Profile

Description:

The School of Biological and Marine Sciences, at the University of Plymouth, invites applications for a number of Doctoral Teaching Assistantship positions. The School is advertising for three Doctoral Teaching Assistantships (DTAs) to join its postgraduate research community of over 70 researchers who work across a variety of disciplines recognised as world-leading in Biological Sciences, Marine Biology and Marine Sciences. The School is comprised of over 70 academics, 40 technical staff and around 1,200 students. Facilities include a £4.65 million Marine Station with several research boats and diving facilities, alongside newly refurbished, state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities. It is anticipated that these positions will be spread across the three main areas of the school (Biological Sciences, Marine Biology, Marine Science). Both teaching and PhD activities will be undertaken concurrently. The positions will consist of (i) a part time (0.5 FTE - actual salary £15,703 per annum) teaching contract at Grade 6; and (ii) a part-time PhD (0.5 FTE) offered for a 5 year period (covering 4 years of doctoral study plus 1 year writing up). In addition to the PhD Fee Scholarship, you will be trained to undertake teaching within a relevant subject area alongside our Undergraduate Programme teams as well as participating in our research activities. You will not be expected to teach more than the hours indicated as part of the fractional post you are applying for (factoring for 8 weeks holiday entitlement). This will be paid at Grade 6 on the University's pay spine. Research training will be supported through the University's Doctoral College, and the Researcher development programme, and you may be required to attend a 'research skills' module. You will pursue a PhD degree supported by world class research teams and gain professional teaching experience within one or more of the areas indicated above. You are required to have a good honours degree (1st Class or an Upper 2:1) and possibly a Masters degree in a relevant subject, and a strong wish to pursue one of the advertised PhD projects. You will likely also be interested in a career in the Higher Education Sector, specifically in teaching and research, and thus need to possess excellent communication and team working skills. Potential DTA PhD projects: Is climate change increasing vulnerability of alpine plants to herbivores? Lead supervisor: Dr James Buckley - james.buckley@plymouth.ac.uk Investigating polar and temperate benthic colonisation in space and time Lead supervisor: Dr Keiron Fraser - keiron.fraser@plymouth.ac.uk Larval dispersal modelling as a tool to support sustainable management of the deep sea Lead supervisor: Prof Kerry Howell - kerry.howell@plymouth.ac.uk Reconfiguring seascapes in the Anthropocene: Assessing how connectivity pathways maintain biodiversity Lead supervisor: Dr Antony Knights - antony.knights@plymouth.ac.uk Impact of sea-level rise on atoll islands Lead supervisor: Prof Gerd Masselink - gerd.masselink@plymouth.ac.uk Do complex signals help structure intertidal communities?

Lead Supervisor: Dr Jennifer Rowntree – jennifer.rowntree@plymouth.ac.uk Please demonstrate how you meet the essential criteria outlined in the knowledge, qualifications, training and experience elements of the job description in your supporting statement. You must select one of the 6 PhD projects listed abpve and explain in your application why this topic is of interest, and what you feel you can bring to the project.
