17 January 2012 from Ian McCrea (ian.mccrea@stfc.ac.uk)


The EISCAT Scientific Association is looking for a DIRECTOR


The EISCAT Scientific Association will appoint a new Director from January 2013. The successful candidate will have a strong scientific background with broad experience in geospace and atmospheric physics or related fields, as well as good technical insight and excellent organisational skills. He/she needs to demonstrate the leadership qualities required to promote and lead the EISCAT Scientific Association during a period of change, as the organisation moves toward a new generation of facilities. A critical part of the new Director’s role will be to make the high‐level contacts needed to attract new funding and bring more international partners into EISCAT. Experience of working with similar international research infrastructures and managing large international projects would therefore be a great advantage.


The full‐time post is for a three‐year period with the possibility of renewal for a further three years. The Director is based at the EISCAT Headquarters in Kiruna, Sweden. However a considerable amount of international travel should be expected.


Applications should include a resume and a one page statement of the applicant’s vision for EISCAT and should be sent by email to: Director2013@eiscat.se, latest 17:00 (CET) on Wednesday 15 February 2012. Applications will be treated confidentially. Employment terms and conditions will be subject to negotiation with the board of EISCAT, the Council. For more information about the position, please contact the current Director, Dr. Esa Turunen (Esa.Turunen.@eiscat.se) or the Chairperson of Council, Dr. Tomas Andersson (tomas.andersson@vr.se).
