Join us in the beautiful north-east of England!

I’m recruiting a postdoc to work on a 5-year research programme funded by the BBSRC (UK’s Biotechnology and Bioscience Research Council). The programme will investigate attention in praying mantises and bumblebees as well as the effect of pesticides on pollinator attention using visual psychophysics and behaviour. I am looking for a postdoc with expertise in insect behavioural experiments and/or visual psychophysics. The position is funded for 5 years with dedicated funding for further training courses and conferences. The position will be based in the lively environment of Newcastle University’s Centre for Behaviour and Evolution and the Institute of Neuroscience. Details about the position and application procedure are here:
