Research Fellow in Global Assessment of Water Security

School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford

Grade 8: £37,756 - £45,053 p.a.

The Environmental Change Institute (ECI) is seeking to appoint a
Research Fellow to join our major research programme on water security.
Our research on water security takes a multi-scale approach, analysing
global risks and exploring how pathways to water security can be
appraised and implemented at the river basin scale. We address droughts,
floods and water quality in an integrated risk-based approach. The
Research Fellow will pioneer new analysis of risks and develop metrics.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced water researcher with a strong
track record of publication in the scientific literature and a genuine
motivation to address water challenges of global significance. The
applicant may come from a hydrological, water resources systems or water
economics, with experience of modelling at a range of scales, ideally
including regional and global scales. The postholder must hold a
Doctorate or have equivalent research experience in a relevant subject.
The Research Fellow will be expected to take initiative in design and
implementation of research and publication of results. There will be
opportunities to contribute to teaching to the School’s Master’s programmes.

This is a senior position aimed at candidates with an outstanding
specialist abilities and research track record, so the advertised Grade
8 reflects this level of responsibility. We will also consider
candidates at an earlier career stage with a strong research track
record and outstanding research potential, and in that case a post may
be offered at Grade 7 (£29,837 - £36,661 p.a.) with the responsibilities
adjusted accordingly.

This is a fixed-term post for up to 18 months in the first instance,
with the intention to extend to 24 months subject to satisfactory
project progress.

You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement when you apply.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 11 August 2014.
Interviews will be held on 5 September 2014.

The job description and person specification is attached to this email.
