Faculty Position / Lectureship in Hydrology / Water Science in Aberdeen, UK
The School of Geosciences at the University of Aberdeen invites applications for two full time faculty positions in hydrology/water
science. These newly created positions follow the University’s commitment to water resource research and the strategic need to enhance capability in this critical area. The successful candidates will join an existing interdisciplinary science and modelling
team to support the strategic development of water resource research in Aberdeen. Outstanding instrumented research catchment exist nearby and faculty expansion builds on a long history of internationally recognised research excellence in catchment science;
particularly tracer hydrology, ecohydrology and hydrological modelling in the School of Geosciences. We are seeking to enhance and complement these existing strengths and we welcome applications from other related areas of water science such as groundwater-surface
water interactions and surface energy balance modeling to tackle pressing local issues of environmental impacts of hydropower generation, climate change adaptation and water resources, water sustainability science in the UK context and the international dimensions
of water security.
The appointees will be expected contribute to the growth of this dynamic area by developing new approaches and networks in
water resource research. This will strengthen external research links with other Higher Education Institutes in the UK and abroad, government research laboratories (e.g. the James Hutton Institute, Marine Science Scotland) and industry. The successful applicants
will also have the opportunity to develop links between cognate groups in other parts of the university (eg the Schools of Engineering and Biological Sciences) and contribute to the development of cross-cutting institutional research themes in Environment
and Food Security and Energy.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Professor Chris Soulsby (Head of School):
PLEASE DO NOT SEND CV’S OR APPLICATIONS FORMS TO THE SCHOOL OR PROFESSOR SOULSBY.
