Weather Directorate and ICAS and to their management and development.  In 
particular you will be expected to provide/develop strategic leadership in the 
area of mesoscale observational meteorology with an emphasis on convection.  
You will contribute to research supervision and to teaching on topics related 
to atmospheric science in our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

You will have a doctoral degree in a physical science. You will have a strong 
publication record, show evidence of research income generation, together with
