Senior Freshwater Invertebrate Biologist

£32,000-35,000 p/a depending on experience

Freshwater Habitats Trust is recruiting a Senior Freshwater Invertebrate Biologist based in our
Oxford office with regular travel to sites. This is a 35 hours a week full time role with 25
days annual leave plus bank holidays. The post is initially a 1-year contract, with the
expectation of conversion to a permanent position for suitable applicants.

Freshwater Habitats Trust is a friendly, evidence-based, conservation charity, tackling
the freshwater biodiversity crisis through policy, research and innovative practical
conservation projects.

We are looking for an experienced freshwater invertebrate biologist to undertake standard
freshwater invertebrate surveys of streams, ponds, ditches and other freshwater habitats, and
to identify invertebrate samples at both family and species level. The appointee should be able
to demonstrate the ability to analyse and report results in writing and verbally and, ideally,
to design, develop and implement new projects. Depending on the interests of the successful
candidate, there is potential to spend up to 30% of the job working in other areas of
freshwater research or practice, including non-invertebrate survey work, habitat creation, data
analysis and interpretation and the publication of research and/or policy papers. Travel to
survey locations will require a full driving licence and use of own car

For the right person this is a significant opportunity to develop skills and experience and make
a substantial contribution to the conservation of freshwater invertebrates and their habitats,
with a particular focus on small waters and the protected species they support.

An application pack is available from the Freshwater Habitats Trust Website.
