Job Description

NPL's Gas and Particle Metrology Group are responsible for operating several national monitoring networks for atmospheric aerosols. We are also involved in several European projects in response to increased demand to provide traceability and calibration techniques for measurements of properties such as aerosol particle size distribution, concentration, composition, and black carbon. These measurements are important to address problems within the areas of air pollution and climate change.

We are looking to recruit a Physicist/Chemist/Engineer to work on the development of techniques to measure properties of aerosols. The successful candidate will work as part of a talented research team on a variety of state-of-the-art measurement systems, solve challenging technical problems, present research in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences, and will engage with external organisations to maximise scientific progress and help grow our business.

Requirements:

• A good degree in Physics, Chemistry or Engineering and significant relevant experience, gained either through employment or postgraduate research (such as PhD).

• Knowledge and experience of aerosol measurement techniques for properties such as particle size distribution, concentration, composition, and black carbon.

The UKs National Physical Laboratory sits at the intersection between scientific discovery and real world application as one of the world's top three National Metrology Institutes. Every employee at NPL is central to achieving our aim of continuing to innovate and deliver scientific excellence. Our mission is to provide the measurement capability that underpins the UK's prosperity and quality of life.

Join the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at an exciting time of growth where you will have a great opportunity to maximise Impact from science. We are bold and visionary and we believe anything is possible at NPL.

Based in a unique, purpose-built research environment, we are located in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Bushy Park, south-west London with a host of onsite facilities. These include a subsidised crèche, restaurant and free parking.

NPL Management Limited is committed to supporting its people to develop both personally and professionally and is committed to equal opportunities. NPL Management Limited is a Stonewall Diversity Champion and an Institute of Physics Project Juno Supporter.
