Ocean Science Consulting Limited (OSC) is a privately-owned technology-focused marine-science company involved principally in the global supply of underwater noise and marine mammal monitoring, and risk mitigation services. OSC reinvests >80% of profits into Research & Development (R&D), orientated primarily towards high-level research on the harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) and other marine mammal species, Rigs-to-Reefs using Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) footage, underwater noise measurement and modelling, and improving marine mammal and environmental monitoring standards worldwide. See www.osc.co.uk/publications-and-press-covers.
OSC seeks to expand its UK-based team. This is a rare opportunity for permanent employment as a Statistical Modeller. The commercial post doc role involves working primarily in OSC’s R&D wing, although suitable candidates may also be considered for a combination of consultancy/commercial duties. It is anticipated that over the course of the first year, the candidate will bring to completion ca. five manuscripts for submission to peer-reviewed journals. Applicants must therefore be able to source, consolidate, analyse, interpret, and present these data in the form of high-level, peer-reviewed papers, that must be brought to completion on commercial and not academic timescales (i.e. weeks, not months), with minimal supervision from line managers. This is a highly unusual position for academic research in a commercial consultancy. The candidate may also be presented with urgent commercial requests as these arise and must therefore be able to switch from one project to another. Prioritisation is of high importance.
