• develop practical recommendations for the use of research in the field of environment protection;

• plan and carry out experimental environmental research;

• develop research technical documentation to manage the implementation of research work;

• prepare materials, teach students, supervise their research work, develop training methodological support, provide research and expert analytical activity in the field of environmental impact on a human and other living organisms at various organization levels;

• analyze environmental activity of organizations and institutions by branches of the economy, environmental expertise and the assessment of economic activity impact on the environment;

• organize design, expert-advice and management activity in the field of environmental science, rational nature management;

• develop plans and innovation activity programs, feasibility studies on innovative projects in the field of ecology, nature management and environment protection.

Requirements completed higher education (bachelor’s degree);

• successfully pass the interview both on language proficiency (English or Russian) and profile disciplines.
