One week left to apply for Research Fellow position in Peruvian glacier retreat and water resources

Caroline Clason-2

Dear Cryolisters,


I am looking to appoint a postdoctoral Research Fellow to conduct collaborative research on the NERC-CONCYTEC research project "Integrated upstream and downstream thinking to mitigate the water security challenges of Peruvian glacier retreat". Taking a basin-wide water-food-energy-environment nexus approach in the Santa River Basin, Peru, this project aims to (1) close critical process knowledge gaps in dynamics of water budget change linked to glacial retreat, connectivity between upstream change and downstream consequence and the sources and fluxes of water, sediment, and contaminants during high and low flows, and (2) build a stakeholder decision support framework for mitigation and adaption strategies to both rebalance ecosystem service provision regarding water supply and mitigate downstream impacts. The successful applicant will work in collaboration with myself, Professor Will Blake, and Professor Iain Stewart at the University of Plymouth, in addition to project partners at Plymouth Marine Laboratory and in Peru.

It is essential that you have a PhD (or are close to completing a PhD) in a field relevant to catchment science and/or glaciology, and that you are willing to conduct multiple field seasons in Peru which may involve extended stays of multiple weeks. Independent travel will form a central part of the project so it is desirable, but not essential that you hold a driving licence. It is desirable that you should have experience of working in glaciated regions, with relevant knowledge of water and sediment dynamics in the context of glacier-fed basins. Experience of contaminants in the context of catchment environmental quality would also be beneficial. You should have a positive attitude towards interdisciplinary research, working within a large collaborative team, and working closely with a range of stakeholders. It is also essential that you feel comfortable in undertaking the day-to-day management of a large research project.

This is a full-time post based in Plymouth, UK, lasting ~32 months, and with a starting salary of £34,189 per annum, funded by the Newton Fund.

For an informal discussion or to find out more about the role, please contact me by email:  [hidden email] or telephone on (+44)01752 584873. The deadline for applications is 10th March 2019, and interviews of shortlisted applicants are expected to take place week beginning 1st April 2019. 

Best wishes,

Caroline
