The Institute of Science and Environment is one of five Institutes within the University.  It has strong links with a number of professional bodies and employers which is reflected in the high level of employment our students enjoy.

The Institute operates from two campuses, Ambleside and Carlisle, to suit the academic portfolio and delivery needs of the programmes. The academic portfolio provides a range of undergraduate programmes including Outdoor Leadership, Outdoor Education, Geography, Forestry and a range of Conservation programmes at our Ambleside Campus and Biomedical Science, Forensic Science, Environmental Science and Zoology at our Carlisle Campus. Additionally, we have a developing postgraduate taught provision and a growing postgraduate research community.

We are seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Zoology. You will join a successful, experienced and ambitious academic team with a reputation for innovation in course design, delivery and growing international reputation for research and knowledge exchange.  Situated at our Carlisle campus, the zoology programme is ideally positioned with mixed woodland, grassland and riverine habitats just a short walk from the campus, offering amazing outdoor teaching opportunities. We have a strong focus on practical and applied zoology as well as natural history and would welcome a team member who shares our passion for teaching research-informed knowledge and skills, in the classroom and within the unique Cumbrian landscape and beyond.

The successful candidate will ideally have (or be working towards) a PhD in Zoology or related subject, be able to demonstrate experience relevant to teaching at HE level and a strong interest in developing both their research/knowledge exchange and teaching profile. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with experience in animal behaviour and anatomy.

You will be required to contribute to the delivery of core zoology modules across Programmes and year groups. You will also be expected to actively engage with research and scholarship to support your teaching and extend, transform and apply knowledge to the development of Zoology and our wider portfolio.

As well as the requisite academic and technical skills, we are seeking candidates who can work as part of a team demonstrating skills in project and time management and a passion for teaching and learning. We are seeking an innovative, creative academic who can foster a culture of exploration, discovery and intellectual challenge that generates international recognition, and motivates student engagement.
