We invite applications for an Instrument Scientist in the field of Cloud Microphysics. The position is funded by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS). The University of Manchester hosts several NCAS staff within the Centre for Atmospheric Science, which is part of the Department of Earth and Environmental Science. The position is available at Grade 6 or Grade 7, depending on experience, as described in the detailed job descriptions.

Role requirements

The initial appointment is for 3 years, but extensions are likely as part of the long term partnership between NCAS and the University. The position has two main roles:

  1. Delivery of measurement facilities and data to the UK atmospheric science community, as part of the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility (AMOF). A major component of this consists of fieldwork, including operating from research aircraft.
  2. Delivery of NCAS science in the area of cloud microphysics, including development of new calibration methods, instrument development, and publication of research findings in peer reviewed journals.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments will be made on merit.
