Marine Assessment Scientist x2

JNCC is the statutory advisor on nature conservation to the UK Government and the Devolved Administrations, as well as having specific responsibilities for marine biodiversity conservation in UK offshore waters. Within JNCC, the Marine Ecosystems and Assessment Team is responsible for developing and undertaking assessments of biodiversity and ecosystems for reporting to EU Directives, the European Environment Agency, OSPAR and national policies. The team also provides scientific advice on marine policy implementation, including European and global policy mechanisms, as well as on assessments undertaken within offshore Marine Protected Areas.

JNCC is now recruiting two posts to help manage the delivery of the key national marine assessments over the next few years. One post is a permanent appointment; the other is a fixed term appointment until November 2016. The posts will be based in JNCC’s Peterborough office.

Both of these posts will play a key role in helping to deliver these major biodiversity assessments and also our assessment R&D work which covers topics such as improving assessment processes and development of marine biodiversity indicators. The focus of these roles is principally on benthic habitats though there will be a need to work closely with other JNCC specialists on other components of marine ecosystems. The post-holders will also be expected to work with a range of external scientific groups and other marine organisations both in the UK and in the rest of Europe.

We are looking for two people who have a good understanding of UK marine biodiversity science combined with solid data analysis and IT skills. Ideally, candidates will also have knowledge of the legal and policy aspects of marine conservation, along with excellent communication skills with the ability to explain scientific concepts to non-specialist audiences, often in a policy context. This is a unique opportunity to directly contribute to the major national and international marine biodiversity assessments which are needed over the next few years.

For more information about the skills/competencies required for each of these posts, visit our website www.jncc.defra.gov.uk/jobs where you can download the details and the relevant application form and find out more about our work. Alternatively, contact us via recruitment@jncc.gov.uk and we will email the relevant documentation to you.

The closing date is 09:00 on 10 June 2015, interviews are expected to take place on 06 & 07 July 2015.

Inshore Monitoring Officer

JNCC is seeking an Inshore Habitats Monitoring Officer who will contribute to JNCC’s work on developing options for benthic habitats monitoring, along with methods and protocols for monitoring seabed habitats.

The post-holder will work under the guidance of the Marine Habitats Monitoring Manager and contribute to the development of the UK Marine Biodiversity Monitoring R&D Programme. There will be a focus on the inshore benthic environment but close working with the Offshore Habitats Monitoring Officer will also be required. The duties will involve working with other marine staff within JNCC as well as with partners in the country conservation agencies, and with others such as Cefas and Marine Scotland Science.

The post is based in Peterborough and will be offered on a permanent basis.
