This is an exciting opportunity for a talented individual to join the University of Brighton's School of Applied Sciences as a Lecturer in mammal ecology. Based at our Moulsecoomb campus, you'll work within a vibrant and dynamic ecology and conservation team who collaborate closely together and with other disciplines (e.g. School of Art and Media and School of Humanities and Social Science). Our location within The Living Coast Biosphere and on the edge of the South Downs National Park gives us easy access to a wealth of field sites (terrestrial, fresh water and marine) for practical teaching and research.
You will be an experienced mammal ecologist and will be expected to deliver taught content to students at all levels of our Ecology and Conservation and Biological Sciences undergraduate programmes. In addition, the successful applicant will teach more broadly across our Ecology and Conservation provision, including our highly successful foundation year. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with a strong background in mammal behaviour.
We will support you to establish a research programme at Brighton which complements and enhances our research profiles. Collaborations with other academics within the University and Centres of Research and Enterprise Excellence (i.e. Centre for Earth Observation Science) are encouraged. Work with industrial, government, charitable and third sector partners is valued and you will be encouraged to develop relationships with relevant external organisations. We have a variety of internal competitively awarded grants to support research and you will be provided with a research mentor to support your growth as a research-active academic.
In completing your application, please pay particular attention to the selection criteria and ensure that you answer these questions fully, referring to the detailed information in your application and/or CV as appropriate.
In return, we offer a generous package with benefits including annual leave starting at 35 days, paid bank holidays, additional paid leave during the Christmas period, travel loans, and pension schemes.
Our School is proud to hold an Athena SWAN Silver award and particularly welcome applications from people from ethnic minority backgrounds.
The post is full-time and is a permanent role. Applications from job-sharers are welcome.
