The University has outlined its commitment to five Interdisciplinary Challenge Areas that address the biggest challenges of our time:

  • Energy Transition
  • Environment and Biodiversity
  • Health, Nutrition and Wellbeing
  • Social Inclusion and Cultural Diversity
  • Data and Artificial Intelligence

Our vision is to place interdisciplinarity at the heart of the University to create innovative and sustainable solutions to the key global challenges facing society, to provide a focus for interdisciplinary research and to enhance student learning through the integration of approaches and collaboration across multiple branches of knowledge. In fulfilling this vision, we will contribute to transformations locally, nationally and globally to enhance human society and the planet.

We are now recruiting twenty 5-year fellowships aligned to our new Interdisciplinary Challenge areas.

The University has been credited for its international reach, influence on national policy and its commercialisation of research ideas into spin out companies. In recognition of our world -leading and life changing research, we were awarded The Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2018 and 2021.

Join our excellent research community.

Research Fellow, Biological Sciences

An enthusiastic, motivated, and creative postdoctoral fellow is sought to join a collaborative team within the School of Biological Sciences to develop new ways of harnessing population genetic data to predict biodiversity responses to shifting climates. Evidence is accumulating that spatially-explicit genetic data from landscape genetic studies may be instrumental in predicting, tracking, and managing biodiversity responses. Nonetheless, evidence accumulated to date remains idiosyncratic and poorly synthesized, thus we still lack a unified understanding of the link between genetic variation across space and biodiversity responses in time. This project aims to integrate existing landscape genetic and epigenetic data, both within our single core study system and model system of range shift genetics (the blue-railed damselfly, Ischnura elegans), and across multiple species in a comparative context, to improve our understanding of biodiversity responses.
