Lectureship in Ecology/Evolution

As part of a major recruitment drive across the School of Biological Sciences, we are seeking to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Ecology/Evolution. This post will be closely aligned with the research and teaching activity undertaken within the School and the Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences (IBES; www.abdn.ac.uk/ibes ), in particular the Ecology & Evolution research programme. This programme has strengths in integrating theoretical, statistical and molecular approaches to understanding ecological and evolutionary dynamics, and in applying this understanding to conserving biodiversity under environmental change.

We seek applicants who have or are building international reputations for research and have demonstrated aptitude for innovation, knowledge exchange and effective collaboration, and who will complement and enhance our existing areas of expertise. While exceptional individuals from all relevant disciplines are encouraged to apply, we particularly seek applicants in two research domains: 1) quantitative or theoretical ecology – broadly defined as using mathematical, statistical and/or simulation modelling approaches to understand ecological systems at the individual, population or community level; 2) animal evolutionary ecology/ecological genomics – using empirical molecular genetic, ‘omic or quantitative genetic approaches to understand how animals respond or adapt to challenges in their natural environment or environmental change.

Applicants will have a PhD in a relevant biological science and an excellent track record of publication in high profile journals. They will possess a vision for developing a research programme at the leading edge of ecology and/or evolutionary biology and, commensurate with experience, demonstrate either a track record of, or clear potential for, securing the competitive research funding required to achieve their vision. Experience of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level, with enthusiasm and aptitude for effective student supervision, will be advantageous.
