Onderzoekmedewerker model en datasupport

Wij zoeken een zelfstandige en initiatiefrijke onderzoekmedewerker die in samenwerking met de wetenschappelijke staf zorgt voor ondersteuning en databeheer bij het gebruik van atmosferische modellen voor onderwijs en onderzoek in de ruimste zin. Hierbij hoort het voorbereiden van computerpractica, het beheren en het toepasbaar maken van grote databestanden voor modelstudies, de ontwikkeling en het onderhoud van programmatuur voor het inzamelen van atmosferische data, het beheren van modelversies die bij MAQ in gebruik zijn, het (mede-)oplossen van complexe programmatische problemen bij modelgebruik, alsmede het beheer en de ondersteuning bij gebruik van werkstations en geavanceerde computers. Verder ondersteun je de wetenschappelijke staf en de docenten bij de inzet van modellen bij het onderwijs. Daarnaast stimuleer je proactief en op eigen initiatief de uitwisseling van kennis en modeltools tussen stafleden. Je fungeert dus als de spin in het web en als aanspreekpunt voor medewerkers en studenten bij het gebruik van atmosferische modellen voor onderwijs en onderzoek bij MAQ.

Lecturer Soil Geography or Physical Geography

The Soil Geography and Landscape (SGL) group of Wageningen University & Research (WUR) is looking for an inspiring lecturer. Our work relates to physical geography, soil science, agronomy, pedometrics, geo-information science and geomorphology, and often takes an interdisciplinary approach. We are intrigued by natural and anthropogenic processes that shape and modify the surface of the earth, how these processes interact in time and space, and what their combined effects are. We develop and apply novel methods and models to obtain quantitative understanding of the soil-landscape system. Examples include digital soil mapping, luminescence dating, and soil-landscape evolution modelling. In addition, we perform research on wildfire disturbances, landscape archaeology, and techniques for co-production of knowledge. With our activities, we contribute to nature-based solutions for the challenges of our time, such as climate change adaptation and mitigation, combatting land degradation and sustainable food production.

We share our knowledge with students at all levels, with stakeholders and society. Wageningen University is renowned for its education quality, and our group is proud of its excellent education track-record. We mainly contribute to the Soil Water Atmosphere BSc programme and Earth and Environment MSc programme, but also to a wide range of related programmes, such as International Land & Water Management, Landscape Architecture and Spatial Planning.

You will ensure an inspiring learning environment for students, by interactive lectures, group exercises, fieldwork and excursions. You will be responsible for several courses of our education portfolio, and take a leading role in updating and developing our courses and teaching methods. You will combine teaching (~80%) with research (~20%) on relevant topics in our domain. You will be involved in PhD supervision, scientific publishing, co-production of knowledge with stakeholders and sharing knowledge with society at large. In addition, you will actively support functioning of our group and the Wageningen soil cluster by collaborating with colleagues, co-organizing group social activities, and contributing to the group management. Please note that we simultaneously advertise a position for a tenure-track assistant professor in our group.
