Do you want the opportunity to carry out impactful environmental science in an inclusive and welcoming environment? At the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH), due to ever increasing demands for our science internationally, we are offering an exciting new leadership role.

As the Associate Director of International Research and Development you will be responsible for the development and coordination of UKCEH International activities. Reporting to the Science Director (Doug Wilson) the successful appointee will also be responsible for managing and delivering the NERC/UKRI funded National Capability International Programme (NCIP) and initially work with Alan Jenkins (Deputy Director) to represent and further advance global UKCEH interests.

The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology is an independent, not-for-profit research institute. We have a long history of investigating, monitoring, and modelling environmental change, and provide the data and insights that governments, businesses, and researchers need to create a productive, resilient and healthy environment.

Based across four UK sites in Bangor, Edinburgh, Lancaster and Wallingford, UKCEH has an annual budget of around £50 million. We are a strategic delivery partner for the Natural Environment Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation.

We seek to create a working culture which is inclusive and provides a sense of belonging. This role can be based at any of our four sites, and homeworking and flexible working may be possible after the induction period. You will have the exciting opportunity to travel to other UK sites and overseas.
