Job Description


To promote a flexible workforce, the University will consider applications from individuals seeking full time, part time, job share, or term time only working arrangements.


We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to join an energetic and enthusiastic team of investigators working on a project entitled ‘Climate change adaptation through ecologically sensitive coastal infrastructure (Ecostructure)’. Ecostructure is an interdisciplinary project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 which aims to raise awareness of eco-engineering solutions to the challenge of coastal adaptation to climate change by providing developers and regulators with accessible tools and resources.


The successful applicant will investigate the Impact of artificial structures on dispersal and gene flow of native and non-native species inhabiting the Irish Sea coasts of Ireland and Wales. Additionally, they will be expected to communicate their results to stakeholders in industry, government and coastal communities. We aim to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated individual whose laboratory and field skills are complemented by good communication and reporting skills.
