We wish to appoint an outstanding academic, whose research fits within the broad theme of Ecology or Evolutionary Biology.  An appointment would be preferred in behavioural ecology, conservation or evolutionary biology, but we welcome strong candidates from fields that would complement
existing research strengths in spatial ecology, population genetics, biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and services, adaptations to environmental change.

For either level of appointment it is necessary that you have an established track record of research and are well positioned to attract RCUK, EU or charity funding. At Lecturer level, we expect the appointed person to obtain external grant income within 2 years. For appointment at Associate Professor level, we expect the appointed person to have experience of gaining external funding.

You will be expected to contribute fully to our Biology, Zoology,
and Ecology undergraduate BSc and MSci programmes, as well as being
able to teach on our postgraduate programmes in Biology, and Wildlife
Conservation. We would also encourage applicants who are able to
develop and teach field courses. It is especially important that you
show enthusiasm and potential to teach innovatively across a wide range
of disciplines.

You will join the Centre for Biological Sciences, which is at the hub of
interdisciplinary initiatives through its engagement with the Institute
for Life Sciences (IfLS, http://www.southampton.ac.uk/ifls).  You will
be encouraged to pursue collaborative multidisciplinary research with
other groups across the university, especially within the Faculty of
Natural and Environmental Sciences (Ocean & Earth Science, Chemistry).

You should demonstrate:

evidence of distinction in research through high-quality publications;

ability or potential to obtain peer-reviewed funding in your research

thereby contributing to the programmes run by Biological Sciences;
