Responsible toHead of the School of Ocean Sciences
Bangor University has recently made a number of strategic appointments in the School of Ocean Sciences. We further seek to strengthen our marine biology lecturing and research expertise through the appointment of a quantitative Marine Biologist. The successful candidate will join a dynamic and active research department and will undertake research in an area of population dynamics or multispecies interactions, and teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Candidates should have an excellent publication record and some evidence of grant capture ideally with an emphasis on quantitative approaches and/or modelling of marine populations. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with research interests in the following research fields:
• Population processes in marine vertebrates (fish, seabirds, marine reptiles and mammals)
• Population processes in commercially important vertebrate and invertebrate taxa
• Multispecies interactions and/or theoretical approaches relevant to marine populations.
In addition to developing a vigorous programme of research, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of new teaching modules at the MSc level on population assessment and modelling approaches in marine environmental and fisheries science. Experience of seagoing research will be an advantage.
The School of Ocean Sciences is a multidisciplinary department with a focus on coastal and shelf sciences and the successful candidate will actively contribute to the School’s interdisciplinary ethos and exploit the wide range of expertise and facilities available in the School and elsewhere within the College of Natural Sciences (of which SOS is a part). Ocean Science staff have extensive engagement with UK Government fisheries policy departments and other science delivery bodies (eg. DEFRA, CEFAS, Marine Scotland Welsh Assembly Government) and a strong portfolio of existing research grants (eg NERC, EU). The School has its own 35 m research vessel (RV Prince Madog) equipped with a Simrad EK60 echosounder and 500 m fishing capability (otter and beam trawling and scallop dredging), a multibeam seabed mapping system, high observation platform for seabird and mammal surveys, as well as a fleet of small vessels for use in estuarine/coastal waters. The School has access to supercomputing facilities through the Welsh Universities consortium. Some start up funds associated with the post will be made available.
The position is a permanent appointment from 1st October 2014 and is subject to satisfactory probation.
Salary will be on the appropriate grade according to qualifications and experience.
Closing date for applications: Friday, 04 July 2014. Interviews will be scheduled for August.
