Placements now available with Marine Scotland (closing date 29 June)
Marine Scotland is planning to host two NERC Innovation Placements. The placements, which are currently open to applications, will look at policy areas related to marine renewables, and scientific areas related to underwater noise.
Marine Acoustics Placement
During this placement, the candidate will have the opportunity to work with underwater noise data from across the east coast of Scotland. We’re looking for someone who can help us to review data collection processes and develop analytical and reporting processes.
Marine Planning and Policy Placement
During this placement, the candidate will work to support the development of a marine plan for floating offshore wind. They will also contribute to work on the Scottish Offshore Renewable Research Framework (SpORRAn), which is a tool used by Marine Scotland to identify knowledge gaps around marine renewables policy.
