You will demonstrate a passion for education and an ability to enhance the delivery and development of our growing undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Coastal Marine Science, including field courses in the UK and overseas.

Based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, home to the Marine Autonomous Robotic Systems fleet, and with strong links to the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute, GeoData institute, and world-class supercomputer facilities, we are integral to both the interdisciplinary Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute and Institute for Life Sciences. We lead the prestigious NERC INSPIRE Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) and are home to one of the largest graduate schools in Ocean and Earth Science in the world, with >130 PhD students.
