Senior Research Associate, School of Geography and the Environment, Oxford


Senior Research Associate in Agent-Based Modelling School of Geography and the Environment, Oxford Grade 8: £39,992 - £42,418 p.a.
We are seeking a Senior Research Associate (SRA) for a new interdisciplinary project to build an agent-based model (ABM) to represent the extraction of fish by fishing vessels in open ocean fisheries and the associated effects on ocean ecological systems. The goal of this effort will be to identify pragmatic fisheries management strategies tailored both to the complexity of the ocean ecosystem, and the limitations of the social, economic and regulatory system.

The SRA will be expected to assist in the production of published material, and grant-writing to support the ongoing development of the project. This project will provide the opportunity to experience first-hand how to bring research into practical application, connect with top researchers, policy experts, practitioners and business leaders, and contribute to meaningful and timely solutions for the world’s oceans and fisheries.

The successful applicant will require deep expertise in agent-based model building and application, wider software development skills and a strong quantitative background - a doctorate in a quantitative subject (e.g. computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, quantitative ecology) is a requirement; a track record of multi-disciplinary research and experience in complementary disciplines (e.g., economics, marine biology, natural resource management) is essential.
