Bern, Switzerland: 2x Postdoc in Biodiversity Sythesis PDF Tisk Email

Two Postdoctoral Researchers (UNIVERSITÄT BERN)
Bewerbungsfrist: 05.03.2015

Biodiversity Synthesis - University of Bern
Applications are invited for two, 3-year, postdoc positions conducting ecological synthesis in the Biodiversity Exploratories (http://www.biodiversity-exploratories.de). One postdoc will be supervised by Prof. Markus Fi-scher and the other by Prof. Eric Allan, both at the University of Bern in Switzerland.

The Biodiversity Exploratories project involves collaboration between over 50 research groups and examines relationships between environmental change (land-use intensification), biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in forests and grasslands. It has generated uniquely comprehensive biodiversity and ecosystem function data-sets, including detailed land-use data, diversity data from a wide range of groups such as bacteria, fungi, arthropods, plants and vertebrates and data on many different ecosystem services. The synthesis project aims to utilise these data for combined analyses and therefore to create synergies between the different research groups, thus providing added value for the whole project.

We are seeking highly motivated applicants interested in the causes and consequences of biodiversity change, community ecology and/or ecosystem service research. As well as conducting synthesis analyses, applicants are expected to interact frequently with members of the Biodiversity Exploratories community and to organise workshops.

Applicants should have a PhD in ecology, or related discipline, and strong analytical skills, including familiarity with advanced statistical techniques and manipulation of large datasets (preferably using R). The positions will be based at the Institute of Plant Sciences in Bern, which offers a stimulating, international research environ-ment and excellent facilities (www.botany.unibe.ch/planteco). Bern is also a beautiful city with a high quality of life.
