Doctorado en Finlandia estudiando las comunidades de plancton


Oferta compartida por Daniel Fernández en el Biogrupo

The Lammi Biological Station at the University of Helsinki is excited to announce an opening for a PhD researcher to join the newly formed group of Dr. Caio Graco-Roza.

Research Description:

The group focuses on studying planktonic communities and their responses to natural and anthropogenic factors both in the Lammi area but also worldwide. Planktonic communities are fundamental to the food chain, encompassing multiple taxa crucial for water quality management and ecosystem services. Their short lifespan and high demographic rates make them powerful ecological indicators.

The current project aims to understand the primary sources of diffuse pollution in the intensively monitored pilot catchment and the impact of diffuse pollution to plankton biodiversity. Collaborating with members of the “Watershed Safety Plan”-Project (WSSP), the successful applicant will contribute to developing catchment-level water protection solutions at the Baltic level.

The project employs both observational and experimental data collection methods. Observational data, gathered through source-track campaigns across the entire catchment, will inform a hydrological model for the pilot catchment. Given the area's predominant agricultural activities, the candidate will design experiments to assess the effects of various agricultural practices on aquatic biodiversity, particularly within the planktonic food web. The project uniquely integrates hydrological catchment models with experimental approaches to anticipate the large-scale impacts of anthropogenic activities on biodiversity. All necessary infrastructure and materials for experimentation are provided.


About You:


  • Ambitious, goal-oriented, collegial, and motivated to tackle challenging projects.
  • Hold or be near completion of an MSc degree in biology, ecology, geography, or a related field.
  • Prior experience in field sampling, with knowledge of water quality sampling considered advantageous.
  • Proficiency in statistical analytical tools such as R, Python, SPSS, or SigmaPlot.
  • Strong interest in experimental studies.
  • Good command of English. Finnish profficiency is considered an asset.
  • Strong communication, interpersonal, organizational, and time management skills.


Project Description:


The doctoral researcher will be the local coordinator of International Central Baltic Interreg-funded “Watershed Safety Plan”-Project (WSSP) focusing on developing catchment-level water protection solutions. In addition to thesis work, the PhD candidate will be responsible for the progress of the project locally. Project tasks include processing and analyzing long-term catchment data, contributing to the validation, development, and testing of hydrological catchment loading models. Data from experiments will facilitate extrapolation of results to identify areas in the catchment vulnerable to biodiversity loss.


Project Assignments:


  • Local tasks related to project coordination, management and communication.
  • Partner-level reporting of project activities and the financial implementation to the funder (To be done twice a year)
  • Compilation of data from the pilot catchment area for use by project partners in modeling implementation.
  • Implementation of load-reducing water protection solutions, such as landing basin restoration.
  • Participating to international project events and meetings
  • Depending on suitability, involvement in Pääjärvi load survey-related research, potentially extending employment by 1-2 months.


What We Offer:


  • Project funding for approximately 22 months (2.9.2024 - 30.6.2026) with a competitive monthly salary ranging from 2560€ to 3,390€.
  • Scientific support from research staff and administrative assistance from the station.
  • A dynamic international workplace.
  • Affordable accommodation options within the Lammi Biological Station.
  • Negotiable remote work arrangements during specific periods.

2 ofertas de postdoctorados trabajando con fauna y flora del Amazonas


Oferta compartida por Daniel Fernández en el Biogrupo  

1) 2-yr postdoc on Making biodiversity inventories more efficient

The Department of Biology, Aarhus University invites applications for a fulltime 2-year postdoc position on:  Making biodiversity inventories more efficient. This postdoc project is part of a larger project funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The overall aim is to understand how tropical plant diversity originated and how it is distributed at present.

The focus is especially on Amazonian rainforests, which house a large part of the Earth's biodiversity but are facing severe threats from climate change and human impact. We urgently need knowledge on biogeographical and ecological ranges of species, and these in turn need many observations of species occurrences from the field. However, such data are very laborious to produce, because traditional field inventories are slow, they require species identification skills that few people have, and the area that needs to be covered is very large.

These problems may be alleviated by approaching field inventories and species identification in new ways that allow non-specialists to contribute to the collection of species occurrence data. One such possibility is to use spectral leaf characteristics to facilitate species identification. The present project aims to test to what degree this approach can facilitate identification of Amazonian understory plants, especially ferns, and to combine it with already existing large datasets to enhance biodiversity mapping in Amazonia.

Starting date and period 

The position is for two years and is available from August 1st, 2024, or soon thereafter.

Job description 

The project aims to enhance ways of making biodiversity inventories more rapid and less dependent on the species identification skills of individual researchers. The focus will be on collecting and analyzing spectral traits on Amazonian understory plants, especially ferns, and to make the results available to the broader public in species identification tools. To test the approach, both already existing material and new material to be collected during coming field trips can be used. The postdoc is expected to contribute ideas and concepts to the project and actively collaborate with other team members, including students and researchers based at other institutions. Participation in field work is encouraged. The postdoc is expected to lead at least two high-quality papers in this research area and contribute to public outreach and teaching.

Your profile 

Applicants must have a PhD degree or equivalent in a relevant field (e.g., ecology, biology, botany) or have submitted their PhD thesis for assessment before the application deadline. The broader project is mostly focusing on ferns as indicators of general floristic variation (with some attention to other plants such as palms), so experience with identifying plants is an advantage. The successful candidate is expected to have good collaborative skills, proven ability to publish at a high international level, and excellent command of the English language. Knowledge of Portuguese or Spanish is an advantage but is not required.

Application materials 

Include a motivation letter (1 page, specify your qualifications for carrying out the planned research), a preliminary research plan (max. 3 pages, outline how you might focus your work to address the research questions mentioned above), CV (including number of citations and H-index from Google Scholar and full list of publications), and educational documentation (copies of diplomas for Master and PhD degrees). Diplomas can be in English or Danish, other materials must be in English.

Supervisor and collaborators 

The work will be supervised by Professor Hanna Tuomisto (Aarhus University) and Dr. Flávia Durgante (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology). The postdoc will be integrated in and collaborating with others at the Section for Ecoinformatics & Biodiversity (ECOINF) in the Department of Biology, Aarhus University. There will also be collaboration with several research institutes abroad, notably University of Turku in Finland, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and several institutes in South America.

What we offer 

The successful candidate is offered:
  • an ambitious, creative, and friendly research environment, inviting lively, open and critical discussion within and across different fields of research
  • a working environment with teamwork, close working relations, network activities among young scientists and social activities
  • a workplace characterized by professionalism, equality, and a healthy work-life balance
  • access to a well-developed research infrastructure 
  • office space, shared equipment

Place of work 

The place of employment and work is the Section for Ecoinformatics & Biodiversity (ECOINF), Department of Biology, Aarhus University, Ny Munkegade 116, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark.

Oferta de doctorado en Noruega estudiando aves


 Oferta compartida por: Malena

PhD Research Fellow in terrestrial ecology.

There is a vacancy for a PhD Research Fellow position in terrestrial ecology at the Department of Biological Sciences (BIO), University of Bergen. The position is for a fixed-term period of 3 years with the possibility of a 4 th year with compulsory other work (e.g. teaching duties at the Department) and is associated with the Ecological and Environmental Change research group. The position is funded by the University of Bergen.

About the project/work tasks:

In current attempts to understand how environmental change affects ecosystems, the focus is often on species abundances and distributions (range limits), while species interaction data remain sporadic. Meanwhile, recent long-term studies show that the strength of interactions may also be changing within species ranges regardless of predicted range shifts. It is important to establish the extent of such “invisible” change within ecosystems, because ultimately the functioning and stability of a species (or network of species) depends on the strengths of its interactions more than on its presence or absence.

The focus here is on terrestrial ecosystems and particularly temperate forests. The candidate will use hole-nesting birds and their trophic interactions along an urbanisation gradient to study the combined effects of habitat degradation and climatic factors on species interactions. The candidate is expected to develop their research empirically through the monitoring of hole-nesting birds in local nestbox populations and the use of data collected in the past decade. Some of these questions may also be addressed at a broader scale through international collaborations.

The candidate will be based at the University of Bergen, with the possibility of short stays abroad for the purposes of collaboration.

Qualifications and personal qualities:

  • Applicants must hold a master's degree or equivalent education in Ecology and Evolution or must have submitted their master's thesis for assessment prior to the application deadline. It is a condition of employment that the master's degree has been awarded.
  • Experience with handling and measuring small passerine birds is a requirement.
  • Good statistical skills and familiarity with R programming is required.
  • Experience with the monitoring of breeding birds in nestbox populations throughout at least one entire breeding season is a clear advantage.
  • A documented interest for fieldwork involving wild birds in Scandinavian weather is a clear advantage.
  • Familiarity with spatial data analysis in R (GIS) is also an advantage.
  • Applicants must be able to work independently and in a structured manner and demonstrate good collaborative skills.
  • Applicants must be proficient in both written and oral English.

Personal and relational qualities will be emphasized. Ambitions and potential will also count when evaluating the candidates.

Special requirements for the position

The University of Bergen is subjected to the regulation for export control system. The regulation will be applied in the processing of the applications.

We can offer:

  • A good and professionally stimulating working environment.
  • Salary as PhD research fellow (code 1017) in the state salary scale. This constitutes a gross annual salary of NOK 532 200 (equivalent to pay grade 54). Further increases in salary are made according to length of service in the position. 
  • Enrolment in the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.
  • Good welfare benefits.
