14 March 2012The Schools of Earth and Biological Sciences wish to recruit an exceptional individual with internationally recognised expertise in the broad field of macroevolution. We interpret this liberally to include candidates whose specialisms encompass the development of the statistical phylogenetic methods to solve evolutionary problems, or their application in large-scale phylogenetics, lineage diversification, or phylogenomics, as well as candidates in the field of evolutionary developmental biology. The schools have existing expertise in macroevolutionary research, as well as animal and plant biology. We would be particular interested in candidates with expertise in plant macroevolution, although we welcome applications from researchers interested in organismal evolution across the breadth of the Tree of Life and extent of Earth History.
Closing date is 9.00 a.m. 30th March 2012
