Postdoctoral Researcher

MKO Research is a non-profit, independent section of MKO dedicated to conducting scientific research to address gaps in knowledge on the interactions between wildlife and wind energy developments. Lying at the interphase between industry and academia, the research group is based in the private sector and hosted by MKO (a 60+ employee specialist environmental and planning consultancy) and has links to academia through active collaborations with several universities.

MKO Research is seeking to recruit a researcher at postdoctoral level with a PhD in ecology or conservation to conduct desk- and field-based studies on the interactions between hen harriers and wind farms in Ireland. Specific research topics will include analysis of hen harrier spatial ecology and territory occupancy. Work will be open access and peer-reviewed publication driven, as the aim is to conduct research that will advance wildlife-wind energy knowledge and that can inform environmental policy. The position is initially for 12 months, open to extension on review.
