3 month placements - MASTS/NMIT.Aquaculture Unit
Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology
Dr Mark James (MASTS Operations Director) has recently returned from a trip to New Zealand. As part of this trip he visited the Aquaculture Unit at the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology. This is principally a technical college with an established aquaculture diploma programme and resources that allow for research into current aquaculture processes and systems, particularly in mussels, salmon and oysters. Check out NMIT's link.
NMIT are keen to link with MASTS and would welcome individuals on 3 month placements (between June and September). During this placement, you would gain teaching experience and have the chance to use some of the research facilities for your own work. MASTS would be able to offer £1k towards the cost of your travel, and we would hope for a similar in kind commitment from NMIT (this is to be discussed on a case by case basis).
This opportunity would suit later-stage postgraduate students or early career post-docs and lecturers. If you are interested in exploring this possibility further, please email a copy of your CV to MASTS together with an outline of your teaching/research experience and a short summary of how you would like to spend your three months in NMIT. If you would like to discuss this opportunity informally, please contact Dr Mark James on 01334 467312.
