The Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM), based at Cranfield University, is recruiting an Instrument Scientist or Instrument Engineer in Atmospheric Science.

You will be a highly motivated individual - with a background in the physical sciences or engineering – and will work with airborne observational groups in atmospheric science, as an Instrument Research Scientist/Engineer. You will design, prepare, maintain and operate airborne research instruments for worldwide deployment.

You will have a bachelor's degree or equivalent experience (and preferably a higher qualification) in physical science or a suitable engineering discipline and be willing to work in the laboratory, on the atmospheric research aircraft and in the field. Employed by the University of Leeds, you will be a member of the FAAM team based at Cranfield.

There is the opportunity for those with a PhD and previous research experience to add a research remit to this role. This will involve active participation in the collaborative research programme in atmospheric technology.

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).
