The Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) in Lowestoft, UK, is looking for a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst.
GIS technologies are now at the core of many areas of science delivery in Cefas related to fisheries, other human activities and the marine environment. To keep pace with growing demand, we are looking for a GIS technical specialist to contribute to our high level marine ecosystem and fisheries research.
MAIN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The post holder will be responsible for providing GIS support on a range of projects across the marine environment. You will be responsible for developing GIS and mapping solutions for projects in consultation with a senior GIS Analyst. You will be responsible for providing advice and training as required to other scientific GIS users.
You will be required to take responsibility for work programmes specifically related to GIS and to deliver milestones as required. Research areas are likely to be already defined but there will be some freedom to develop research within an overall project plan.
This is an exciting opportunity for an individual with skills in GIS and an interest in applying those skills in the context of fisheries and marine environmental management in the UK, Europe, and internationally.
The position is open to UK, Commonwealth and European Economic Area (EEA) Nationals and certain non EEA members.
