The Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (GSGSSI) is seeking a Marine and Fisheries Officer who will be responsible to the Chief Executive for co-ordinating science in support of GSGSSI fisheries and marine environmental management. Fisheries for Patagonian toothfish, mackerel icefish and Antarctic krill are established in South Georgia waters and are managed in an ecosystem-based approach to take account of the demands of predators such as penguins and seals.

Duties will include:

(i)  Liaison with GSGSSI’s scientific contractors;

(ii)  Preparation of reports and papers for CCAMLR Working Groups;

(iii)  Co-ordination of fisheries observers;

(iv)  Data collation and analysis;

(v)  Organisation and participation in research cruises;

(vi)  Short deployments on commercial fishing vessels as an observer or to collect additional data

and samples;

(vii)  GSGSSI verification of toothfish catches;

(viii)  Analyses of biological samples.

The successful candidate will be an experienced, numerate and adaptable marine/fisheries biologist (minimum MSc in Marine or Fisheries Biology). Ideally they will have knowledge and experience of South Georgia fisheries, ecosystem approaches to fisheries management, stock assessments and inter-actions between fisheries and non-target species. They must have good communication skills with the ability to produce high quality reports and scientific papers.

The successful candidate must be responsible, well motivated and able to work independently with confidence, sometimes in demanding conditions. A positive mental attitude and enthusiastic approach to the duties are important attributes. The successful candidate must be physically fit and will be required to pass a statuary medical examination.

Salary will be in the range £24,000 – £30,000 depending on experience. On completion of each year of service a gratuity of 25% of earnings will be paid. The post will be based in Government House in Stanley, but will include periods of time at sea and on the island of South Georgia. The successful candidate will also be expected to attend CCAMLR meetings in Hobart, Australia.

Further information and an application form are available from the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Please contact Martin Collins (Chief Executive Officer; [log in to unmask]) for further information and application forms.

Applications should submitted on the appropriate form to Martin Collins by 10th September 2012.
