The Committee on Climate Change is currently recruiting for the following positions:
Two positions are available:
- Climate scientist
This role requires formal qualifications in climate science, an internationally recognised track record and recent publications in an area of science relevant to the Committee. The candidate is likely to have links into relevant international organisations, thinking and research, such as the Royal Society and overseas equivalents, IPCC and similar international bodies, and UK and overseas meteorological offices.
- Power sector specialist
This role requires detailed understanding and familiarity with the energy sector (including differences across the UK), scenarios for its decarbonisation and associated implications with evidence of recent publications or equivalent work. It also requires an understanding of the linkages between power sector scenarios and energy system issues, such as electrification in transport and heating sectors and links to industrial decarbonisation, amongst other areas.
The appointees will replace two outgoing Committee members and are expected to take up their roles in 2018. The closing date for applications is 03/11/2017.
Please note that, in the interests of fair and open competition, we do not maintain a database of potential candidates. Therefore we do not accept applications on a speculative basis or hold CVs on file to be considered for future vacancies.
