Please find below details of a 12 month research technician post concerning the stable isotope composition of collagen in fish scales.

Thanks very much


Research Technician - Stock structure in North Sea Herring - School of Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton UK

Description: This DEFRA-funded position will support a project investigating the migration and movement of marine fish from the isotope chemistry of their scales. The post holder will be responsible for extending methods developed on Atlantic salmon to commercially important small pelagic marine fish populations (North Sea Herring). The main scientific question addressed by this work will be testing whether spawning populations of herring share common summer feeding grounds. You will gain an introduction into a new method of studying the ecology of marine fish, and will join a dynamic research group applying chemical methods to study fish ecology. The position demands good laboratory skills covering sample management and curation, manipulation and dissection under binocular microscopes, and preparation of samples for isotope ratio mass spectrometry and you should be prepared to work using a binocular microscope to clean and dissect scales for analysis.

To deliver these goals you should be scientifically literate with a degree in one of the following, Ecology, Geology, Biology or a related scientific discipline with some familiarity with environmental chemistry. Some background experience in either marine ecology or isotope geochemistry is essential. An understanding of fish ecology, sclerochronology, GIS and/or stable isotope ecology would be an advantage. Organisation and familiarity with common computing packages (e.g. Word, Powerpoint, Excel) is essential, as are good written and verbal communication skills.

The post is for 12 months and is available from May 2010 and the salary is in the range of 22,237 to 26,523 per annum.

Informal enquiries only (please do not send CV's) can be made to Dr Clive Trueman on 023 8059 6571, e-mail [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

To apply for this position, please visit the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton job vacancy website (

The closing date for applications is 21 April 2010 at 12 noon.
