Applications are invited for a fixed term (24 month) post-doctoral research assistant post in the Department of Geography, Royal Holloway University of London. The postholder will be part of the NERC-funded project “Nature of the Beast? Resolving drivers of prey choice, competition and resilience in wolves”, led by Professor Danielle Schreve (PI, Royal Holloway University of London) and Dr Angela Lamb (Co-I, British Geological Survey, Keyworth).
The project will explore and quantify variation in modern and past wolf diet, in order to assess the impact of forcing factors such as changes in climate, environment, prey community and carnivore competition on feeding behaviour and morphology, and the rates of change at which these occur. This will be the first, most comprehensive and state-of-the-art examination of diet in modern and recent (<250,000 year) European fossil wolf records.
Deadline 30th November 2022, interviews 2nd December 2022 and the role to start in early January or as soon as possible thereafter.
