* Managing and building on the National Marine Invertebrates Collection
* Reviewing the legislation and processes leading to the establishment of Marine Nature Reserves and Marine Protected areas in other countries
* Planning for the production of a field guide to the shallow marine environment
* Report writing and contributing to peer reviewed publications.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD or equivalent experience in biology/zoology.
Experience should include:
* A good knowledge of benthic ecology
* Marine invertebrate taxonomy
* The application of modern statistical methods
* Geographical Information Systems
* A well documented SCUBA history including cold water diving
* RIB/motor boat handling qualifications
