Allaby Research Group
Spring 2018: We have an exciting opportunity available for someone to join the EcoWarwicker team!
EcoWarwicker Ecological Forensics offer a DNA analysis service which is utilised by many ecological consultancies, private individuals and wildlife enthusiasts.
At present the majority of the requests we handle are for British bats, but we also provide DNA analysis for other species of interest and concern such as otters, mink, pine martens, badgers and rodents, such as water vole and red squirrel.
We have even been involved in the hunt for big cats in the UK, which is quite exciting, and have identified the odd beached whale. We also run a service to examine potential samples that may have cat or canid (including foxes) DNA too.
You would be working on both the admin and lab based sides of the operation. You will need to be able to communicate effectively with our clients and have a high level of attention to detail as we get very busy during the Summer months.
