Dear Coral-Listers,

I am looking for a postdoctoral fellow in marine conservation science for a Sept start – please forward to any potential candidates!

Thanks, Maria


Are you an ambitious scientist looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in conservation science? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?

The University of Leeds is a vibrant, multidisciplinary institution with extensive teaching and research programmes in ecology, evolution, biomedical sciences, climate and conservation.

The School of Biology seeks to recruit an outstanding, highly quantitative Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Fellow. The person will apply quantitative ecological models to advance conservation science with concepts and methods from functional ecology, with a particular focus on the effects of changing exposure along environmental and human use gradients, focussing on coral reef habitats in the Pacific and at high latitudes.

The position also has a teaching component, the fellow will assist with teaching conservation science to undergraduates (Advanced Topics in Conservation Science module), supervise undergraduate and masters-level student projects, and teach tutorial modules. This role contributes to the “Conserving marine biodiversity under climate change” family of projects; and through participation in the School’s academic activities you will also contribute towards learning and academic pursuit within the School of Biology, specifically the Ecology and Evolution group.

You should possess a PhD in the area of conservation science, ecological modelling, big data manipulation, or a closely related discipline, and have an excellent publication record. You should be familiar with conservation tools and literature.
