This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious graduate in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, or a relevant field covering sensing and instrumentation, to fast-track their career development as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Associate. KTP supports partnerships between business and universities or research organisations, placing graduates (KTP Associates) to work on innovative high-profile projects. The successful candidate will undertake a 30-month collaborative project between Ocean Science Consulting Limited (OSC) and the Environmental Research Institute at the University of the Highlands and Islands (ERI-UHI). The post will be based at the company’s headquarters in Dunbar, East Lothian(although you may be required to work at ERI in Thurso).

The post-holder will lead development of an integrated system for marine mammal mitigation from offshore developments (e.g. windfarm, oil & gas, harbour construction, etc.) on marine mammals. This work will involve design, research into component selection and sourcing, requirements for operations in different jurisdictions, integrating the system components and instruments, and then testing and validating in the field.

The successful candidate will receive extensive practical and formal training, gain marketable skills, broaden their knowledge and expertise within an industrially relevant project, and gain valuable research and commercial experience from business and academic mentors.

Candidates should possess a Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, or a related discipline. A PhD is not essential for this post, but an awareness of research would be an advantage. The candidate will be expected work in Dunbar and should be self-motivated with an ability to work independently to tight deadlines and prioritise workloads as client requests come in. A willingness to undertake field trials offshore is essential.

The ideal candidate must be able to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders, e.g. academic and technical teams, sales and marketing personnel, existing company customers and potential new clients. Team working, flexibility and attention to detail will be key requirements.

Informal enquires can be made to Dr Benjamin Williamson, leader of the ERI’s ‘Renewable Energy and the Environment’ team: benjamin.williamson@uhi.ac.uk or Ms Sophie Cox, Consultant at OSC sc@osc.co.uk

Appointment will be for 30 months (subject to 6-month probationary period).

Closing date Monday 6 December 2021. Interviews planned for week starting 13 December 2021.
