Study of Jersey’s grass snakes and slow-worms proposed

12 April 2013

Jersey’s Department of the Environment and the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology are offering a science graduate the chance to carry out a three-year study on the Island’s grass snakes and slow-worms.

The doctoral project will focus on the status and conservation of the free-living populations of both reptiles. The student will be based at the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology at the University of Kent, with periods of several weeks spent in Jersey for sampling and fieldwork.

Anyone who wants to apply should have a first or upper second class UK honours degree, a MSc or (or equivalent experience) in a relevant discipline such as conservation, genetics and/or wildlife management, and field experience of working with reptiles in Britain (particularly grass snakes). The deadline for applications is 10 May.
