This is an exciting opportunity for a post-graduate or post-doctoral researcher to join the Environmental Research Group at King’s – internationally recognised as a world leader in air pollution research – at the start of a major new study into the impacts and mitigation of exposure to diesel exhaust.

The post holder will primarily be responsible for the establishment of a cohort of professional drivers and organise an ambitious personal monitoring campaign examining in-vehicle exposures.

While the post is 12 months in duration in the first instance, the role is developmental, with opportunity for extension into other areas of research and contract delivery. In reflection of this, suitable candidates offered the post of Deputy Manager of the Exposure Science team.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in environmental science, with experience in measurement fieldwork and data analysis. An ability to communicate with others in an engaging and amiable way is essential. Experienced candidates with a non-academic background (public or private sector) are encouraged to apply.

The selection process will include a presentation and a panel interview.

The deadline for applications is midnight on 26 October 2017
