Bournemouth University's vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

The Department of Life and Environmental Sciences is leading the project ‘Resolving the extinction crisis: sustainable and technological solutions for biodiversity and society', which also involves other researchers across BU and external partners. Within the project, we are seeking to appoint to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and motivated Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (PDRF) in animal biotelemetry, who will work alongside three other PDRF positions that cover a range of other technical disciplines.

You will have well developed competencies in biotelemetry methods applied to animals (ideally fish/ birds). You will have experience of applying biotelemetry methods in the wild, with expertise in implanting tags into animals, obtaining data on their subsequent movements, and analyzing these data using appropriate methods to a standard appropriate for publication.

Applications with expertise in some of the following methods are expected: passive integrated transponder (PIT) telemetry, radio telemetry and acoustic telemetry. These methods will have been applied to a number of different animal species. The ability to apply these methods to answering questions on how the movements and migrations of animals alter according to environmental change is essential.

For further and informal discussions, please contact the Principal Investigator of the project, Professor Robert Britton, at the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences,

This position is available on a fixed-term basis until 1 February 2026.

BU values and is committed to an inclusive working environment. We seek a diverse community through attracting, developing and retaining staff from different backgrounds to contribute to inspirational learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society. To support and enable our staff to achieve a balance between work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
