NCAS is looking to appoint two non-executive directors (NED) to the NCAS Management Board. The Board provides the top level strategy and oversight of the operation of NCAS. The Board was formally constituted in late 2018, its formation being part of an organisation-wide restructuring designed to create a more coherent, agile and dynamic organisation fit for the 21st century and the science challenges that lie ahead. For NCAS, these new non-executive director roles are highly significant, signalling a major shift in the level of organisational maturity.

Non-executive directors will provide constructive challenge, thoughtful insight, and independent scrutiny to help the Board achieve its mission to be a world-leading research centre dedicated to the advancement of atmospheric science. You will not necessarily need to have experience as a researcher or practitioner in atmospheric science, however you will have extensive experience of operating at a senior level in a complex science-related research, business or governmental organisation.

The two successful candidates will be appointed for an initial period of two or three years by mutual agreement. Remuneration is £450/day with an expected contribution of between 8 and 12 days each year.

NCAS is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and welcomes applications from all. Applications from women, those with a disability and members of minority ethnic groups, who are currently under-represented at senior levels in the research and innovation community, are therefore especially encouraged.

The closing date is 10.00 UTC on Wednesday 22 May 2019
