Research Assistant – ecology of coastal marine artificial structures

Research Assistant – ecology of coastal marine artificial structures

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year research assistantship at University College Dublin which will focus on mapping artificial structures on the east coast of Ireland, assessing their physical characteristics and characterising biota and ecosystem processes on them, on nearby natural analogues and on experimentally enhanced structures in a range of contexts.

Additional funding will be made available to contribute to tuition fees if the successful applicant wishes to undertake a PhD during the contract.

This research will contribute to an interdisciplinary project (Ecostructure), part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation Programme 2014-2020, to raise awareness of eco-engineering solutions to the challenge of coastal adaptation to climate change by providing developers and regulators with accessible tools and resources.

The aim is to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated individual whose laboratory, field and analytical skills are complemented by good communication and reporting skills. A BSc degree in a relevant discipline is required, minimum 2.1 honours or equivalent.

Further details of the post are available via the Job Vacancies link at www.ucd.ie/hr; job reference 009383. All applications must be made online via that link before 5pm on Friday 23 June.

Informal enquiries can be made to Assoc Prof Tasman Crowe, UCD Earth Institute and School of Biology and Environmental Science, tasman.crowe@ucd.ie.

Postdoc Fellowships Cultural Value of Coastlines

Postdoc Fellowships Cultural Value of Coastlines

University College Dublin invites applications for two Postdoctoral Fellowships on the Irish Research Council New Horizons Project, The Cultural Value of Coastlines:

Assessing the Cultural Influences and Impacts of Ecosystem Change on the Irish Sea Coasts

(one fellowship in humanities, one in ecology, both for 15 months).

The Cultural Value of Coastlines brings together environmental humanities and environmental science researchers in a transdisciplinary team to investigate the role of culture (aesthetics, heritage, sense of place and identity) in determining human uses and values of the sea and coastlines, and the effects upon culture of changes to marine and coastal environments. The project focuses on three interrelated questions:

  • How do coastal and marine environments contribute cultural benefits to coastal communities?
  • How is the cultural value of coastal and marine environments dependent upon ecosystem functions and conditions, and how does this relationship vary?
  • How can the cultural benefits of coastal and maritime environments be assessed effectively so as to contribute directly to marine spatial planning, cultural heritage management, and sustainability governance?

The research team will work closely with coastal communities around the Irish Sea to address these questions.

Full details of the post are available at: http://www.ucd.ie/hr/jobvacancies/ – using the job reference codes: 009026 (humanities) and 009027 (environmental science).

The deadline for applications is March 7th 2017.

Informal enquiries may be made to Prof. John Brannigan (john.brannigan@ucd.ie) or Prof. Tasman Crowe (tasman.crowe@ucd.ie). The expected start date for the positions is June 1st 2017.
