The School of Biological Sciences is entering an exciting new phase of development. It moved into the state-of-the-art Life Sciences Building in 2014, and this provides extensive laboratory teaching facilities. In 2018, the School will become a core component of the new Faculty of Life Sciences. We seek at least three new Lecturers and Senior Lecturers across all biological disciplines, but especially in Animal behaviour and in Behavioural ecology, with broad-scale approaches using genomics, neuroscience and mathematical modelling, and linking to global environmental challenges. We are also looking for applications from a broad array of integrative biological disciplines, including metagenomics, epigenetics, phylogenomics, comparative phylogenetics, bio-engineering, and next generation molecular ecology.
We also seek a Teaching Fellow, to provide innovation and guidance in the development of our ambitious undergraduate teaching programmes in Biology and in Zoology. The candidate will have experience in student-focused learning and in introducing innovative approaches to engage large numbers of students in the intellectual and practical challenges of a research-led teaching programme.
Three posts are pathway 1 (research + teaching):
