Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Atmospheric Science
University of Birmingham, UK

Job Ref 58370

The University of Birmingham is continuing to make strategic investments across 
its research base in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences. 
As part of a significant investment in Environmental Sciences / Geography 
staffing, we are now seeking to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in 
Atmospheric Science to expand our extensive and internationally excellent 
research and teaching in this field.

Current research strengths in Birmingham include urban air pollution, 
atmospheric chemistry, applied meteorology and climatology.  The group is 
heavily involved in international field projects supported by RCUK, EU, DfID 
and industrial sponsor, development of new observational tools including sensor 
networks, evaluation of vehicle and other emissions through on-road and 
dynamometer experiments, laboratory and chamber studies of atmospheric chemical 
processes, modeling of atmospheric processing on a range of spatial scales 
(street canyon to global), prediction of meteorological extremes and climate 
impacts upon infrastructure, and biosphere-atmosphere interactions.  Our 
facilities include several new on-line field instruments, a substantial NERC 
investment in a detailed atmospheric monitoring on campus, and the BIFoR-FACE 
facility.    Research in this area will further benefit from a major University 
capital investment in a new Molecular Sciences research laboratory building 
under development.  We also have a strong track record in the provision of 
science advice to inform local, national and EU policy.  For further details, 
please see: 

Applications are invited from candidates in all areas of atmospheric science; 
however we particularly encourage applications which will complement our 
research strengths in Applied Meteorology or in Air Pollution, and related 
topics.  Candidates able to strengthen our engagement with industry / business 
and wider outreach would be especially welcome.  Preference will be given to 
candidates whose work is based primarily upon experimental measurements (field 
or laboratory) and data analyses rather than solely numerical modelling.  

Applicants for this post must demonstrate (or show potential for) international 
excellence in their research area.  Evidence of a track record in publishing 
work of the highest academic quality and impact is essential, alongside track 
record of / potential for obtaining external research funding.  Willingness to 
collaborate across disciplinary boundaries within the School and College is 
strongly encouraged, and applicants must have a commitment to delivering 
excellent research-informed teaching and learning, at undergraduate and 
postgraduate levels, and communicating the relevance and impact of their 
research to stakeholders.  

Interviews will be held in early February (provisionally, 12/13 Feb 2018).  

Candidates are encouraged to address informal enquiries to Professor William 
Bloss (Head of School; or Professor Roy Harrison 
(Research Theme Lead; ahead of formal application.
