·         Experience in writing and sharing clear, concise Matlab code within a team. 

·         Analysis, presentation and delivery of data through a range of techniques, plots and data formats specific to client needs. For example, wave spectral, turbulence and tidal harmonic analysis, 2D and 3D current profiles and 2D vector spatial plots.

Minimum requirements:

·         BSc/MSc in oceanography or a related subject. 

·         Proficiency in Matlab.
