We are looking for a bright and resourceful ecologist to join a team working on pollinators in urban environments. The 3 year post is funded by the Insect Pollinators Initiative (http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/pollinators), as part of a project addressing the following inter-related questions:
• How rich are urban pollinator communities relative to rural habitats such as farmland or nature reserves?
• Where are the hot-spots of pollinator biodiversity in cities?
• What can we do to improve urban pollinator diversity and abundance?
The work will combine extensive field surveying of wild pollinators in and around three Yorkshire cities with laboratory work identifying sampled insects, and will involve extensive interactions with project partners across Britain, with regional conservationists and with the general public. You would also have the opportunity to collaborate with other members of a large, active research group working on a range of related issues.
