Senior Specialist Scientist (Oceanographer/Modeller)
£35,839 - £40,350
Providing expert advice on the modelling and monitoring of oceanographic dispersion processes, you'll play a key role in SEPA's mission to protect the Scottish environment for generations to come. Focussing particularly on protecting and improving water quality, you'll consider physical processes as well as elements of marine chemistry and marine ecology.
You'll provide modelling and analysis of oceanographic processes in support of investigations and projects. We'll expect you to work with colleagues to proactively develop tools, methods, documentation and procedures to ensure even better results. SEPA receives modelling and monitoring reports in support of applications to discharge waste to the sea. You'll comprehensively assess those reports - from the scientific methods used through to key assumptions and risks.
Whether writing reports, delivering presentations or influencing and leading change, you'll need to demonstrate excellent communication skills and innovative thought. Ideally qualified to postgraduate level in a relevant subject, your knowledge spans oceanographic processes and instrumentation, key concepts in marine chemistry/ecology, coding, data analysis and visualisation and methods for assessing waste discharge to the sea. The ability to apply analytical and numerical models and process data to achieve practical outcomes within these fields is essential.
