I work part-time in the MASTS Directorate and part-time with NatureScot. At NatureScot I am marine planning and policy advisor, particularly working on a broad range of policy topics with the National Marine Plan, the roll-out of Regional Marine Planning Partnerships and an array of related policy streams.
With MASTS a key activity is coordinating the People Ocean Planet initiative (www.peopleoceanplanet.com), which is all about interdisciplinary and cross-sector approaches to marine science delivery, outreach and impact. We’re developing a lot of arts-based public engagement at the moment, plus some other science communication activities and some ocean literacy research. Happy to partner across the UK and beyond on specific projects or to enable exciting collaborations across and beyond our network. Currently seeking someone to work with us (closing date 16th Aug!): see https://www.vacancies.st-andrews.ac.uk/Vacancies/W/2981/0/307936/889/masts-network-development-and-support-job-share-ad2236nb
