British Antarctic Survey

British Antarctic Survey

British Antarctic Survey has for over 60 years undertaken scientific research in both Antarctica and the Arctic. BAS is currently recruiting for a variety of staff to support the stations for the coming Antarctic seasons, on both 6 and 18 month contracts.

BAS is a component of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Based in Cambridge, United Kingdom, it has, for over 60 years, undertaken the majority of Britain's scientific research on and around the Antarctic continent. It now shares that continent with scientists from over thirty countries.

BAS employs over 400 staff, and supports three stations in the Antarctic, at Rothera, Halley and Signy, and two stations on South Georgia, at King Edward Point and Bird Island. The Antarctic operations and science programmes are executed and managed from Cambridge, and rely on a wide-ranging team of professional staff.

BAS has a long and distinguished history of carrying out research and surveys in the Antarctic and surrounding regions, undertaking most of the British research on the frozen continent. The close linking of our science programmes with essential logistics support makes us very effective in carrying out the complicated and sophisticated scientific field programmes that are necessary today.

As a major research centre of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), we:

  • Provide a national capability for Antarctic science and logistics
  • Carry out scientific research, long-term observations and surveys that cannot be done by anyone else in the UK 
  • Provide a focus for international co-operation and programme co-ordination
  • Concentrate on issues fundamental to NERC’s science strategy and conservation of the Antarctic environment.
