The Natural History Museum has embarked on an ambitious and exciting masterplan in order to deliver its vision of a future where both people and the planet thrive. The Gardens Programme plays a significant role within this and will radically change our visitor welcome, enhance visitor access and engagement on-site and catalyse national action in support of the UKís biodiversity. Partnerships will be central to our approach, with relationships being built across the UK, including with national biodiversity-focused organisations, universities, youth organisations, museums and schools.

 

Scientific aspects of the programme will focus on developing new understanding of the UKís urban wildlife, development and application of new practical nature conservation tools, and delivery of an associated species identification, monitoring and habitat management training programme.

 

The role of UK Biodiversity Officer will be central to the formative development and (subject to funding) delivery of this scientific programme, both within the Natural History Museumís gardens and at a network of research sites across the UK.

 

We are looking for an experienced biologist with a deep interest in the UKís wildlife and practical experience of working with or within the UK ecological consultancy and practical nature conservation sectors. The successful candidate will be based in the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/uk-biodiversity), reporting to the Head of Centre, and will have a proven record of working on collaborative, multi-stakeholder projects.
