We are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to join Prof Mariani’s team (www.marianilab.org) based at the LJMU School of Biological & Environmental Sciences to be a key driver in a new three-year project.
The research aims to embed whole-community environmental DNA analysis into traditional knowledge, to understand a tapestry of spatial and temporal biodiversity features and provide a set of novel, comprehensive marine conservation tools. Whilst grounded in the latest molecular ecology approaches, the project is transdisciplinary in nature and will benefit from interactions with government agencies, NGOs, and the indigenous communities.
You will be involved in sampling activities along the Central California coast and will lead eDNA analyses with a focus on fish and other vertebrates. You will also be responsible for bioinformatic analyses, manuscript writing, and be prepared to engage in a suite of outreach and science communication initiatives.
Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Stefano Mariani: email@example.com
