Post-doctoral fellowship in ecology & conservation, University of Sussex, UK



We have an exciting opportunity for a post-doctoral research fellow to work with Dr Jorn Scharlemann within the newly established Ecology & Conservation Group. We are looking for an analytical thinker with broad interests in biodiversity conservation who enjoys the challenge of working quantitatively at the science-policy interface on issues of global importance for sustainability. This new post will involve collating, compiling and analysing global datasets on terrestrial biodiversity, socio-economic data and conservation actions, to answer questions relating to issues of conservation policy relevance. Experience in the quantitative analysis of complex global datasets using GIS and statistics, and the willingness to work between disciplines will be essential. We are looking for an enthusiastic, ambitious and self-motivated scientist who is able to work independently and as part of the team. 

You must have (or be about to obtain) a relevant PhD or have equivalent research experience. You must also have relevant quantitative research skills and knowledge of biodiversity conservation. 

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Jorn Scharlemann, Reader in Ecology & Conservation,
