You will be able to actively participate in the R&D activities of collaborative research projects and have a desire to become a future leader in your field.
We expect that your skills and qualifications include:
- as a minimum education requirement, a University Degree (MSc or equivalent) in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines, e.g., Physics, Mathematics, Environmental Sciences, Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Sciences;
- good experience in computational sciences or statistics, with knowledge and proven use of scientific programming languages or advanced software environments (e.g. Fortran, C, Python, Matlab, R);
- a PhD or 3-year equivalent experience in any topic involving computational science and/or data-driven approaches to the activities covered by the calls.
The research group in Dynamics of Ecosystems and Computational Oceanography (ECHO) focuses on quantitative approaches to oceanography, marine biogeochemistry and ecosystem dynamics. ECHO’s research activity includes the development, analysis and use of models of varying complexity (physical models, biogeochemical models, food webs, ecological models) with applications at a broad range of scales, spanning from local high-resolution studies, to basin-wide regional models and climatic projections. Applications include the assessment of natural and anthropogenic pressures on marine systems, carbon and nutrient cycling, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, ecosystem approach to fisheries and aquaculture, operational oceanography and data assimilation, analysis of integrated eco-socio-economic systems, and sustainable development. The ECHO group is currently composed of about 40 people, who are collaborating widely with other groups in Italy and at the international level, in the framework of various research projects, services, programmes and networks. ECHO offers a lively research environment and excellent infrastructure in terms of laboratories and state-of-the-art equipment.
