Details and application link available here:
We are looking for a candidate who uses applied or theoretical macroecology
approaches to provide insight and understanding into the patterns and
processes shaping species diversity, ecological systems and community
ecology. The successful candidate should have interests in animal study
systems and proven field skills, and will be expected to lead an original
and innovative scientific research programme and contribute to the
development of the discipline areas of ecology and zoology. Classic
ecological questions amenable to study through the techniques of
macroecology, and relevant to this post, include questions of species
richness, latitudinal gradients in species diversity, the species-area
curve, range size, body size, and species abundance. The candidate should
complement and engage with current academic staff and research programmes
within the School and wider UCD community.
