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 protection. 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.
