About Anglia Ruskin University:
Anglia Ruskin is a vibrant workplace and our University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally. We have ambitious plans for the future and we are determined that our students and staff will realise their full potential. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investment. With an annual turnover of over £200m, we are a major force for higher education and one of the largest universities in the East of England.
About the role:
You’ll join our Department of Life Sciences, based in our Faculty of Science and Technology. We’re a forward-looking and enthusiastic department with a vision that combines commitment to a strong and active research culture with excellence in learning and teaching. The department has two course areas, Animal and Environmental Biology and Sport and Exercise Sciences, and you’ll be part of the Animal and Environmental Biology team.
You’ll contribute to teaching and administration in our courses, which cover areas of animal behaviour, biodiversity, conservation, marine biology and zoology. You’ll also contribute to our research culture, working with colleagues in the Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). The AERG had 22 staff submitted for the recent REF exercise, and the majority of our papers were judged as internationally excellent or world leading.
With a PhD or Professional Doctorate (or nearing completion) in a related discipline, you’ll also have teaching experience in Higher Education. You’ll be committed to research and prepared to work as part of multi-disciplinary teams as well as developing your personal research activities.
We welcome applications from candidates who can contribute particularly to teaching in the area of animal behaviour but who are able to assist with other subjects within the area of zoology, such as general physiology or parasitology. The successful candidates will contribute to teaching at all levels (Level 3 to Level 7). Your research will complement and support our departmental research strategy and contribute to the next REF.
For informal enquiries please contact Dr Alvin Helden, Deputy Head of Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that interviews are expected to take place 1 March 2017.
