About the organisation
The British Geological Survey (BGS) is an applied geoscience research centre that is housed in UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and affiliated to the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
It is a world leading geological survey that provides a core science mission to inform government of science related to the subsurface and its interface with the wider environment, and also undertakes applied research for solutions to earth and environmental processes, both in the UK and globally. It is funded directly by UKRI as well as through research grants and via private sector contracts.
The British Geological Survey currently has an opportunity for a talented and highly motivated Hydrogeologist to join one of their groundwater research groups based at the BGS in Wallingford, Oxfordshire to work on projects addressing challenge of environmental change, adaption and resilience.
About the role
You will take a leading role in supporting the delivery of a number of BGS-led, high profile, UKRI- and UK government, and EU-funded collaborative research projects related to the long-term sustainability of groundwater resources under environmental change both in the UK and internationally.
Activities will vary from project-to-project, but will include processing, modelling and visualisation of large environmental datasets, field data and information capture including groundwater monitoring, and the preparation of reports and publications for the peer-reviewed literature.
Working closely with BGS's partners, the work will contribute to maximising the use of BGS data and its improved management, reducing uncertainties in the management of groundwater resources under environmental change, and to improved responses to extreme events such as floods and droughts.
