SEPA’s Chief Executive Terry A’Hearn has a vision for SEPA “the only successful 
societies in the 21st Century will be ones that are very low in environmental 
impact. This will require major innovation. SEPA knows we need to support 
people and businesses across Scotland to do this. So, we need the best people 
working for us to help Scotland be a hotbed of innovation that will drive 21st 
Century success.  With this is mind SEPA is looking to recruit a Scientist 

Providing advice on the modelling and monitoring of oceanographic dispersion 
processes, you’ll play a key role in SEPA’s mission to protect the Scottish 
environment for generations to come.

You’ll provide modelling, monitoring and analysis of oceanographic processes in 
support of investigations and projects. We’ll expect you to work with 
colleagues to proactively develop tools, methods, documentation and procedures 
to ensure even better results.  SEPA receives modelling and monitoring reports 
in support of applications to discharge waste to the sea. You’ll 
comprehensively assess those reports - from the scientific methods used through 
to key assumptions and risks.

Whether writing reports, delivering presentations or influencing change, you’ll 
need to demonstrate excellent communication skills and innovative thought. 
Ideally qualified to postgraduate level in a relevant subject, your knowledge 
spans oceanographic processes and instrumentation, key concepts in marine 
chemistry/biology, computer programming, data analysis and visualisation and 
methods for assessing waste discharge to the sea. The ability to apply 
analytical and numerical models and process data to achieve practical outcomes 
within these fields is essential.  More detailed information on this post is
