Ocean Science Consulting Limited (OSC) seeks regularly short-term and longer term high-calibre employees and contractors. In particular we often require:
Or graduates (minimum 2:1) with knowledge and experience in the following areas:
OSC takes on interns regularly. Internship positions are voluntary, and open to candidates of all ages (school-leavers to post graduate-level, or those interested in a career change) and disciplines. Internships are office based, and duties vary substantially depending on work required at the time and personal interests.
We encourage electronic submission (firstname.lastname@example.org) with ‘OSC Internship’ in the subject heading, otherwise posted hardcopies are also accepted. Please include your CV and a cover letter describing why you are interested in an internship with OSC.
OSC occasionally co-supervise academic theses. We are currently supervising a PhD student in the Maths department at the University of Edinburgh who is modelling porpoise & dolphin detection from C-PODs, and have previously supervised undergraduates studying rigs-to-reefs.
Undergraduates, graduates (minimum grade of 2:1), and post graduates interested in completing their thesis with OSC are invited to submit applications electronically to email@example.com with ‘OSC Education’ in the subject heading, otherwise posted hardcopies are also accepted. Please include your CV and a cover letter describing your research interests and why you are interested in having OSC involved in supervision.
For several years, OSC personnel have assisted with teaching University undergraduate field courses to Cambridge, Leeds and Heriot-Watt students in marine biology. Courses on marine life identification and survey techniques have been carried out at various locations such as the Field Studies Council’s Dale Fort facilities in Pembrokeshire, Wales, and Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory in Oban. We currently have academic links with the Universities of Edinburgh and Environmental Research Institute. We have also provided marine biology courses and underwater guides for the recreational SCUBA diver training industry.
All educational institutions are invited to contact us for further details.
