Fish Tracking Coordinator

The Atlantic Salmon Trust is looking to appoint a Salmon and Sea Trout Tracking Co-ordinator to stimulate, develop, and where appropriate, manage fish telemetry projects and associated teams across the UK.

Whilst this permanent position will be based in Battleby, Perthshire in Scotland, the role will involve working in collaboration with other organisations and partners in fish telemetry projects across Europe and North America.

The postholder will provide the focal point for all salmon and sea trout telemetry projects within the Trust, with the aim of supporting and providing information for the Likely Suspects Framework. This will be achieved by:

  • Having an understanding of fish tracking projects in the UK and further afield, and maintaining databases to this effect.
  • Working with partners to identify gaps in our understanding of salmon and sea trout movements so that we may fill them through targeted research to better understand them and the factors affecting fish survival.
  • Where appropriate, creating and/or leading partnerships to deliver targeted research programmes.
  • Acting as a central hub of information and practical resources for organisations wanting to undertake fish telemetry projects.

Closing Date for applications is 24th March 2020.
