The purpose of this post is to contribute to a significant and growing project and regulatory advice portfolio and to provide flexible support and delivery across teams and divisions and help build our work in marine socio-economics.
You will plan and undertake surveys of consumption and occupancy habits of the public around nuclear licensed sites in the UK. You will interview members of the public and liaise with other government authorities. You will analyse and interpret data collected during the fieldwork, write reports and summarise your findings. You will receive training in interview techniques and in the use of field instruments and will be expected to help develop and improve our surveys. You must be available to undertake significant fieldwork per year throughout the UK, in 10 – 14 day periods during the summer months. The fieldwork will include lone working as well as work in the evening and at weekends. As travelling forms an integral part of this post, you must be able to travel independently to remote locations to carry out fieldwork.
In addition you will also work as part of research and development projects relating to human impacts on the marine environment, attending conferences and meetings relating to the work of the team, often in conjunction with senior team members
