Hi All



Please see note below on positions becoming available with us very soon. Apologies if cross-posting means you receive multiple copies.



With kind regards

Multiple Appointments in Ecology and Conservation

University of Exeter, Cornwall Campus (UK)

 

The School of Biosciences, University of Exeter is seeking to recruit up to four new staff for the second phase of growth on its Cornwall Campus.

<http://www.uec.ac.uk/biology/index.shtml>. 

 

These posts will build on the existing strengths on the Cornwall Campus, which currently consists of 13 academic staff. Posts are available at all levels up to chair.

 

Chair / Reader in Ecology or Conservation Biology

We are seeking to recruit someone who will provide leadership in the area of ecology and/or conservation biology following the retirement of Professor Bryant. We would be particularly interested in appointing someone with strengths in field ecology or conservation but encourage all interested parties to apply.

 

Lectureships in Ecology and Conservation Biology

We have between two and four lectureships available in the field of ecology and conservation biology. We are looking to build on our existing strengths and buoyant undergraduate and postgraduate degrees programmes in ecology and conservation. We would be particularly interested in recruiting vertebrate and plant ecologists, in population and community ecology and conservation biology and genetics.

 

Timing

Posts are available from September 2006

Further information:

Interested applicants are encouraged to approach Prof. M.R. Evans ([log in to unmask])  or Prof. N.J. Talbot ([log in to unmask]).

Positions in Ecology and Conservation Biology

The School of Biosciences on the University of Exeter's Cornwall Campus has now been established for two years and currently consists of 13 academic staff (4 professors, 3 readers, 2 senior lecturers and 4 lecturers). This represents the end of the first phase of development, we are now seeking to recruit for the second phase and are planning for the third phase which will see the expansion of this group to approximately 30 academic staff. The staff on the Cornwall Campus all work within the Centre for Ecology and Conservation and future growth will be broadly within this area of biology. We have buoyant undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in ecology and conservation (currently recruiting 50 at undergraduate and 30 at postgraduate level). The group has a combined research income of about 1.5M and a research postgraduate population of 25. 

 

Chair / Reader in Ecology and / or Conservation Biology

 

Following the retirement of Professor Bryant, we are seeking to recruit someone to provide leadership in ecology and / or conservation biology and to inform the development of the group as we move into future. 

 

We would be interested in considering anyone whose research programme fell within the general areas of ecology or conservation biology. However, we would be particularly interested in recruiting someone with interests and expertise in field ecology. We would also benefit from recruiting someone whose work would utilise molecular or conservation genetics. The successful applicant will have a track record of obtaining external funding from a variety of sources, both governmental and non-governmental as appropriate for their research programme. He/she should have supervised research postgraduate students. Importantly the successful applicant will have a series of publications in high profile journals sufficient to be considered an international figure in the field by his/her peers.

 

We would expect any recruit at this level to have a teaching load (at both undergraduate and postgraduate level) commensurate with the maintenance of their research programme and to participate in the leadership, management and administration of the school across both campuses.

 

The successful applicant will be in a position to influence the appointment of the more junior positions. It may also be worth any applicants considering that between 2008 and 2012 the school of biosciences has plans to expand to 30-35 academic staff within ecology, evolution and conservation. These plans are externally funded as part of the development of the Combined Universities of Cornwall (of which the University of Exeter is a major partner) that is a crucial part of the EU funded initiative 'building the knowledge economy'.

 

Lectureships in Ecology and Conservation Biology.

 

We have between two and four lectureships available in the field of ecology and conservation biology, the precise number will depend on the level of appointment of the senior position. We have strengths in vertebrate conservation, behavioural ecology, population and evolutionary ecology. We are looking to build on our existing strengths and expand into new cognate areas. We also wish to maintain our buoyant undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in ecology and conservation and to some extent the appointments have to fit with teaching as well as research priorities. We are interested in considering any suitably qualified applicant but are particularly interested in recruiting vertebrate and plant ecologists, in population and community ecology and conservation biology and genetics. 

 

The successful applicant will have a track record of obtaining external funding. He/she should have contributed to the supervision of research postgraduate students and will have a series of publications in high profile journals both those specific to the field as well as more general publications.

 

We would expect any recruit at this level to have a teaching load commensurate with the maintenance of their research programme. A contribution to teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level will be expected.
