The Humber Estuary is rich in bird life and is a site of international importance for migratory wildfowl and waders. However, it is also a highly dynamic and industrialised landscape, and thus presents a mix of risks, challenges and benefits to the birds that use it. Conversely, the presence of resident and migratory birds along the estuary raises issues for industrial development and, potentially, human and livestock health. We are building a vibrant research community with an explicit focus on bird ecology and behaviour in order to answer pure and applied questions regarding the use of the landscape by birds and interactions with human interests. We require a Postdoctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) to lead our programme of engagement with regional, national and international ornithological stakeholders.
The PDRA will be responsible for delivering a project to investigate how bird migration is evaluated in the UK. In particular, focussing on the following aspects:
- In collaboration with regional, national and international partners to develop and use an automated-telemetry network (Motus) in East Yorkshire and throughout the UK.
- To quantify bird migration in and out of the UK using weather radar and acoustic monitoring.
The work programme will be based in the Department of Biological and Marine Sciences, including fieldwork along the Humber, principally on the Spurn peninsula, and with the potential for work throughout the country and the rest of Europe. The PDRA will be line-managed by the Head of Department.
The Department of Biological and Marine Sciences, University of Hull, has a strong tradition of high quality research and teaching. Our Zoology Programme was ranked 5th for overall student satisfaction in the 2018 NSS, and our research impact was ranked 3rd in England in our REF2014 unit of assessment. Our team teach and research in a wide range of specialist areas, including wildlife conservation and management, insect ecology, behavioural ecology, evolutionary and environmental genomics and marine ecology and conservation. Biologists at Hull have access to a wide range of laboratory and analytical equipment and field sites, including eDNA and genomics facilities, Middledyke conservation area, the University botanic gardens and glasshouses, the Spurn peninsula, Humberhead Peatlands NNR, temperate and tropical aquaria, with excellent technical support, and we have close relations with the nearby ‘The Deep’ aquarium.

The University of Hull consists of four faculties delivering learning, teaching and research across a broad range of areas, admitting students from a variety of backgrounds. The university is committed to ensuring that all students, irrespective of their diverse backgrounds, are able to integrate and participate in all aspects of University life, which enables them to make the most of their own opportunities and choices.
The Student Services Directorate is seeking to appoint four Transition and Retention Tutors to provide high-quality teaching, learning and skills support for foundation year students. The tutors will specifically support the transition, progression and retention of students accessing degree programmes via the foundation year, to ensure that all students have a positive experience at each step in their University career.
The post holders will be based in the Student Services Directorate but will work closely with academic areas and the new Teaching Excellence Academy. Each post holder will work primarily with students from one faculty to support a diverse range of students across the foundation year and particular those students who may be at risk of non-completion. The tutor team will work together closely to share experience and best practice towards enhancing outcomes across foundation year cohorts.
The main focus of the role will be to provide a distinct and highly visible point of contact for foundation year students within their allocated faculty, and to liaise with academic staff and professional support services to ensure that all students feel fully supported. The role will have a broad remit; providing a first point of contact for a range of academic and pastoral issues, answering them when possible, offering support, guidance and acting as a referral service, which includes organising skills-based activities to encourage students to participate fully in University life.
The post holders will contribute towards improving student transition and retention for foundation year students individually and collectively, and increase the likelihood of student success in graduating and gaining employment in their chosen career. As motivated self-starters, the post holders will be capable of working independently and committed to working collaboratively with a broad range of colleagues and stakeholders across the allocated Faculty and wider University. They will be flexible, adapting the academic and pastoral support they offer to the needs of the students in this evolving role, and work with closely with programme directors and the rest of the teaching teams in a supportive, engaging, and collaborative working environment, that is focused entirely on doing the very best for all students.
