The role will provide support to develop and deliver projects within the BTO’s Offshore Renewable Energy work programme. The postholder will help to develop new research projects with existing and new funders, leading on proposals and maintaining excellent client relationships. The postholder should also have strong reviewing, writing and analytical skills, to help support the delivery of projects. They should enjoy communicating with a wide range of stakeholders to assess their respective evidence needs, and with a wide range of colleagues to source specific expertise and design work packages to meet those needs.
Work themes are likely to focus on addressing key ornithological evidence gaps associated with the delivery of marine renewable energy. This may include: modelling the distribution and abundance of birds in the offshore environment; better understanding aspects of behaviour such as flight height and speed which may influence collision risk; and better understanding drivers of population change in UK seabird populations.
The postholder will be line-managed by Dr Aonghais Cook, BTO Strategic Lead for Offshore Renewable Energy Research, and will be based in the Wetland and Marine Research Team, led by Dr Niall Burton. The teams’ research explores the wide range of factors that may affect waterbird and seabird population dynamics, including climate change, habitat change and loss and the impacts of coastal and offshore developments, and the postholder would also be expected to work closely with Dr Liz Humphreys, BTO Strategic Lead for Seabird Research.
