and international level, and have a desire to become a future
leader in your field. It is essential to have a PhD in a relevant area,
or equivalent experience.

We are seeking candidates with expertise in the following areas;

• Oceans and Extreme Weather Modelling

High-resolution climate modelling to understand the role of the ocean in
high impact weather events

• Coastal Ocean Biophysical Modelling

Fine-resolution shelf seas modelling integrating physics, ecosystems and
sediment dynamics

• Particle Flux Oceanography

Advance organic sinking particle flux research within the context of the
global carbon cycle

• Zooplankton Ecology

Advance zooplankton research as part of ocean biogeochemical cycles
linking primary production to higher trophic levels

• Sea Level Science

Advance understanding regional sea level processes using both theory,
remote and in situ observations, and numerical models

• Arctic Physical Oceanography

Advance observation and modelling of Arctic shelf-basin exchanges and
implications for ice and ocean circulation and fluxes

• Geoscience on Seafloor Fluid Flow

Advance understanding of seafloor fluid flow, especially at high
latitudes, including greenhouse gas flux, geochemical processes and
potential impacts on slope stability

• Geoscience on Human Impacts on the Deep Seafloor

Advance research across disciplines to assess and quantify human impacts
on the deep seafloor (e.g. mining, oil and gas exploration, bottom
trawling, telecommunications cables)

• Autonomous Carbon Sensor Engineering

Develop and integrate carbon system sensors with operational observation
systems including gliders and Argo floats

• Nutrient Micro-sensor Engineering

Develop and commercialise nutrient micro-sensors into applications,
products, and widespread use.


£26,715 to £37,875 per annum dependent on experience, skills, and

What we can offer you:

The initial appointment will be for 4 years and will form part of a
tenure track initiative/scheme that will be supported by a structured
programme of training, coaching, mentoring and regular evaluation to
actively encourage individual growth and development. Having
demonstrated a proven track record of research delivery and scientific
leadership within the 4 year period, successful candidates can expect to
be offered open ended positions.

NERC provides benefits that include a UKSBS pension scheme and a
generous leave scheme offering up to 30 days leave and a further 10.5
Public/privilege days.
