Senior Research Fellow in Computational Geosciences 
Department of Earth Sciences, South Parks Road, Oxford 
Grade 10: £52,219 - £60,513 with a discretionary range to £66,109 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Senior Research Fellow in Computational Geosciences in the Department of Earth Sciences. The postholder will support computational geoscience in the department by bringing modern standards of software engineering, distributed development, code maintenance/documentation, interoperability, and open-source distribution to the research groups. Furthermore, the postholder will collaborate with faculty, postdoctoral researchers and students to develop new software that is efficient, accurate, and scalable on evolving computer architectures.

The postholder will lead research in geophysical computing in the department, and will be responsible for co-supervising and supporting research in this field for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists. S/he will also contribute to development and grant preparation for new computational projects in collaboration with members of the department, the University, or more broadly, and be responsible for managing a small network of Linux workstations, including 2-3 shared, multi-core machines.

Candidates will have a PhD in mathematics, computer science, earth sciences or physics, or a related discipline, and have significant post-qualification research experience, a recognised international authority in computational geosciences, with a high level of expertise in numerical solution of PDEs, experience in supervising students and managing staff, ability to lead an independent research programme and to work well with others in an interdisciplinary environment. Experience mentoring graduate students and managing open-source code projects and software licenses are desirable but not essential.

For further details of the responsibilities/duties, please see the job description. This is an open-ended position.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 21 March 2016. Interviews will be held during the first two weeks of April 2016.
