Cambridge / Hybrid
£Competitive + good benefits

Backgrounds in climate modelling or economics are both welcome

If you would like to play a role in addressing climate change in an actionable and substantial way, our Cambridge based client may have the right opportunity for you.

Our client seeks mathematical modellers, ideally with a background in climate science and / or risk analysis, to aid in developing intricate simulations which will allow businesses to assess their impact on the environment. This allows the businesses to then make practical and long-lasting changes to their manufacturing, logistics or future strategy, enabling them to meet new legislative requirements and close the gap on carbon-zero targets.

  • At least a bachelor’s degree (2:1 or above) in Climate Science, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Economics or similar subject from a top university.
  • Established skills in mathematical modelling, including building simulation models, probability, and statistics, and relating them to real world scenarios.
  • Confidence and strong competence with languages such as Python (ideal), MATLAB, R and SQL.
  • Evidence of your successful participation in research work involving gathering relevant data from multiple and varied sources, along with the ability to effectively communicate your findings to non-specialists and experts in your field.
  • Full rights to work in the UK without time limits or sponsorship.

Your application would be enhanced with some of the following:

  • Good knowledge of topics such as physical risk science, economics and finance.
