Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Benthic Biogeochemistry
Location: Oban, Argyll
Full Time, permanent position
Salary: Lecturer: £40,322-£45,361 pa
Senior Lecturer: £49,553-£55,750 pa
(Starting salary will depend on experience)
The Ideal Candidate:
Should have a strong understanding of marine biogeochemistry/benthic processes and additional understanding of numerical modelling would be desirable. We would like the successful candidate to have experience in benthic impacts of marine aquaculture including fin fish cage farming, shellfish cultivation and macroalgal cultivation. Prior experience of working with the aquaculture industry would be an advantage.
You will be a key player in driving forward SAMS program of discovery and applied research in the area of marine benthic biogeochemistry/benthic processes. You will be expected to engage with both existing SAMS research and commercial projects, but also develop your own funding streams over time and to contribute to SAMS program of education at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. A key aspect will be to contribute to the further development of marine aquaculture impact models including New DEPOMOD for use by the fish farming sector and regulators in the UK, but also overseas.
