Field Coordinator (Marine Biologist), Myanmar Programme
Fauna & Flora International

Salary: USD 28,800 per annum
Start Date: 23 April 2017
Duration of Contract: 31 December 2018
Location: Pathein, Myanmar

Working closely with local partners, the Asia-Pacific Programme currently includes a broad range of species and landscape targeted conservation initiatives in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Myanmar, and has country programme offices in Phnom Penh, Nanning, Jakarta, Yangon and Hanoi. Around 70 projects are being implemented in the region by a team of approximately 200 staff, consultants, volunteers and partner organisations with an annual regional budget of approximately USD 10 million.

Myanmar, the second largest country in mainland Southeast Asia, is home to a wealth of biodiversity. The country still harbours large tracts of forest and many charismatic and unique species. In stark contrast to the country’s biological riches, over two thirds of the country’s human population currently live below the poverty line and depend on natural resources for their survival. Despite their high dependence on natural resources, local people have been excluded from decisions concerning the country’s protected areas. Yet this situation is slowly changing. For the first time, grass roots organisations are being established to address issues of environmental governance and human welfare.

FFI is working with these emerging organisations from the snowy and mountainous north of the country in Kachin State to the densely forested and tropical south in Tanintharyi Region. In partnership with Government, NGOs and civil society, FFI’s work in Myanmar covers a range of diverse subjects including working on threatened species, forest, freshwater, karst and marine ecosystems, building skills in protected area management, engaging with the agriculture sector (palm oil) and awareness raising on the issues facing the country as it develops.

FFI is now seeking a Field Coordinator (Marine Biologist) to provide services to its Myanmar Programme. Under the supervision of the Myanmar Country Director, and in close consultation with the FFI Marine team, university staff and international researchers, you will facilitate the technical delivery of the capacity building project to support marine science departments of local universities. This project aims to lay the foundations for future involvement in biodiversity assessment, environmental impact assessments and monitoring. You will organise and facilitate training events, provide support to students in their educational development, coordinate and participate in field assessments, collate, review and edit training and survey reports and support the dive team in data analysis and development or a Reef Check report.

You will have a BSc or equivalent-level qualification in marine biology or other relevant subject, with strong field assessment and survey skills, including experience in coral reef surveys (notably reef check methodology) and familiarity with seagrass surveys, particularly Seagrass Network monitoring protocol. You will be confident in organising and facilitating training and in supporting student educational development, with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, supervision and mentoring skills.

Fluency in spoken and written English is essential. Some knowledge of the Burmese language would be an advantage.

Programme Assistant, Conservation Science and Design
Fauna & Flora International

Salary: Circa £20,000 per annum
Start Date: As soon as possible
Duration of Contract: One year fixed term contract, with potential to extend subject to business need and funding availability
Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, UK

Good conservation decision-making depends on good information. The latest findings from the biological and social sciences as well as economic and policy arenas should inform these decisions. Local teams are often best placed to enhance and filter such information. The Conservation Science and Design team works closely with, and provides support for, locally-based staff and partners, which ensures decisions are based on a good understanding of the local situation, and at the same time enables us to take a pragmatic role in the development of FFI as an organisation.

We focus on a number of key areas:
• strategic development of our conservation work – currently focused on climate change, threatened tree conservation and marine
• implementing robust approaches to allocating conservation funding – through management of Halcyon Land & Sea funds (which focuses on securing priority conservation areas), the Fondation Segré Conservation Fund at FFI, the Flagship Species Fund, the Global Trees Campaign and also co-ordination of reviews for external grant funds
• promoting effective monitoring and evaluation within FFI – focusing on cross-organisational impact reporting
• offering support on issues relating to technical delivery within projects
• providing direct support and advice to regional and thematic teams on any issues relating to Conservation Science or the specific work of our team

FFI is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Programme Assistant to ensure effective support to the Conservation Science and Design Programme. The successful candidate will assist the Programme Director and Conservation Science and Design staff in delivering the programme’s targets, through programme coordination, administration, fundraising, and communications. This position is based in FFI’s headquarters in Cambridge, UK.

You will have a degree in a relevant discipline or equivalent experience in conservation or a related field. You will have strong administration, organisational and time management skills and a structured and methodical approach to work. Technical skills in a relevant field and experience of working with NGOs would be advantageous. With excellent communication skills you will be a self-motivated team player, but equally able to work independently. You will have a proven ability to write for a range of audiences. Fluency in English is essential.
