Applications are invited for the above full time 24-month fixed-term postdoctoral research position to support the research work being undertaken by Prof Davey Jones in Environment Centre Wales in the fields of soil-plant-microbial science, nutrient cycling and sustainable agricultural practice, extreme events and greenhouse gas emissions. We are seeking a postdoctoral level candidate to help undertake laboratory and field experiments that support ongoing projects (e.g. plastic pollution in the terrestrial biosphere, nitrogen use efficiency in agriculture, soil carbon cycling, rhizosphere biology, sensors). It is expected that the post will generate a wide range of high quality journal papers. It is expected that the post will aid in the supervision of PhD students working in the group to help them achieve their maximum potential. This post would therefore suit a candidate who would like to build their mentoring skills whilst also being given freedom to undertake high impact research in areas mutually agreed by the candidate and the team. The post is ideally suited to someone who is looking to build towards a future fellowship application.

We are looking for a candidate with proven expertise in a related research field (e.g. soil and crop science, environmental pollution, plastics, agronomy, microbiology) and an excellent track record in publishing high quality journal papers. The position will work closely with the wider research team in Environment Centre Wales. The applications will be evaluated based via their fulfilment of the essential and desirable criteria described in the person specification. The post is based in the School of Natural Sciences at Bangor University.

Candidates should be educated to a PhD (or be near completion) in Environmental Science, Soil Science, Plant Science, Agronomy, Microbiology, Agricultural Science, Crop Science, and/or a related field or be close to the completion of or possess equivalent experience relevant to the role or a related subject or have experience of undertaking and delivering a research project.

The successful candidate will be expected to commence as soon as possible.

This role will be located on campus at Bangor. Through our Dynamic Working framework, there will also be the option to spend some time working remotely (although remaining in the UK) to support work life balance, which will be discussed further with candidates at interview.

Applications will also be considered to carry out this role on a part-time or job share basis.

Applications will only be accepted via our on-line recruitment website, jobs.bangor.ac.uk. However, in cases of access issues due to disability, paper application forms are available by telephoning 01248 383865.
