Research Fellow, Biological Sciences

We are conducting a project that is exploring effective rodent management strategies in rural Tanzania and Madagascar. One of the key knowledge gaps the project is addressing is how rodent movements change after localised control. The Research Fellow will use population genetic approaches to understand movement of black rats in our study populations before and after our management experiment. The Research Fellow will be responsible for running established microsatellite genotyping protocols on samples. The Fellow will oversee analyses of the data to check quality and explore spatial structure of populations before and after control. The post will collaborate directly with partner institutes and participate in knowledge exchange activities. The post will be held in the School of Biological Science. Research within the School of Biological Sciences has a broad cross-cutting theme of understanding the fundamental biological consequences of environmental change. The candidate will have excellent experience of microsatellite genotyping.
