The British Antarctic Survey (BAS: https://www.bas.ac.uk/) invites applications for the positions of atmospheric chemistry instrument scientist and physical oceanographer. Both positions are full-time based in Cambridge, United Kingdom with possible field work.

Atmospheric Chemistry Instrument Scientist Position:
The primary role of will be to oversee and have full responsibility for the suite of atmospheric chemistry instrumentation belonging to BAS’s Tropospheric Chemistry Group (both gasphase and aerosol). The Instrument Scientist will also be responsible for working up data from field-deployed instrumentation and submission to global databases for some variables. This position will include various field deployments, including to Antarctica. For more information, click here: https://www.bas.ac.uk/jobs/vacancy/atmospheric-chemistry-instrument-scie....

Physical Oceanographer Position:
British Antarctic Survey invites applications for an observational physical oceanographer with a track record of interpreting and analysing observational polar oceanographic datasets. The successful candidate will work on two projects that are understanding the role of the Southern Ocean and Weddell Gyre in heat and carbon subduction. Specifically, the PDRA will contribute to the European Research Council (ERC)-funded project SO-CHIC (Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) funded project ORCHESTRA (Ocean Regulation of Climate by Heat and Carbon sequestration and Transports). This position includes the possibility for up to six months in Antarctica in the first two years of the post.
