We invite applications from candidates with research interests in ecology, and with the ability to teach in our undergraduate programmes in this area. We are looking for candidates with an excellent publication record, an exciting research programme and demonstrating the potential to acquire grant funding.

The Department’s expertise spans the biological sciences from molecular and biomedical sciences to ecology, evolution and behaviour. This post aims to build on and expand our research portfolio and will contribute to the teaching in our degrees. Applicants are expected to design and supervise research projects for our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.
