Principle Climate Change Scientist (Part-time 15 hours)

Health Protection Agency, Oxfordshire:

The Health Protection Agency exists to help protect the health of everyone in 
the United Kingdom; our ambition is to lead the way by identifying, preparing 
for and responding to health threats and setting standards for health 

The Agency was established as a special health authority in 2003. On 1 April 
2005, the Agency was established as a non-departmental public body with 
radiation protection as part of health protection incorporated in its remit.

You will join a team of scientists advising on the effects of climate change on 
health and on how people can adapt to these changes. We develop work on the 
effects of episodes of high concentrations of ozone, and their association with 
heat waves. Separating the effects of ozone and temperature is difficult and 
you will undertake non-lab based research in this area. Developing advice that 
will allow people to avoid these effects will be a central part of your job. 
You may be asked to manage a Independent Expert Group to advise in these areas. 
You will be required to lead in the development of new thinking in these fields 
and to collaborate with research workers in UK universities. The role offers 
wide ranging experience in the scientific basis of assessing risks, in close 
liaison with Government departments and agencies and independent experts. You 
will be the Center's scientific lead figure in this area over the period of 
your employment.

For further details and an informal discussion please contact Dr Sotiris 
Vardoulakis on 01235827435 or by email
