You still handing our fixed-term appointments? I thought NERC was getting rid of them.

"Core funded" posts are now open ended. But those funded by external grants (as this is) are advertised for the length of the grant.

Too bad about the part

To work for BAS, you must be eligible to live and work in the UK. BAS can only apply for a work permit in cases where there are no suitably qualified or experienced resident workers: otherwise applicants should normally be resident in the UK or a national of the European Economic Area (EU States plus Norway and Iceland).


That hardly seem to be in the spirit of global scientific endeavor...

Its employment law, sadly. From a scientific POV, we'd like to employ people based entirely on how good they are. And how much they like stoats, of course.

But it sounds worse than it is: we employ many non-EU folk, when they are the only suitably qualified candidate: it happens fairly often.
