Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Macroevolution (vacancy ref. 16988)


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.
