Organisation Overview

Blue Ventures is an award-winning marine conservation organisation working to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities. We’re committed to protecting marine biodiversity in ways that benefit coastal people. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and where there is a fundamental unmet need to support human development.

Summary Job Description

The role of the field scientist involves planning, coordinating and participating in all expedition research and community outreach activities carried out on site, under the management and guidance of the Expedition Manager, and contributing to the conservation goals of Blue Ventures and their partners. The role involves working closely with the conservation research team in the UK to identify and develop research areas, as well as responsibility for collection and collation of data and the analysis and reporting of research results.

Field Scientists are primarily responsible for the development and implementation of the expedition volunteer training programme, teaching and providing assistance to our volunteers during the science training periods at the beginning of each volunteer expedition, supervising volunteers to achieve the survey aims of Blue Ventures and working closely with other staff members to disseminate research results and information to relevant parties. Additional duties are shared by all site staff and include support in the day to day running of the project, endorsement of site rules and regulations, and regular communication with research staff in Andavadoaka and London.
