Two exciting opportunities to work in a high profile and scientifically challenging area of work of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The Science team, within the Science and Innovation for Climate and Energy Directorate, is looking for two climate science specialists to join our team of science advisors. The Science Team provides scientific and technical advice to BEIS and wider government in support of BEIS’s international and domestic climate and energy policies on issues including negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), global and regional impacts of climate change and adaptation, geo-engineering, energy, bioenergy and mitigation options. It leads on the UK’s input to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and prepares the data on the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to enable us to set targets for emissions reduction and monitor progress against these. The team also identifies climate policy evidence needs and research gaps, develops and manages research in support of the above and is responsible for strategic communication of developments in climate and energy science and engagement with scientific stakeholders.
