Closing date: 1st February 2019, 12:00
Grade 7: Salary in the range £32,236 – £35,211 p.a.

The Marine Geospatial Modeller will conduct research to study marine systems using a big data approach to ask questions within the fields of ocean risk, sustainable marine management and biogeography. This will involve sourcing, processing, integrating and analysing large amounts of spatial and non-spatial data. The results of this research will be integrated into an existing interactive database, and web-tool on spatial data related to the changing state of the global oceans, the Ocean Tool for Public Understanding and Science (OCTOPUS). This post will closely collaborate with the Geospatial software developer (job number 138647), and will be responsible for the focus of the applications on the user interface. Applicants called to interview will be expected to present their suggested research focus.

Applicants should have a PhD with postdoctoral experience in geography, environmental studies, or data science. Experience in geostatistics and GIS-based spatial modelling is essential. A strong track record in scientific peer-reviewed or other publications for the career stage of applicants is also required. Applicants should be proficient in the use of a scientific programming language such as Python, R, or Matlab to analyse and visualise large and complex geospatial data. A familiarity with the marine environment is also highly desirable for this post.

All applications need to be made online by 12.00 noon on 1 February 2019. Interviews will be held on 25 or 26 February 2019.
