British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is a component of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Based in Cambridge, United Kingdom, it has, for over 60 years, undertaken the majority of Britain's scientific research on and around the Antarctic continent. It now shares that continent with scientists from over thirty countries.
BAS employs over 400 staff, and supports three stations in the Antarctic, at Rothera, Halley and Signy, and two stations on South Georgia, at King Edward Point and Bird Island. The Antarctic operations and science programmes are executed and managed from Cambridge, and rely on a wide-ranging team of professional staff.
The following opportunities have arisen within the Polar Data Centre and the mapping group at BAS. These include an important permanent position developing web-based science and business systems and exciting short-term projects focussing on marine data collected from the Southern Ocean and the Polar environment as monitored from space.
