A bit about you... 

An enthusiastic scientist with spatial data skills, you’ll have a keen interest in air quality, climate change science and impacts. You will be working on a wide range of projects on quantifying air pollution, and the impact this has on human health and the environment. To enable you to do this you should have previous experience working with scientific datasets. You will work and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, bringing an innovative approach to promoting the work we do.  

Having existing knowledge of data analysis is key, preferably related to agriculture or air pollution. You should be proficient in scientific numeracy, be creative when solving problems and continuously learn new things. The work we do may lead to some exciting opportunities to travel overseas for meetings or workshops (e.g. Europe, South Asia).  

We are passionate about developing you and this role includes a 3-year UKCEH Research Associate training program. This will offer you the opportunity to gain additional training and development to support you in your new role and will run parallel with the delivery of your work. 

Key Responsibilities for the role: 

  • Develop efficient, reproducible workflows to integrate and analyse complex spatial datasets (e.g. using R) 
  • To take an active part in the team projects, on spatial emission inventories, atmospheric pollution, assessment of pollution mitigation measures and their impact on sensitive vegetation and human health  
  • To contribute to and/or lead on presentations, reports, datasets and scientific articles for publication and stakeholder interaction 

Here are some essentials we are looking for: 

  • A degree (2:1 BSc or MSc) or equivalent, with a scientific background, e.g. environmental science, geography or agriculture 
  • Advanced experience with data manipulation tools, geographic information systems (GIS), programming in a high-level language (R preferred) 

If you are as inspired as we are about this opportunity, then please send us your CV and a covering letter (telling us how perfect you are for this role) by clicking apply. If you would like to make an informal enquiry about this role, please contact Ed Carnell (edcarn@ceh.ac.uk) for more information.
