My friend John Barrett pointed out that the Environmental and Sustainability Institute at Exeter has jobs for mathematicians and statisticians who “combine research expertise in areas such as computational statistics, data modelling, system dynamics, control, optimization and/or computation with vision and innovation so as to transform research across the environment and sustainability agenda”.
