How to locate job vacancies for environmental statisticians
The best places to find job vacancies are electronic mailing lists (particularly Allstat and Envstat), the newsletter RSS NEWS of the Royal Statistical Society which is issued monthly to all members of the Society, and New Scientist. Jobs are also listed on websites of organisations involved in environmental research and development, including NERC institutes, government agencies and universities. Nearly all jobs are in the public sector.
In many environmental research organisations, the scientific teams are multidisciplinary. Statisticians may be well qualified for jobs advertised under other titles, such as environmental modeller. It is therefore worth exploring the organisational structure of employers and pursuing jobs which might not initially be focused on statistical skills. There are some web-based sources for jobs in this sector, for example ENDS.
