Do you have experience of supporting projects? Are you a proactive and solutions-focused person who enjoys the challenge of coordinating both people and tasks in a complex project environment?

Terra FIRMA and CANARI are two large, multi-centre research projects coordinated by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) that bring together numerous scientists from eight Centres funded by the Natural Environment Research Council. The projects develop and apply world-leading global climate and Earth system models with the aim of delivering reliable future climate change projections and associated science to policy guidance to UK government, UK decision-making bodies, and the general public. In addition, the projects will deliver science knowledge to support the next IPCC Assessment Report (AR7) and the UNFCCC Global Stocktakes. Both projects are National Capability (NC), meaning they are charged with providing models, tools, and data, in a supported manner, for use by the broader UK research community.

As Project Coordinator, you will work with the Principal Investigators, lead scientists and other team members in each project to support the delivery of the project’s primary goals and strategy, analysing information and proposing solutions to project management and project organisational challenges. You will undertake a central project support role and will act as the first point of contact for enquiries from across project participants. Your role will include budget management; ensuring the project websites are up to date with the latest project results; collecting input for the project websites, newsletters, and periodic reporting; organising project meetings and events and associated travel requirements; communicating and liaising with project partners, including senior academics, early-career researchers and external stakeholders (e.g., government departments).
