Bangor University is seeking to make a number of strategic appointments in the School of Ocean Sciences. We seek a motivated Senior Lecturer/Reader in Fisheries Population Dynamics to join an active and enthusiastic group of marine biologists to undertake research in the area of fisheries biology, and to teach both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The successful candidate will have a strong track record of publications, of attracting research funding, and of academic leadership. They will be expected to identify opportunities for collaborative research, as well as taking a leading role in developing a new MSc in Fisheries, drawing on existing fisheries expertise across the College of Natural Sciences. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and run modules that teach students about, and how to use, modern fisheries modelling approaches.
The School of Ocean Sciences is a multidisciplinary department with a focus on continental shelf sciences and the successful candidate will actively contribute to the School’s interdisciplinary ethos and exploit the wide range of expertise and facilities available in the School and elsewhere within the College of Natural Sciences (of which SOS is a part). Ocean Sciences staff have extensive engagement with U.K. Government fisheries policy departments and other science delivery bodies (CEFAS, Marine Scotland) and an extensive portfolio of existing research grants. Facilities in the School for fisheries ecology are well supported and the School has its own 35 m research vessel (RV Prince Madog) equipped with multibeam, a Simrad EK60 echosounder and 500 m fishing capability (otter trawling and beam trawling and scallop dredging) as well as a new fleet of small vessels for use in estuarine/coastal waters. Experience of active seagoing fisheries research will be an advantage. The School has access to supercomputing facilities through the Welsh Universities consortium. A small amount of start up funds associated with the post will be made available.
The position is a permanent appointment from 1st September 2013 subject to satisfactory probation. Salary will be on the appropriate point according to qualifications and experience.
