Applications are invited for the above permanent, full-time post working in the School of Ocean Sciences, College of Science and Engineering.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop their own programme of scholarship in this area, actively contribute to the School’s interdisciplinary ethos, and utilise the wide range of expertise available throughout the School, College, and wider University. Working locally, regionally, and internationally, the post holder will build links with Welsh and UK-wide industry, coastal communities and governments, and international organisations to inform policy development and sustainable resource management. The successful candidate will develop and maintain a scholarship portfolio, supervise postgraduate research students, and can take advantage of the School’s world-class breadth of research equipment. This includes state-of-the art laboratory facilities, a fleet of small boats, and the RV Prince Madog, a 35m offshore research vessel which distinguishes Bangor amongst UK Universities.
Teaching and administrative duties will include teaching of marine science at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels across a range of modules. The post will involve teaching students about fundamental aspects of marine pollution in the context of the nature crisis and climate change, as well as developing their understanding of nutrient and carbon cycles and contamination from land and infrastructure in the sea.
The successful candidate will be educated to PhD level in Ocean Science or related subject.
This role will be located on campus at Bangor and Menai Bridge. 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.
