Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Job title PhD position (Early Career Researcher) Application online <https://jobs.exeter.ac.uk>, quoting Job reference P48225 Application closing date 28/04/2015 Job description College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter, UK The College wishes to recruit an Early Career Researcher to support the work of Prof. P. Friedlingstein on the EU-ITN C-CASCADES project. This Horizon 2020 Innovative Training Networks funded post is available immediately for 36 months. The successful applicant will develop a new representation of lateral transfer of Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) from land to the river system in JULES. The post will include original model developments in JULES, the land surface model of the Met Office Hadley Centre Earth system model, in order to have a realistic representation of DOC production in terrestrial soils and its export to the river network by leaching. The model will be evaluated using river discharge DOC data for large rivers across the world, with a potential focus on a key specific region (e;g. Arctic or Tropics). Simulations will be performed with the major historical forcing (climate, atmospheric CO2, nitrogen deposition, and land-use changes) in order to estimate the changes of DOC export and their attribution to anthropogenic activities. Applicants will possess an undergraduate degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent in physical, mathematical or environmental sciences and must be eligible to be appointed as an Early Stage Researcher in the UK under the Horizon 2020 Innovative Training Scheme.
