Job Opportunity: Research Associate in Mathematical Ecology:

Job description:

Job location: Glasgow
income: £39,347 to £44,263
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract

This post is full time and has funding for up to 2 years.
The School of Mathematics & Statistics is looking to recruit a Research Associate to develop a mathematical framework able to model the population dynamics of migratory wildebeest in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania in relation to increased human activity and environmental disturbance
The prosperous applicant will make a leading contribution to the NERC funded project titled ?Revealing the hidden effects of anthropogenic disturbance on the spatiotemporal dynamics of animal populations?, working with Prof. Colin Torney, Prof. Grant Hopcraft, and Prof. Juan Morales at the University of Glasgow. The aim of this project is to relate empirical individual-located movement, activity, and physiology data to population responses, particularly to meet the challenges in evaluating scenarios of different climate, management, or intervention strategies. The post holder will employ a combination of mathematical modelling and data analysis techniques in order to evaluate future and current population-level response to environmental change. We are seeking for someone with skills in one or several of the following; integral projection models, movement ecology, population ecology, machine learning, or animal-borne telemetry.
The prosperous candidate will also be expected to lead in the formulation and submission of research publications and to contribute to the development of future research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.
Informal enquiries about the function are welcomed, and should be addressed to Prof. Colin Torney ( in the first instance.
