The University invites applications for a Lectureship in Animal Production
Science. Particular preference will be given to applicants with an interest
in dairy production science since the successful candidate will be required
to teach dairy production.
The person appointed will join a strong team of animal scientists led by
Prof. Will Haresign, responsible for teaching all aspects of animal science
which underpin the agriculture, animal science and equine science courses.
Collectively, these courses are responsible for around 60% of the student
intake, and some are offered at both degree and HND levels.
The Institute places considerable emphasis on research, and the person
appointed will be expected to make a significant contribution to the further
development of its research profile. Existing areas of research strength
within the Animal Sciences group include (a) animal reproduction, (b) animal
breeding and genetics, (c) animal nutrition and (d) organic systems of
livestock production, all with a particular focus on ruminants. There would,
however, be scope to develop new areas of research, subject to attracting
external funding to support it.
The recent creation of the Aberystwyth Biosciences Centre, a virtual
institute linking the Welsh Institute of Rural Studies and the Institute of
Biological Sciences within the University with the Institute of Grassland
and Environmental Research, provides considerable opportunity for the
development of collaborative research utilising the full range of facilities
and expertise available within the Centre. Considerable links also exist
with ADAS and other organisations, especially in the area of organic
livestock production research.
The salary scale for Lecturers is £16,655 to £29,048 per annum. It is hoped
that the successful applicant will take up appointment on 1 September 1999.
Application forms, returnable by 30th July 1999, may be obtained by
