I’m recruiting a Senior Researcher in Flood Prediction with interests in statistics, machine learning, hydrology and climate to start in October 2021 for 2 years!
Apply by 29 July
Please reach out if any questions. Skills in statistics/RStats/Python desired.
I have just joined the editorial team of Geoscience Data Journal (Royal Meteorological Society) as an Associate Editor.
Aims & Scope: Geoscience Data Journal provides an Open Access platform where scientific data can be formally published, in a way that includes scientific peer-review. Thus the dataset creator attains full credit for their efforts, while also improving the scientific record, providing version control for the community and allowing major datasets to be fully described, cited and discovered.
An online-only journal, GDJ publishes short data papers cross-linked to – and citing – datasets that have been deposited in approved data centres and awarded DOIs. The journal will also accept articles on data services, and articles which support and inform data publishing best practices.
Data is at the heart of science and scientific endeavour. The curation of data and the science associated with it is as important as ever in our understanding of the changing earth system and thereby enabling us to make future predictions. Geoscience Data Journal is working with recognised Data Centres across the globe to develop the future strategy for data publication, the recognition of the value of data and the communication and exploitation of data to the wider science and stakeholder communities.
Content description: A data article describes a dataset, giving details of its collection, processing, file formats etc., but does not go into detail of any scientific analysis of the dataset or draw conclusions from that data. The data paper should allow the reader to understand the when, why and how the data was collected, and what the data is.
Subject coverage: GDJ will accept contributions a broad range of geoscience disciplines, including, but not limited to: Weather and Climate; Oceanography; Atmospheric and Ocean Chemistry; Cryosphere; Biosphere, Land Surface and Geology, Hydrology, Geochemistry, Geophysics, Planetary and Space Sciences.
Two new NERC-funded PhD positions starting in 2018 are available with me and colleagues at Loughborough University, as part of the CENTA Doctoral Training Programme.
