Come join us! We’re looking for two postdoctoral positions: one funded by the Leverhulme Trust, starting early November, and the other funded by NERC, starting early January. Both positions are based here at the excellent Life Sciences Building at Bristol, but there will be regular visits to project collaborators at Newcastle University (the Leverhulme project) and┬áMax Planck Department of Collective Behaviour, Konstanz, Germany (the NERC project).

I’m committed to supporting early career researchers; we aim to publish multiple papers per year per project in good journals, and the University provides a wide range of training opportunities as well as a Staff Review program to ensure you’re getting the support you need to achieve your career development goals (e.g. going on to a fellowship or lectureship position after your postdoc with us).

Please note that although experience with fish would be an advantage, it is not essential.

There are more details on the University of Bristol job pages, where you can find the full job description and links to apply, for the Leverhulme and NERC jobs. Happy applying!


Here’s where some of the experimental work will be carried out, on the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad. This is the view from the university campus of the Northen Range Mountains, where guppies live in high and low predation habitats, which attracts researchers from around the world interested in how predation impacts evolution in prey. The fieldwork component of each project is flexible – just get in touch if you have any questions.
