Lecturer in Atmospheric Science

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and the Institute for 
Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (ICAS) are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in 
Atmospheric Science with speciality in radar observations to take advantage of 
a new radar system.  NCAS has recently acquired a mobile Doppler 
dual-polarisation X-band radar which is ideally suited for research in clouds 
and precipitation. We welcome applications from high calibre candidates who 
have strong research backgrounds making use of radar observations in the areas 
of mesoscale weather systems, dynamics and microphysics of clouds, and/or 
atmospheric boundary layers.

You will be expected to make a significant contribution to the research profile 
of the NCAS Weather Directorate and ICAS and to their management and 
development.   In particular you will be expected to make full use of the new 
X-band radar and to provide/develop strategic leadership in the area of 
radar-based research.  You will also contribute to teaching and research 
student supervision in ICAS.  You will work closely with the NCAS Facility for 
Ground-based Atmospheric Measurement (FGAM) Radar Instrument Scientist, Dr 
Lindsay Bennett, and other NCAS Weather and ICAS scientists involved with the 
weather radar.

You should have a doctoral degree in a physical science. You are expected to 
have a strong publication record, show evidence of research income generation, 
if appropriate, together with teaching experience or potential, and show strong 
vision for the future.

The post is a joint appointment of NCAS (60%) and the ICAS, School of Earth and 
Environment (40%), University of Leeds.

University Grade 8 (£37,012 - £44,166 p.a.)
