About the role

The NOC seeks a talented and enthusiastic scientist with experience of analysis of models and observational data to join the Marine Systems Modelling Group at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton, UK. Focused on the global marine environment, this research position aims to improve our understanding of the ocean's role in climate and its associated societal impacts. The successful candidate will have research experience - and ideally a publicati on record - in the areas of ocean model analysis, remote sensing, marine biogeochemistry and/or climate change. 

You will work in the exciting area of climate change impacts, focusing on the biogeochemistry (BGC) of the North Atlantic and its role in climate, including future projections of climate change. You will join the CLASS Project (https://projects.noc.ac.uk/class/), a research programme bringing together cutting-edge modelling and observational efforts across the UK. You will work closely with a wide range of models and observational datasets, and collaborate both across the UK and internationally. Collaborative publications in high impact scientific journals are a key expected outcome of this work. 

This is a Fixed Term Appointment, initially available for 3 years. The NOC is a strategic research organisation that takes a long-term view when recruiting. While this is a Fixed Term Appointment, there may be potential to convert to a permanent appointment subje ct to operational requirements.
