Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree at 2.1 level in Geography or a related social science field, or a Masters degree with a minimum overall grade of ‘merit’ (or a non-UK equivalent such as explained by Swansea University).Applicants should have strong qualitative research skills, including data processing, generation and analysis. Masters level experience would be a plus.
We welcome applications from candidates with relevant professional experience and are interested in hearing from people about their personal responses to weather emergencies.
