The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) carries out large-scale and long-term research in the terrestrial and freshwater sciences to support a broad user community. We address key environmental issues through integrated monitoring, process studies and predictive modelling, and the development of essential infrastructure and facilities.
We require an ecologist or biochemist with some experience of working with models or modellers to join our biogeochemistry and ecosystem function section at CEH Bangor. Our work is aimed at understanding and forecasting the impact of pollution, climate change and land use on biogeochemical cycles and the consequences for water quality, soil health and biodiversity. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who will enjoy working in a small team embedded within the newly funded Wales Environment Centre on the University of Wales, Bangor science campus. You will be expected to work collaboratively on existing projects concerning the impact of pollution, land use and climate change on soil and water quality and the biochemistry of the carbon and nitrogen cycles in the uplands, and develop new projects compatible with existing expertise at CEH Bangor.

A PhD, or equivalent experience, in a relevant area is required preferably with some postdoctoral experience. You should have a broad experience in environmental science which will include ecology and/or biogeochemistry with some experience of working with models or modellers.

The salary will be in the range £20,800 progressing to £25,690 per annum, or £26,470 progressing to £31,200 per annum depending on post-doctoral experience. In addition NERC offer a pension scheme, 25 days' annual leave and 10½ days' public and privilege holiday.
