The Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) within the School of 
Earth and Environment is one of the UK's largest and most diverse institutes 
for atmospheric research, making fundamental advances in our understanding of 
climate change, weather, air pollution, and impacts on our planet and society. 
ICAS has over 30 academic staff and about 100 postdoctoral researchers and PhD 
The Centre for Expertise on Modelling the Atmosphere and Climate (CEMAC) is a 
major new venture to substantially enhance the research, teaching, impact and 
outreach capabilities of the institute related to computer modelling, data and 
visualisation. The use and development of advanced models of weather, climate 
and air pollution in ICAS is extraordinarily broad and ambitious. We conduct 
modelling of complex processes in atmospheric physics and chemistry using a 
range of platforms from local clusters to the largest High Performance 
Computing facilities. ICAS's research feeds into international assessments such 
as the IPCC and we work very closely with many UK and international research 
institutions and with the Met Office developing their models for climate 
projections and high-impact weather prediction.
The overall ambition of CEMAC is to create a support and expertise team for 
models and data across atmospheric and climate research and teaching, that will 
rival the best international examples of how model and data support is 
organised in computing-intensive research institutions.
We are seeking to appoint a high calibre Head of CEMAC to implement and lead 
the new Centre. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of 
operating within fast moving complex research computing environments. You will 
have a First degree (Bachelor's or equivalent) in an appropriate technical, 
scientific, or engineering discipline, ideally with a strong software 
engineering component. You must be able to demonstrate previous success in 
developing and maintaining operational systems and software focused on 
responding to the needs of diverse users.

The University of Leeds‟ commitment to women in science has been recognised 
with a national accolade. The University has received the Athena Swan Bronze 
Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and promoting 
women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET). The Faculty of Environment 
are in the process of preparing an application for an Athena Swan award to 
recognise our commitment
and work in these areas.
