Postdoctoral Research Associate - Environmental Modelling of Species Distributions in Holocene Egypt and the Wider Sahelo-Saharan Region

University of Liverpool - Department of Evolution, Ecology & Behaviour

Location: Liverpool
Salary: £35,327 to £40,928 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 2nd November 2021
Closes: 3rd December 2021
Job Ref: 035887

Applications are invited for an ecological modeller to join the cross-disciplinary project BEAST (‘Biodiversity in Egyptian Archaeology during Societal Transitions’). BEAST is a collaboration between ecologists and archaeologists/Egyptologists aiming to understand interactions between climate, animal populations and society in Holocene Northeast Africa, with a particular focus on predynastic and pharaonic Egypt. You will model the relationship between animal populations in space and time, and changes in the climate and human ecology.

This will form the basis for your contribution to a broader analysis of drivers of extinction risk, societal change and historical events. BEAST is funded by the Leverhulme Trust and brings together the University of Liverpool (where this position is based within the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour), the Leverhulme Centre for Anthropocene Biodiversity at the University of York, and the American University in Cairo.

You should have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in a relevant area and have robust experience related to modelling of species distributions and/or environmental change. Established interest in, and knowledge of historical climates, ecosystems and archaeology is advantageous. You must be able to work independently but also have the flexibility necessary to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. The position is available for 36 months with an expected start date 1 April 2022 (negotiable). Flexible working is possible, subject to logistical constraints.

The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received.
