NERC/DEFRA Policy placement secondment opportunity

Applications are invited for a new 18 months, part time (25-30%), policy 
placement secondment opportunity to work with the Department for Environment, 
Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) on its Atmosphere and Local Environment 
Programme (ALE) in London.

This secondment is offered as part of NERC's policy placement fellowship scheme 
(http://www.nerc.ac.uk/using/publicsector/placements.asp)  which allows 
researchers and other staff involved in environmental science research to work 
closely with policy-makers within government and other public and third sector 
organisations in the UK.

The purpose of this policy placement is to provide a technical lead for air 
quality modelling.  The Atmosphere and Local Environment (ALE) Programme in 
Defra has recently undertaken a review of it atmospheric modelling portfolio 
lead by an independent steering group. Building on the recommendations from the 
review, Defra is now developing a strategy for atmospheric modelling. The 
strategy will ensure future evidence needs for policy development are met 
through activities which will need implementing and managing in the short, 
medium and long term.
