SCCS Senior Scientific Research Officer (Net Zero Decarbonisation)
Post: Fixed term, full-time to end of April 2021 (with likelihood of contract extension)
Closing date: 5pm on Monday 4th May 2020
Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage, is looking for a Senior Scientific Research Officer with a desire to facilitate action on CO2 emissions reduction on the pathway to net zero. This is an exciting opportunity to work with industry across Scotland, the Scottish industrial cluster NECCUS, and research teams in projects across Europe.
We are seeking someone with an appropriate chemistry, engineering, or environmental science background who will use their expertise to support the development of investable industrial CO2 capture, transport and storage projects in Scotland and the Central North Sea.
The role is responsible for leading the strategic development and delivery of SCCS’s portfolio of work on the role of CCS across the economy, aimed at providing the Scottish Government and other key stakeholders with timely, accessible and relevant knowledge and data to inform the development and implementation of policy, and support industry in the development of projects.
Informal enquiries should be directed to Philippa Parmiter (firstname.lastname@example.org)
