Make sure the freezer’s well stocked.
The unique marine environment around the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia boasts some valuable fisheries. Joining BAS at the applied fisheries laboratory, King Edward Point, where we undertake a programme of commissioned fisheries research for the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich islands (GSGSSI), you’ll play an integral role in preserving this valuable resource for generations to come.

Scientific Officer (Ref: BAS 36/04)
Leading the small science team, you’ll assume responsibility for the implementation of the programme of laboratory and field research undertaken by BAS. This will see you actively participating in ship-borne research surveys, collaborations with the scientific fishery observer programme and writing scientific papers for publication in international journals. For the fisheries scientist with a first degree in biology, this is an exceptional opportunity to develop your research and management skills. Ideally, you’ll have 3 tears’ experience, which could have been gained during a PhD.
Closing date: 5th July 2004. Interviews: 5th August 2004.

Closing date: 9th July 2004. Interviews are scheduled for 10th August 2004.

Salaries will be in the range of £15,581 to £22,218 pa. plus Antarctic allowance and possible performance bonus.
