The Opportunity:

You will join the SECO project, a 5 year NERC Large Grant combining field observations in long term plots, remote sensing, data assimilation and biogeochemical modelling to answer key questions about the size, location and future of the carbon pools in tropical savannas and dry forests (https://blogs.ed.ac.uk/seco-project/). SECO is a global partnership of 22 organisations including, in the UK, the Universities of Edinburgh, Leeds, Sheffield and Exeter, and with collaborators across the global dry tropics.

The successful PDRA will join a team including research staff with expertise in plot measurements, remote sensing and modelling/data assimilation, a project manager, data managers, field technicians and several PhD students. As such, although expertise in field data collection and modelling is desirable, for this post we are looking for someone who has experience of geospatial analysis and is excited by the prospect of combining different types of information to understand the carbon cycle of the dry tropics.
