Lecturer in Atmospheric Chemistry – Ref: ATR1487
£42,792 to £49,533 per annum.
UEA are inviting applications for a Lectureship in Atmospheric Chemistry in the School of Environmental Sciences within the Faculty of Science at UEA. The School is one of the largest and longest established academic departments in Europe to focus on the study of the global environment, ranking 1st for impact in the UK REF 2014.
It hosts the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, which comprises around 25 members of faculty whose research addresses many of the critical global environmental challenges of our time: e.g. climate change, changes to polar regions, ocean acidification, air quality and ozone depletion. Our approach is to investigate the atmosphere and oceans as an integrated system, for example looking at air-sea gas exchange, links to the cryosphere and the land and marine biosphere.
Candidates will have developed strong expertise in an area of atmospheric chemistry research and will be excited by the opportunity to develop their research interests in the rich interdisciplinary environment the School offers.
The central focus of the post is the chemical composition of the atmosphere, understanding the atmospheric budgets and chemical cycles of key constituents relevant to air quality and climate change. We are interested in candidates who will conduct research in one or more of the following fields: laboratory studies, atmospheric observations or modelling. Their research is expected to make scientific advances which will lead to high impact.
They should also have a keen interest in developing excellent teaching and will contribute to the School’s BSc and MSc programmes in environmental sciences and geography, primarily in atmospheric chemistry and related topics.
Applicants must have a PhD in atmospheric chemistry (or equivalent experience) or a closely allied and appropriate subject and fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.
This post is available immediately, on a full-time indefinite basis.
They welcome applicants from all protected groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010 and, in particular, those from black or other minority ethnic backgrounds.
Closing date: 2 October 2019.
