Marine Science – Exciting Career Opportunities
Plymouth, Devon
About PML

PML is an international centre of excellence for marine biological, chemical and ecotoxicological research. Our science is concerned with increasing knowledge and understanding of the marine environment in three areas of major concern to humankind: Global Change; Pollution; and Sustainability. As a multi-disciplinary Laboratory, the purpose of our research is to understand the fundamental properties of the marine environment and to design tools and solutions for its practical management.

Our scientific areas are underpinned by an excellent research capability in modelling at scales from cells to ecosystems, and Earth observation using a variety of instruments encompassing the range from in situ sensors to satellites.

Three career opportunities are offered, all of which are full time, permanent positions. We offer excellent benefits, including competitive salaries, childcare scheme, sports and leisure facilities plus an excellent working environment located close to the sea at West Hoe, Plymouth.

Viewed as a key area of importance, PML has recently invested substantially in laboratory space and equipment to develop our Molecular Biology activities. We are currently carrying out a strategic review of our requirements but are confident that we will require a leading edge senior scientist to join us and take on, with others, the challenges of this key growth area. We do not want, at this stage, to be prescriptive in our requirements of this new post, but intend to keep an open mind and consider innovative and creative solutions.
We therefore invite expressions of interest for this role; full CV and covering letter enclosing current salary details, to enable us to consider the best way forward.

Closing date: 27 August 2004 noon
We plan to contact all interested people by mid/late September.
