Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Atmospheric Science, University of Birmingham

College of Life and Environmental Sciences - School of Geography, Earth &
Environmental Sciences


Job Ref 58370


The University of Birmingham is continuing to make strategic investments
across its research base in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental
Sciences. As part of a significant investment in Environmental Sciences /
Geography staffing, we are now seeking to appoint a Lecturer or Senior
Lecturer in Atmospheric Science to expand our extensive and internationally
excellent research and teaching in this field.


Current research strengths in Birmingham include urban air pollution,
atmospheric chemistry, applied meteorology and climatology.  The group is
heavily involved in international field projects supported by RCUK, EU, DfID
and industrial sponsor, development of new observational tools including
sensor networks, evaluation of vehicle and other emissions through on-road
and dynamometer experiments, laboratory and chamber studies of atmospheric
chemical processes, modelling of atmospheric processing on a range of
spatial scales (street canyon to global), prediction of meteorological
extremes and climate impacts upon infrastructure, and biosphere-atmosphere
interactions.  Our facilities include several new on-line field instruments,
a substantial NERC investment in a detailed atmospheric monitoring on
campus, and the BIFoR-FACE facility.    Research in this area will further
benefit from a major University capital investment in a new Molecular
Sciences research laboratory building in the near future.  We also have a
strong track record in the provision of science advice to inform local,
national and EU policy.  For further details, please see: 



Applications are invited from candidates in all areas of atmospheric
science; however we particularly encourage applications which will
complement our research strengths in Applied Meteorology or Air Pollution,
and related topics.  Candidates able to strengthen our engagement with
industry / business and wider outreach would be especially welcome.
Preference will be given to candidates whose work is based primarily upon
experimental measurements (field or laboratory) and data analyses rather
than solely numerical modelling.  


Applicants for this post must demonstrate (or show potential for)
international excellence in their research area.  Evidence of a track record
in publishing work of the highest academic quality and impact is essential,
alongside track record of / potential for obtaining external research
funding.  Willingness to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries within
the School and College is strongly encouraged, and applicants must have a
commitment to delivering excellent research-informed teaching and learning,
at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and communicating the relevance
and impact of their research to stakeholders.  

Interviews will be held in early February (provisionally, 12/13 Feb 2018).  


Candidates are encouraged to address informal enquiries to Professor William
Bloss (Head of School; w.j.bloss at bham.ac.uk <mailto:w.j.bloss at bham.ac.uk> )
or Professor Roy Harrison (Research Theme Lead; r.m.harrison at bham.ac.uk
<mailto:r.m.harrison at bham.ac.uk> ) ahead of formal application.
