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.

The Environment Portfolio at The Pew Charitable Trusts  

For more than 30 years, Pew has been a major force in engaging the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work spans all seven continents with more than 250 professionals working at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large natural ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity, and the destruction of the marine environment. Pew’s global environmental program focuses on science-based, nonpartisan, and sustainable solutions to help protect the planet and people. We work in partnership with governments, Indigenous rights holders, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, local stakeholders, scientists, and other researchers to advance public policy so that nature and communities can thrive.

Since 1990, Pew has worked in North America, South America and Australia to protect large and critically important terrestrial ecosystems, including rivers and other freshwater resources, coastal temperate rainforests, interior mountain ranges, the northern boreal forests, Australia’s Outback, and Chilean Patagonia. We work to ensure these natural systems remain bountiful, functioning, and resilient, providing essential ecological services such as clean air and clean water, sustenance and food security for local communities and more broadly for the welfare of current and future generations.

works across southern Costa Rica, connecting and protecting landscapes and biodiversity from the
ridges of the Talamanca mountains to the coral reefs of the Golfo Dulce and the Pacific Ocean.
Be part of our conservation successes and come get your boots dirty in one of Earth’s greatest

The Sea Turtle Conservation Program focuses on safeguarding the four sea turtle species that nest
along the beaches bordering the Osa Conservation Campus. Interns will learn to lead beach patrols and
sea turtle nest censuses, record data, build sustainable hatcheries, relocate nests, release thousands of
baby sea turtles every year, and gain hands-on experience conserving vital nesting habitat and
safeguarding the future of sea turtle populations. Our program has evolved to incorporate technologies
to advance sea turtle monitoring and research.

Short-term intern activities, training and experience:
Short-term internships are designed to empower and immerse early-career conservationists in one of
the most important neotropical landscapes on Earth while developing crucial career skills. Come live in a
tropical rainforest and learn alongside an outstanding community of conservationists, biologists, media-
specialists, educators, community outreach leaders, and more, to fill knowledge gaps and push the
frontier of tropical conservation. This team will provide one-on-one training and mentorship, to equip
interns with experience and skills to begin their conservation and nature career.

The Sea Turtle Conservation short-term intern will:
● Be trained and participate in sea turtle population monitoring on two important and pristine
nesting beaches for the threatened olive ridley and green sea turtles. Be part of one of the only
sea turtle programs that has incorporated innovative technologies such as smartphones and a
monitoring app, and thermal imaging drones during our activities and learn how to record
essential data to assess population trends and predation rates.
● During morning censuses, you will gain expertise in finding and relocating threatened nests to
