This year we require someone to take on a multipurpose role focusing on sustainable agriculture and access to fresh water in the face of climate change. We are looking for someone with lots of organic vegetable gardening and fruit growing experience in the tropics, preferably someone with Permaculture training. You also need to have a scientific background as the role will also include water testing for salinity and other measures as well as using some very exciting new electro-sonic technology to map the freshwater lens under the atoll. You will need to be an exacting person! Sailing or diving experience would be an advantage but not essential, although you need to feel comfortable on a yacht.
