Ambler was born November 20, 1923, in Yorkshire, England. He became a U.S. citizen in 1958. He received B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Oxford University.

Ambler has worked for the National Bureau of Standards since 1953. In 1961 he became Chief of the Cryogenics Section; in 1965 he was appointed Chief of the Inorganic Materials Division; and in 1968 he became Director of the Institute for Basic Standards, where he was responsible for directing the development and maintenance of standards and measurement techniques for such quantities as length, mass, time and frequency, and temperature, and advancing the state of the art in measurement science. In 1973 he was appointed Deputy Director of the National Bureau of Standards, and he has been serving as Acting Director since 1975.
