The Leverhulme Centre for Anthropocene Biodiversity is home to world-leading interdisciplinary research on the complexities of biodiversity change in the Anthropocene.

The team is wide ranging and continuously growing, bringing in expertise and insights from across different disciplines and subject areas to advance research in the most exciting emerging fields.

To bring this Centre to life, we will recruit a number of roles - both academic and professional support.

We are pleased to welcome Jack Hatfield and Caroline Ward to the Centre as Postdoctoral Research Associates. 
Jack will work on projects analysing biodiversity, socio-economic and cultural information at multiple temporal & spatial scales; Caroline will investigate relationships between socioeconomic inequality and the environment.
