The
Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM), based at
Cranfield University, is recruiting an Instrument Scientist or
Instrument Engineer in Atmospheric Science.

You
will be a highly motivated individual – with a background in the
physical sciences or engineering – and will work with airborne
observational groups in atmospheric science, as an Instrument
Research Scientist/Engineer. You will design, prepare, maintain
and operate airborne research instruments for worldwide
deployment.

You
will have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience (and
preferably a higher qualification) in physical science or a
suitable engineering discipline and be willing to work in the
laboratory, on the atmospheric research aircraft and in the field.
Employed by the University of Leeds, you will be a member of
the FAAM team based at Cranfield.

There
is the opportunity for those with a PhD and previous research
experience to add a research remit to this role. This will involve
active participation in the collaborative research programme in
atmospheric technology.

The
University of Leeds’ commitment to women in science has been
recognised with a national accolade. The University has received
the Athena Swan Bronze Award in recognition of our success in
recruiting, retaining and promoting women in Science, Engineering
and Technology (SET).
