Researcher – Chemicals

Protecting the ocean is part of the Marine Conservation Society’s DNA. While the ocean faces many threats and challenges to biodiversity and sustainability, the amount of pollution entering our environment exceeds the earths planetary boundaries. The Marine Conservation Society is looking for someone interested in working with the clean seas team to deliver its aims to reduce pollution at source and move towards a zero emissions target for pollutants.

You will be mostly working day to day with our chemical specialist and therefore candidates should have a strong background in ecotoxicology or chemistry with a strong environmental slant. An excellent foundation in undergraduate chemistry (or equivalent relevant experience) is an absolute must for this post, and therefore candidates without this will not be considered.

Chemical regulation in the UK is currently at a crossroads and we must ensure that the marine environment is better protected from the impacts of harmful chemicals. Your role will involve conducting research to support work around consultations for the UK Chemicals Strategy and regulatory options around specific chemicals of emerging concern, like the highly persistent group of chemicals, PFAS.
