We employ a wide range of people at British Antarctic Survey from top-flight scientists to chefs.  We want to attract the best no matter what the job.  The rewards and opportunities on offer are the kind that money can’t buy.  Imagine being a scientist working thousands of miles from home experiencing life in one of the most extreme places on Earth, or an engineer with responsibility for keeping our research stations operational.  When not working in the polar regions you could be working in our office and labs in the beautiful city of Cambridge.  Browse this section to find out if we’ve got what you want and if you’ve got what it takes to join us.
