we have a fantastic opportunity for an ecologist to join our rams defence contracts where we support dio in the management of housing stock including project works that often interface with protected species. the role will be required to act as a company subject matter expert, co-ordinating, supporting and assuring the quality and efficacy of the survey, licensing and monitoring works that we routinely outsource to dedicated ecological consultancies. remote/hybrid, central/north or scotland ecologists plays an important part in amey as an ambassador for ecology and conservation. as the subject matter expert provide effective guidance and direction on discussions and decisions with internal and external stakeholders providing effective and responsive technical support (on site and remote) in the areas of ecology and conservationto directly undertake and where appropriate to do so; check the accuracy of desk top surveys related to ecology as performed by othersensure that the quality and efficacy of the works undertaken by our ecological consultancies is fit for purposeactively support, monitor and pursue the progress of surveys conducted by external ecologists and eps license applications made on amey’s behalfensure the status of eps licence applications is clearly communicated to the project team, including suppliers where necessaryrespond to and manage technical queries pertaining to eps licenses and respond to incidents where damage/destruction or a roost or disturbance of bats has been reportedact as a company focal point for natural england and scottish natural heritageadvise the business on ecological consultancy appointments and to act as a liaison point for such organisationsmonitor, review and positively influence cost control in respect of ecological consultancy servicessupport the development of amey’s environmental management system processesdevelop, support and deliver relevant ecology and conservation related training materialscarry out focussed inspections and audits of our work when asked to do sosupport the business in its objective of quantifying the post scheme biodiversity benefits implemented after projects delivery has been completed.advise and work closely with design teams to help develop specifications for projects and identify more appropriate materials and wildlife friendly productsprovide specialist advice to the business in the emergent areas of landscape management, natural capital and sustainable catchment management. also provide basic legal advice on matters pertaining to ecology, conservation, and eps licensing we want to hear from you if you have: a degree in ecology or an associated subjectevidence of relevant ongoing cpd in the area of ecology / conservationexcellent communication skills at all levelsexcellent analytical skills, attention to detailexperience of managing or coordinating multiple projects at any one time and demonstrable field expertise in an ecological rolesound knowledge of bat conservation trust guidelines and policiesprevious demonstrable experience of working with bats in built environmentsprevious experience of handling european protected species (eps) license applicationsadvanced knowledge of relevant environmental lawsignificant experience of working with natural england and / or scottish natural heritage in addition to this, it would be desirable if you have experience in construction, housing property maintenance or related field tohelp you hit the ground running, although this is not essential as we will provide you with the required development you need to bring you up to speed.

research fellow in structural molecular biology are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? do you have an established background in structural molecular biology? do you want to further your career in one of the uks leading research-intensive universities? we are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to join a team of researchers investigating the structural basis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an inherited heart disease that affects more than 1 in 500 people. most mutations resulting in disease are found in either β-cardiac myosin heavy chain or cardiac myosin-binding protein-c (cmybp-c) yet the link between mutation and disease outcome is poorly characterised. by use of an integrative structural biology approach this research project will unravel structural-functional relationships between β-cardiac myosin and cmybp-c and the impact of disease mutation on those relationships. the project will use a combination of electron microscopy (negative-stain and cryo), structural mass spectrometry, biochemistry, biophysics, molecular modelling and cell biology methods. you should have a phd (or be close to completion) in biology, biochemistry, biophysics or a related discipline. you should have experience in the analysis of protein structure, dynamics and protein-protein interactions using either structural mass spectrometry methods (e.g. native mass spectrometry, chemical crosslinking, covalent footprinting and/or hydrogen-deuterium exchange), and/or cryo-electron microscopy, and complementary biophysical methods (e.g. circular dichroism, sds-page). you should also have experience in protein production from bacterial and, insect or/and mammalian cells. you will be based in the laboratory of dr charlie scarff (bhf intermediate fellow) and will work closely with collaborators at leeds (dr james ault, dr sarah harris and prof. michelle peckham), across the uk and internationally (prof. howard white, evms and prof. donald winkelmann, rutgers). you will join the vibrant astbury centre community and benefit from the world-leading facilities we have in the astbury biostructure laboratory (two titan krios microscopes) and faculty of biological sciences (dedicated hdx-ms system, uhmr q-exactive and orbitrap exploris). to explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact: doctor charlie scarff bhf jacqueline murray coomber fellow, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
