Manchester Metropolitan University - School of Science and the Environment

One of the largest research-led science and technology educators in the UK, our Faculty of Science and Engineering offers a world-class teaching environment, covering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. With genuine trailblazing specialisms and global impact, our exceptional research has created an international reputation for making a transformative contribution to the world around us. We deliver work with real-world impact, and cultivate lasting relationships with businesses, the government and the general public to share our innovation and expertise.

This post is based in the Division of Biology and Conservation Ecology, within the School of Science and the Environment and will complement and build upon our existing animal physiology and behaviour research profile.

The School is one of the largest in the University attracting large numbers of students (>1600 enrolments for 2017/18) on many undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The Division of Biology and Conservation Ecology is responsible for teaching a wide range of subjects at undergraduate level, including general Biology, Zoology and Animal Behaviour. In addition to our suite of Bachelor programmes the Division also runs a long-established and very successful suite of Masters programmes in Conservation Biology, Zoo Conservation Biology, Animal Behaviour and Biological Recording.

The Division of Biology & Conservation Ecology is seeking to appoint a full-time Lecturer in Animal Physiology and Behaviour with demonstrated research experience. You will be expected to contribute to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including BSc Biology, BSc Wildlife Biology, BSc Animal Behaviour, BSc Zoology, MSc Animal Behaviour and MSc Zoo Conservation Biology, and develop an independent programme of high quality research. Applications are welcome from candidates with experience in animal physiology with strong links to animal behaviour and welfare, such as in neural or endocrine systems.

Our facilities are spacious, modern and well equipped, having benefited from significant and on-going investment over recent years. You will join a dynamic team teaching on a range of biology, zoology and animal behaviour based units at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You will supervise students in undergraduate and postgraduate level research projects. You will also contribute, where appropriate, to commercial/research income generation activity, and will undertake research/scholarly activity and contribute to the development of new areas in your relevant subject field.
