The School of Biological Sciences seeks a permanent (tenured) Lecturer in Behavioural Ecology.

Applicants must hold a PhD in a relevant field of ecology. We are especially interested in candidates with teaching and research interests in behavioural ecology with a strong field component to their research, and who can also contribute to teaching in conservation and animal diversity.

The successful candidate will need to exhibit an established record of, or a substantial potential for, a programme of research in Behavioural Ecology that is innovative and impactful. A strong commitment to effective teaching and to postgraduate supervision is also required.

The staff of the School of Biological Sciences are experts in their chosen fields and through their extensive research, experience, and collaboration with the scientific world they provide a first-class teaching experience. Staff have expertise which spans the full range of contemporary biology, from ecology, marine biology, plant biology, ecological restoration, conservation and natural history, to biochemistry, biotechnology, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, and biomedical sciences.

The School supports two applied research centres: The Centre for Biodiversity and Restoration Ecology [CBRE] and the Centre for Biodiscovery.

Research is supported through achieving a high success rate in winning external research funding and scholarships. The School's graduates are highly regarded in industry and academia, and many have attained prestigious graduate scholarships internationally.

The successful candidate will be expected to commence in the role early 2020.
