Here are some opportunities that may be of interest:
See video here for UKCEH's achievements in its first year of independence after Dec 2019.
- For UKCEH, see our vacancies page (those only open to existing CEH employees are either on Workday or here).
- Also check out the Environment Agency, which is a related institution in the UK that also has many exciting vacancies.
- UKCEH does a lot of training courses. They are generally not free, but they are very good.
- NCAS in Reading also do training courses (I've done a couple of them myself).
If you are interested in what I personally do and/or any of my projects on this website, but none of the opportunities above are appropriate (or you are not eligible), then I'm very open to people who would like to
(a) Visit me at UKCEH and find out a little about this place (see video here) and what I do (see above): send me an email and give me a bit of notice, but I'm always open to this. 10am-lunchtime is generally a good time. The address of CEH Wallingford is here and there are direct buses from Oxford and Reading.
(b) Do a short internship with me (~ up to 1 month). If you want to gain some experience in environmental science / ecology / hydrology / environmental modelling, then I can arrange a temporary desk for you at CEH Wallingford (any time of year, but subject to me being here too during the time you choose, of course). I can't offer to pay you or cover expenses, but these days getting experience on your CV is always good and you never know where these things might lead (it's not quite as bad as Conservation Science yet, but it's a very rough job market out there, I know). I've hosted 3-4 people on this basis since 2015 from school-leavers to undergraduates and they've all told me they benefited greatly from the experience. No, you don't necessarily need to know how to code or do stats: you can choose the project and if we need skills like that then I'll take you through the basics. Send me an email if you are interested.
