The Duncan Louis Stewart Fellow in Natural History -School Naturalist

Applications are invited for this Fellowship, which is tenable for two years from 1 January 2020.

This unique and inspiring opportunity to join Winchester College as the Duncan Louis Stewart Fellow in Natural History was established in 2016 in memory of Wykehamist Duncan Stewart, a passionate advocate of natural history, with the aim of promoting an interest in all aspects of natural history throughout the school. The Fellow will join the academic staff of the school and will work with the Biology, Geography, Art and other departments to engender in pupils a deeper knowledge of, and respect for, ecology, the environment and the natural world.  It is recognised that the impact of this post will be felt well into the future and beyond Winchester’s doors.

The DLS Fellow will make use of the school’s extensive collections and resources to promote knowledge among pupils of our place in the local environment of Hampshire and the greater world around us.  The Fellow will be responsible for organising and delivering a suite of activities including organising speakers to the Natural History Society and the school, developing relationships with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight conservation groups, and arranging appropriate placements for interested pupils.

This is predominantly a term-time position with the expectation that the successful applicant will lead some planned study trips in the UK and abroad during school holidays. Exact hours of work will be discussed at interview as we will consider both full and part-time options.

Periods of time allocated for the Fellow’s personal research and/or projects may be agreed with the Headmaster.

This position includes a generous benefits package, including a pension auto-enrolment scheme.
