Ocean Career: Planblue Marine Scientist

We are combining underwater hyperspectral imaging and AI-based automated data processing to map the seafloor quicker, more efficiently and in greater detail.

By ground-truthing aerial and satellite imagery, we help to unlock blue nature-based solutions around the globe and contribute to revealing the seafloor’s true economic and ecological value.

Our team

Over the past couple of years, our engineering team has steadily grown to 10+ people. Since we do both hardware and software, we have a wide range of specialties for a relatively small team ranging from mechanical design to electronics and software.

What You'll Be Doing

You will be part of the Data Science Team, and work with our scientists and engineers, your task is to further planblue’s methodology on how we estimate carbon stock in seagrass meadows, using our unique seafloor monitoring solution. You’ll be responsible for finalizing the methodology to be submitted to an open access, peer-reviewed journal, and you’ll process any review requests. As you’ll be working together with both scientists and engineers, collaboration, communication, and coordination are a big part of success in your role.

  • Coordinate and write the technical paper on our methodology.
  • Directly communicate with the scientific journal as part of the publication process.
  • Evaluate the thoroughness of our methodology and provide your insights to improve it where needed.

What We Hope You Bring


  • A proven track record with at least 10 published scientific papers
  • Expert in seagrass physiology, sediment interactions or carbon cycling
  • Working experience in seagrass conservation or restoration projects
  • A Ph.D. in Marine Science or a related field
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, especially in English


Bonus Points if You Have


  • Experience working in a start-up environment
  • Experience in using GIS programs, such as ArcGIS and QGIS
  • Experience with programming languages, such as Python
  • Experience in habitat mapping
