A 30-month Leverhulme Trust-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to investigate the causes and consequences of variation in helminth parasites in red deer using data from the individually-monitored red deer on the Isle of Rum. The study will include analyses of social networks and environmental variables and has the ultimate aim of understanding whether parasites impact deer density in time and space. The research is led by Prof J.
