Earth Surface Processes and Landforms: Associate Editor positions 

ESPL (Impact Factor 3.77) is starting the search process for two Associate Editors (AEs) to replace Chris Houser and Heather Viles/Larissa Naylor (job share),
whose terms of service ends on the 31st December 2018. Our Associate Editors serve for a 3-year term, renewable for a further 3 years, and provide assistance to the Managing Editor by:

Securing reviews and making recommendations for around 30 manuscripts submitted to the journal per year, including providing clear steers to authors as to the
revisions that their manuscripts might require. ESPL has an explicit policy of getting decisions to authors in as timely a manner as possible. The field of these manuscripts will normally be closely or partly related to the research interests of the AE

Reviewing proposals for Special Issues of the journal.

Providing independent advice to the Managing Editor in a situation where an author or authors appeal a decision taken by ESPL or where irregularities arise with
a submitted manuscript.

Raising the profile of ESPL amongst potential authors and readers.

Attending Editorial Board and Editorial Advisory Board meetings where possible, with remote access if needed. Board meetings are held at international conferences
(e.g. AGU, EGU) where possible.

Keeping the Managing Editor and Assistant Editor informed of times when they might not be available due to, for example, fieldwork commitments.

Each position comes with an honorarium.

To replace Chris Houser, ESPL is searching for a world-leading geomorphologist, from any country, capable of handling manuscripts concerned with:

aeolian processes, including sand and dust and associated transport; and

soft sediment coasts and related coastal processes.

To replace Larissa Naylor/Heather Viles, ESPL is searching for a world-leading geomorphologist, from any country, capable of handling manuscripts concerned


hard rock coasts and related coastal processes. 

For both AEs, capacity to handle manuscripts treating remote sensing methods (at all scales) or advanced dating methods would be of interest but not a requirement.

ESPL would be willing to consider a job share appointment. 

For further information or for an informal discussion as to the nature of the role, please contact the Managing Editor, Professor Stuart Lane (
Final expressions of interest, which should include a 2 page summary CV and a 2 page covering letter explaining your interest in the position, should be submitted in a single pdf document to by the 20th August 2018.

[Met-jobs] Vacancy: Postdoctoral Research Associate in Climate Analysis and Modelling at the University of Edinburgh (UK)

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Climate Analysis and
Modelling, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh (UK)

We seek an outstanding postdoctoral research associate (PDRA) to
participate in a project that aims to improve current
interpretation of the East Asian climate response to aerosol
forcing and reduce uncertainty in near-future regional climate
projections. The work is funded by the Climate Science for
Services Partnership: China project: “Aerosols and regional
climate dynamics”, and will involve a team from the Universities
of Reading, Edinburgh, Leeds, and Exeter, together with a number
of international partners. The PDRA will perform analysis of
atmospheric circulation patterns that contribute to episodes of
poor regional air quality. The PDRA will determine whether the
frequency and severity of air quality events changes with time,
and to what extent anthropogenic aerosol emissions play a role in
this change. Performing experiments with a nudged version of the
HadGEM3 model, the PDRA will assess the impact of climate
variability and model biases on the simulated frequency and
severity of air quality events. The PDRA will work in
collaboration with the project team as well project partners from
the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (Beijing), and engage with
the Met Office.

This post is full time and fixed term until 30th September 2019
(with a possibility of an extension depending on funding). The
post is available from 1st October 2018.

More detailed information on the position and on how to apply is
available here:

Closing Date: Friday 10th August 2018 at 5pm (GMT). For further
information, please contact Dr Massimo Bollasina (

The School aims to ensure equality of opportunity and holds an
Athena SWAN Silver award. We welcome applications from everyone
irrespective of gender or ethnic group. Appointment will be based
on merit alone.

PhD studentship in glacial geology (sedimentology, hydrogeology) at Lund University

Dear all,

We have got funding for a new PhD studentship (fully funded for four years) to look at sediment production underneath glaciers in the sub-marginal zone.

We are looking for keen and motivated recent MSc students with a background in glacial sedimentology, glaciology and/or hydrogeology – and an interest in process-studies that enable links with engineering geology. 

The deadline for application is 8 August 2018. 

To apply and for further details, see the link below:

In case of further questions, please get in touch with me.

All the best,

[Met-jobs] Post-Doc / Engineer position: Terrestrial ecosystems influenced by climate and land uses

Position available:

Post-doctoral researcher or Engineer (minimum 5 years high level education)

using a terrestrial ecosystem model

 Subject: What are the indirect effects of a large-scale reduction in the use of nitrogen fertilizers in Europe?

Impacts will be studied through changes in biomass productions, surface water availability, net emissions of greenhouse gases, 

and nitrogen losses for the environment    

We seek an autonomous researcher / Engineer who will:

– apply the dynamic global vegetation model ORCHIDEE-CROP to scenarios of climate and land use changes in Europe

– couple an economic model to ORCHIDEE-CROP via their land cover and uses

The work will be based outside Paris (France), on the new campus of the University Paris-Saclay

The candidate must be able to demonstrate advanced knowledge in the use of models, 

and must have proven experience in simulations on Linux clusters. 

A degree in a quantitative environmental sciences discipline, for instance meteorology, environmental physics, or ecophysiology of plants 

or animals is required. 

Knowledge about soil and vegetation processes is a clear advantage.
