Oxford Brookes University is hiring a full-time postdoctoral fellow for two years, with the possibility to extend for a third year. The role will work part-time in Oxford, and part-time in Java Indonesia.

The fellow will examine the impact of wildlife-friendly crop production on the diversity of insect and mammal pollinators and seed dispersers, including the Critically Endangered Javan slow loris.

Java is one of of the most heavily populated islands on earth. Understanding the impact of farming practices on wildlife and sustainability of crops is essential to food and financial security. The fellow will be involved in ecological monitoring and radio telemetry studies of nocturnal mammals. They will also help to facilitate the branding of Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network products in Java for international export.

This project forms part of the long-term research of Professor Anna Nekaris, and is funded by the Global Challenges Fund Initiative.

The closing date is August 10, 2018.
