PhD student position at Uppsala University - evolutionary traits in trophic interactions


Department of Ecology and Genetics, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala
University.

This PhD position is aimed at improving our understanding of the spatial
aspects of food web interactions in aquatic ecosystems. Top predators have
the ability as mobile consumers to integrate spatially separated food webs
and movement across habitats of these predators is key to understand how
spatially separated food webs can be coupled. The student will test the
importance of ecological factors and evolutionary traits constraining
movements and foraging abilities of predators. We use mainly Eurasian perch
(Perca fluviatilis) as our model species and the student will conduct a
mixture of small scale aquarium studies, mesocosm experiments and field
studies.

The candidate will receive her/his postgraduate training within
the postgraduate school at the Evolutionary Biology Centre
(http://www.ebc.uu.se/?languageId=1).  The school offers a creative
and stimulating environment and is very rich in seminars, courses
and possibilities to interact with other scholars and students
(http://www.ebc.uu.se/education/?languageId=1).

You are welcome to submit your application no later than August 1, 2012,
