The Centre of Atmospheric Sciences is seeking to appoint an excellent scientist to work on a major international programme to study the emissions from aircraft engines. AVIATOR (Assessing aviation emission Impact on local Air quality at airports: Towards Regulation) is a high-profile and coordinated international field project that aims to address the current lack of understanding of the scaling of emissions from engine exit plane to the wider airport environment over a range of climatic conditions and fuels, and the impact of the emissions on local air quality.

The role is to: 1) make measurements of aerosol physical and chemical properties at Madrid, Copenhagen and Zurich International Airports and at an engine test bed facility in Madrid; 2) Develop tools (machine learning) to analyse data from a network of low cost sensors, deployed at Madrid International airport.

You will be responsible for preparing and operating The University of Manchester aerosol instrumentation including the Aerodyne Aerosol Mass Spectrometer, as well as coordinating with the international partners on the development and deployment of the low cost sensors. You will carry out data analysis, collaborating widely across the international team and will be expected to lead novel scientific outputs. This is an exciting opportunity for a scientist with a strong interest in atmospheric aerosol measurements and a track record in data analysis who is keen to work in a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary team.

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