About the role:
The School of Life Sciences operates within the Faculty of Science and Engineering, on the Cambridge Campus. It is a dynamic, successful and rapidly growing academic school. The School of Life Sciences encompasses teaching and research in Biology, Biomedical Science and Crime and Forensic Investigative studies. All our BSc and MSc courses are accredited by professional bodies including the Royal Society of Biology (RSB), the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), and the Chartered Society of Forensic Science.
The biology subject area offers undergraduate courses in Animal Behaviour, Marine & Terrestrial Conservation, and Zoology. There are currently two taught masters courses: Animal Behaviour - Applications for Conservation; and Applied Wildlife Conservation. The biology subject area contains two research groups: the Behavioural Ecology Research Group; and the Applied Ecology Research Group. Together the research groups had 14 staff submitted for REF 2021 alongside staff from the University’s Global Sustainability Institute (GSI). Areas of overlapping research with the GSI identified within our REF Environment Statement explore the human, practical and policy impacts of conservation and ecology practices. In REF 2014 54% of our papers were judged as internationally excellent or world leading. This post will include teaching on our undergraduate and/or masters courses within the biology subject area. You will also be expected to contribute to the supervision of research students and to the School Research Strategy.
We are seeking a motivated academic who has the commitment and ability to make a full and active contribution to our teaching and administration within the School. You’ll contribute to teaching and administration in our courses, which cover areas of animal behaviour, biodiversity, conservation, marine biology and zoology.
With a PhD or professional doctorate (or nearing completion for grade 5 appointments) 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. You’ll possess excellent communications skills and will demonstrate a flexible approach to work.
