Postdoc en limnología (Austria)

Postdoc/PhD position at the Research Dept. for Limnology, Mondsee, Austria

We are offering a postdoc position within the project Functional Diversity of Planktonic Ciliates, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). This project investigates the taxonomic (TDiv) and, in particular, functional diversity (FDiv) of ciliates in freshwater and the ocean. Our analyses of FDiv will be based upon functional traits (FT) that we will define and weight in their relative significance for the ecosystem level using multivariate statistics. We will use an experimental approach (i.e., numerical and functional responses) and semi-mechanistic models to investigate ciliate responses to food and temperature.

The successful candidate will be responsible for compiling and analysing the existing marine and freshwater FT data and analysing ciliate FDiv using advanced statistics in R. He/she will spend ~9 months in the partner laboratory at Liverpool, conducting experimental laboratory work and field work. The position is also open for suitable PhD candidates.

Employment will start as soon as possible and last until September, 2022. Salary level is according to FWF project standards (gross salary currently 54,453.00 € p.a. for Postdocs, see https://www.fwf.ac.at/en/research-funding/personnel-costs/).

***
Nombre del proyecto: Danube Island Nature Adventure volunteering project with BROZ in Slovakia
Proyecto

¿Te gusta la naturaleza y aprender sobre la conservación del medio ambiente? ¡Participa en nuestro proyecto único de conservación a orillas del Danubio! Nuestro proyecto es para aquellos que no tienen miedo de ensuciarse las manos, ayudando en la conservación de la naturaleza de las últimas grandes islas fluviales del Danubio. Este es lugar emblemático que BROZ ha logrado preservar en un ecosistema único y en peligro de rápida desaparición.
Tareas

Las actividades diarias incluyen trabajar con animales de nuestro parque, hacer pequeñas manualidades, conversar y dar la bienvenida a los visitantes, ayudar con las excursiones escolares y el campamento y hacer trabajo de campo basadas en su interés y conocimiento. El entorno ofrece muchas oportunidades para involucrarse e implementar sus propias ideas. El parque está ubicada en Veľký Lel, cerca de la ciudad de Komárno, en el sur de Eslovaquia, muy cerca de la isla de Velky Lel.
Logística

Los voluntarios vivirán en el parque. Se proporcionará un apartamento de 2 dormitorios en el mismo emplazamiento. El parque es un lugar de trabajo muy ajetreado, especialmente durante la temporada primavera-otoño (personal de BROZ, excursiones escolares, turistas, visitantes).. La comida será organizada por voluntarios (con la posibilidad de pedir el almuerzo en un restaurante en Komárno). Hay una pequeña tienda de comestibles cercana y una tienda de alimentos más grande en Zlatná na Ostrove. Un gran supermercado está en Komárno (10 km). Los voluntarios tendrán bicicletas para el transporte y podrán usar los automóviles de la organización
Perfil del Voluntario

Preferiblemente se necesitan voluntarios que hablen inglés (es un entorno en el que principalmente se habla eslovaco o húngaro). Amantes de la naturaleza, comunicativos, que les gustes los niños y sin miedo a asumir un desafío. Estamos buscando personas independientes, motivadas y con una actitud positiva, que puedan sugerir mejoras y puedan poner en práctica sus propias ideas.

El entorno de trabajo es rural, en un parque en un pequeño pueblo (aunque buena conexión de tren a otras ciudades).. La experiencia de montar a caballo o de cuidado de caballos es bienvenida.

Voluntariado con aves en Australia (gastos cubiertos)

We are looking foronefield assistant to help search nests of a small bird,
mangrove gerygone and large-billed gerygonein Darwin. The main objective
of this research is to gain a better understanding of the breeding ecology
of gerygone species, and the coevolution between gerygone species and
little bronze-cuckoo. Research will be conducted in Darwin, Australia. We
will be based inDarwin city, and travel to several sites. A volunteer
field assistant is needed from the beginning/mid of Marchto April/May
2020 for two months. The exact datesareflexible but need to be around
this time.

Overall duties will include nest searching and monitoring, recording
begging calls and adult calls for cuckoos, and data entry. Previous
experience with fieldwork is highly desired, and nest searching experience
is also preferred, but not required. The large-bill gerygone build
nests over the water, and the height of nests varies from 1m to 5m. The
mangrovegerygone's habitat is open salt flats. The study site is rugged,
hot, and venomous snakes and ticks are quite common. Working days are
long, with early starts, six days a week. Therefore, applicants must
have good physical fitness to walk along the creek with a heavy ladder,
withstand harsh conditions at the site, and maintain an energetic
attitude despite long hours in hot and humid conditions. Work schedules
and duties will vary, so flexibility is a must. Applicants should work
well alone and in a small group and have a sense of direction to work
in remote areas. Previous experience with fieldwork is highly desired,
and nest searching experience is also preferred, but a positive attitude
is much more important than tons of field experience.

Housing will be provided, and you can get reimbursed for food and flights
up to $750 AUD per month and you will enjoy fantastic wildlife viewing
opportunities in Darwin.

To apply, send a cover letter detailing interests, previous relevant
field research experience, dates of availability and a CV as well as
a list of names and contact information for 2 referees to Hee-Jin Noh
(hjnoh891@gmail.com).

Please feel free to enquire with any questions related to the application
process or on the project in general.
