We are seeking a 24-month PDRA to work on the HFSP project ‘The atmosphere: a living, breathing ecosystem?’. You will develop theoretical modelling approaches (including bioenergetics calculations, power-based ecosystem modelling) to investigate the potential habitability and ecological structure and function of microbial communities in the atmosphere. Your initial focus will be to model the habitability and ecological processes occurring in Earth's atmosphere, and then to translate the tools and knowledge generated to the atmosphere of other planetary bodies or exoplanets.
Location: London, UK
Fixed term: 24 months (extension subject to available funds)
Closing date: 25 August 2023
