Oferta de doctorado de 3 años en Dinamarca estudiando biogeografía

PhD fellowship in Island biogeography of mutualistic networks in the
Anthropocene at GLOBE Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark We
are offering 1 PhD fellowship in island biogeography of mutualistic
networks in the Anthropocene commencing 1 January 2021.

Our group and research
The successful candidate will be part of the Dalsgaard Group
(https://globe.ku.dk/research/cmec/dalsgaard-group/) within the
Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate (CMEC) at the GLOBE
Institute, University of Copenhagen. CMEC is a center of excellence
with a cross-disciplinary research program. We offer creative and
stimulating working conditions in a dynamic and international research
environment addressing fundamental questions on the origin, maintenance,
conservation and future of life and biological diversity on Earth. The
40+ researchers at CMEC currently represent 14 different nationalities
and the working language is English. The center juxtaposes faculty staff
scientists from the fields of macroecology, historical biogeography,
oceanography, evolutionary biology, community ecology, population biology,
climate change research, conservation biology and environmental economics.

Project description
This project is novel in integrating island biogeography theory and
theories on how climate and anthropogenic pressures influence mutualistic
plant-pollinator and seed-disperser interactions. The project combines
field work data collected in the Caribbean with network analysis and
biogeographical modelling. The PhD student will work closely together
with a postdoc to jointly lead data collection across numerous islands
in the Caribbean. The PhD student should be prepared to collect data for
approximately 4-5 months in both 2020 and 2021, and s/he is expected to
first-author several papers in international peer-reviewed journals. In
addition to the PhD-student, we will hire a postdoc and a cohort of MSc
students will participate in the project. All project partners will
gather once a year to run workshops with the aim of publishing review
and synthesis papers. The project is funded by Independent Research
Fund Denmark.

Principal supervisor is Associate Professor Bo Dalsgaard,
Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, GLOBE Institute,
