Job offer in Ireland Research Scientist at University College Dublin

School: UCD School of Civil Engineering 

Applications are invited for a Research Scientist in the UCD School of Civil Engineering. This is a temporary post.

The decision making regarding the climate proofing of regulatory frameworks and water infrastructure currently lacks a strong evidence base. The multidisciplinary Acclimatize project seeks to provide this evidence base for Dublin, the capital of Ireland. The project is underpinned by an integrated approach to coastal zone management and the successful applicant will be required to develop, calibrate and validate an integrated hydrodynamic model of Dublin Bay and its urban and rural catchments. The successful applicant will also be required to play a lead role in the collection of field data (including marine data) necessary for the calibration and validation of models. This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The role will involve publishing in peer-reviewed academic journals, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students, along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

Salary: €40,000 – €45,000 per annum

Appointment on the above range will be dependent on qualifications and experience
