Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Macroevolution

14 March 2012

The Schools of Earth and Biological Sciences wish to recruit an exceptional individual with internationally recognised expertise in the broad field of macroevolution.

The 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.

You will have an international reputation for research and a track record in research income and publication to support this. You will be expected to be or become a research leader, bringing or building your own research group and developing new research avenues with colleagues in both schools and the university at large.

The position forms part of a wider investment in the biological sciences at Bristol, and benefits from location in the new Life Sciences Building, a £50M development to be completed in late 2013.
