Greetings and Happy New Year. We have a job vacancy based in the Falkland Islands with SAERI. I would be very grateful if you would share it around your networks.

SENIOR QUANTITATIVE MARINE ECOLOGIST
Are you passionate about the marine environment and Climate Change? Interested in working in the wonderful Falkland Islands?
SAERI is recruiting a Senior Quantitative Marine Ecologist to help inform climate change adaptation in Falkland Islands fisheries and marine ecosystems. The Falklands coastal landscapes and seascapes are susceptible to climate change but the Falklands have not had an opportunity to assess the impacts that climate change will have on fisheries and marine ecosystems. Therefore, Falklands are unable to mainstream climate change adaptation into Fisheries and Oceans governance.
This newly developed role will:
1. Quantify the ecosystem roles of key species
2. With partners to determine physiological tolerances and acclimation of key species
3. Use an ecosystem model to evaluate consequences of predicted change and to develop tools for ecosystems approaches to fisheries and ocean management
Main Essential criteria:
· PhD in Marine Sciences/mathematical ecology, related field
· Numerate with experience with statistical modelling, ideally with experience in ecosystems modelling
The programme is funded by the Darwin Initiative in partnership with Falkland Islands Government, Falkland Islands Fishing Industry, Oregon State University, British Antarctic Survey and the Shallow Marine Surveys Group, this new strategic role within SAERI will bring together stakeholders and the local community, to understand climate change impacts to Falklands fisheries and marine ecosystems. Ultimately, the role will inform climate change adaptation and resilience.
The Falkland Islands is a nature wonder spot. Close encounters with dolphins, penguins, seals and whales in crystal-clear waters can be experienced 5 mins from your doorstep.
