The Environmental Research Institute (ERI) is a unique research centre situated in the town of Thurso in the northern Highlands of Scotland. It is part of the North Highland College, one of the partners in the UHI Millennium Institute; the emergent ‘University of the Highlands and Islands’.
Together with their partners at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), they have successfully secured £4 M funding for a unique multi-disciplinary programme to develop applied and fundamental research that supports the development of marine renewable energy in Scotland.
Funded by Highlands & Islands Enterprise (HIE), the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the MaREE programme aims to address issues of ‘Resource and Risk’, ‘Environmental Impacts’ and ‘Sustainability’. They now seek to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to oversee the leadership and management of the MaREE programme.
