Farm Carbon Calculator scientific DTP support placements

Farm Carbon Toolkit is offering current DTP students the opportunity to work on their Farm Carbon Calculator. Come and use your skills to support thousands of farmers across the UK and beyond to footprint their farms’ GHG emissions!

We are offering current Doctoral Training Partnership students an exciting opportunity to work on our Farm Carbon Calculator and gain work experience in a role that really is helping to change the way we farm.

We’re looking for enthusiastic placement students who know how to use Excel and ideally have experience or detailed knowledge of one or more of the following:

  • GHG emissions sources in agriculture (and the processes involved)
  • Software development/ development of web-based tools
  • UK agricultural management practices (particularly in regard to manure management/ livestock management)
  • GHG footprinting and associated standards/ reporting guidance

Don’t worry if you only know about one of the above, as there will be plenty of opportunities to develop knowledge in all of these areas. We can design the placement to suit your skills and interests and you will be supported by our Calculator Manager, Lizzy Parker.

We are a remote organisation and the placement can be undertaken from anywhere in the UK but you will need access to your own laptop. Any travel for the placement (e.g. to quarterly in-person team meetings and other relevant events) will be covered by our expenses policy. Written and spoken Italian would be a big asset for placements commencing June or July 2023.
