Job Description

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a passion to educate the next generation of undergraduate and post graduate Conservation Ecologists? Do you have an established background in Global Conservation Ecologists? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading Universities in research and teaching excellence? 

We are looking to expand our core expertise in global conservation by recruiting an academic specialising in one or more of the following areas: conservation ecology, global change biology, population/ community ecology, quantitative ecology, or a related area, with existing links with conservation management organisations or a plan for developing such relationships. We are particularly interested to hear from animal ecologists.

You will continue to build on your existing international networks and research focus, as well as fostering new local, national, and international networks in academia and conservation. Working across the boundary between fundamental and applied research, you will strive for science that makes a real-world difference. You should have a PhD in conservation ecology or a related discipline with a track record of research outputs in refereed publications of internationally excellent quality.
