Are you looking to develop your scientific career with a company focused on improving the environmental impact of souring metals used in EV batteries?

Would you like to develop your career with a company that owns proprietary technology to process these minerals to enable the minimising of environmental impact in sourcing materials used in new environmental technology?

On offer is a key leadership role with a company that is on track to become a world-leading producer of base and strategic metals obtained from polymetallic nodule deposits containing manganese, nickel, copper and cobalt. The company's objective is to produce the metals required for the green transition with less environmental and social impact than the world is doing today.

This position will be responsible for providing scientific and technical support for offshore environmental baseline and environmental and social impact assessment programs, including significant effort in the finalisation of the company's environmental impact assessment.

The person:

  • PhD in a relevant field (e.g., environmental science, environmental engineering, oceanography, marine science / ecology, deep sea ecology, data science) with relevant industry experience.
  • Professional experience in offshore consulting may serve as a replacement for a non-relevant educational background.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing business that's committed to improving the environment.
