Date Thu, 10 Aug 2017 14:52:49 +0000

An opportunity has arisen for a self-motivated Senior Environmental Scientist to contribute to an research programme on Environmental Change and Health on the Theme of Natural Environment at Public Health England (PHE). PHE is committed to assessing and reducing/preventing the public health impacts relating to environmental hazards. This post is a rare opportunity to contribute to the development of an exciting and dynamic area of environmental public health. PHE develops and delivers evidence-based advice on the health effects of climate and environmental change.


This post will contribute to the research programme of the Climate Change Group, with a view to publishing peer reviewed articles, and contributing to the Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Environmental Change and Health funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR). This HPRU is a collaboration between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Public Health England, University of Exeter, the UK Met Office, and University College London (UCL). This post will mainly contribute to the Natural Environment programme (Theme 3) of the HPRU. The role will involve investigating the role of weather and climate on infectious disease risk, and will involve mathematical or spatial modelling and biostatistics.


The post holder will have PhD in a relevant discipline and have relevant post-graduate experience working in environmental science, environmental epidemiology, risk assessment, urban climatology, environmental physics, atmospheric science, mathematical modelling or similar. Relevant post-doctoral experience, preferably involving analysis of complex data sets from a variety of sources (e.g. health, environmental, demographic), is also desirable. The post is based at Harwell, Oxfordshire and is fixed term until the end of March 2019.
