Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

Starting salary £33,461 p.a. (including London Weighting)

The Institute of Zoology is a HEFCE funded research institute, affiliated to University College London and is the research and teaching division of the Zoological Society of London, based in two buildings at Regent’s Park.

Applications are invited for up to three postdoctoral research fellowships, each available from 1 February 2012. These are four-year fixed-term appointments for outstanding early career researchers to undertake a programme of independent research within the Institute of Zoology’s current research themes ( Applications are particularly encouraged in the area of conservation genomics but applicants wishing to work on other topics relevant to the Institute's research will also be considered.

The primary criterion for appointment is scientific excellence, although projects with an applied component that links to the conservation work of ZSL will also be encouraged as long they also fulfil the primary criterion. Successful candidates may also occasionally be requested to undertake tasks relating to the wider conservation and educational roles of ZSL, as required.

Candidates must be within 5 years of completing a PhD on the closing date for applications, and should be able to demonstrate their potential to develop a successful independent research programme (with associated funding) in the appropriate field. Applications should include a covering letter (stating preferred research theme within the Institute), curriculum vitae, an outline of the research they would develop over the course of the Fellowship (maximum 1 side of A4, Arial 11 point font), and the names and full contact details of three referees (including the candidate's Ph.D. supervisor). For informal enquiries, contact the senior researcher identified within each specified area on the website, or the Director of the Institute of Zoology ( ).

Applications should be sent to or by post to the Human Resources Department, ZSL, Regent’s Park, London, NW1 4RY.

Closing date: Sunday 20th November 2011
