48-month Independent Research Fellowship, University of St Andrews, Scotland

The School of Biology at the University of St Andrews is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic independent research fellow (IRF). The successful candidate will have or develop an innovative and high-profile research programme in the biological sciences. The School has a number of research strengths, but of key relevance for Evoldir subscribers are those in Evolution, Behaviour and Ecology, spanning molecules through to whole organisms. Ideally the IRF will conduct research complementary to the School's current research expertise, for instance as encompassed by the Centre of Evolution, Genes and Genomics, the Scottish Oceans Institute, and the Institute for Behavioural and Neural Sciences.

You will have a degree in the life sciences and will hold a relevant PhD. We are looking to appoint an early career stage researcher who is in the process of developing their own research programme, and who will prove successful in attracting funding for their research and publishing high-quality research findings in top-ranking international journals. Candidates with existing or pending fellowships are strongly encouraged to apply.

This is a 48-month appointment with an anticipated start date of 01 November 2011 or as soon as possible.
