Two post-docs in Freshwater Ecology (Jefferson Project, NY, USA)

Posted by:

The Jefferson Project at Lake George (https://jeffersonproject.rpi.edu/) is hiring two post-docs to conduct research in freshwater ecology. Research topics include invasive species, salinization, eutrophication, algal blooms, and global warming. The post-docs will conduct basic and applied experiments across multiple venues including the lab, land-based mesocosms, and in-lake mesocosms. They will also analyze high-frequency data from our highly advanced network of weather, stream, and lake sensors.

The Jefferson Project is an unprecedented research endeavor devised to study stream, wetland, and lake ecosystems ...

POSTDOC position in R&D – Researcher in the Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Biochemistry

Posted by:

Basic Description of the Laboratory Activities

The laboratory engages in both basic and applied research, university education and commercial activities in the field of aquatic toxicology, biochemistry and environmental chemistry. Our research is focused on fate and effects of extraneous substances, esp. pharmaceuticals, personal care products and pesticides, in
aquatic environment. The laboratory activity is focused on occurrence of xenobiotic substances in water ecosystems and investigation of their impact on exposed organisms. Laboratory scale toxicological studies belong to important part of experimental activities as well as field sampling of water and fish. Experiments are mainly focused on ...

Post-doctoral position on long-term data analyses of ECO-EVO-DEVO dynamics in threespine stickleback of lake Mývatn, Iceland

Posted by:

Hólar University, Iceland, seeks a Post-doctoral fellow for a Grant of Excellence (RANNIS) project to study the dynamics of Ecological (ECO), Evolutionary (EVO) and Developmental (DEVO) processes

The phenotype is an important determinant of the dynamic interactions between ecological and evolutionary processes. We are looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral candidate to study the interplay among ECO, EVO and DEVO including 1) the dual role of ecology in evolution (as driver of natural selection and phenotypic plasticity), 2) the ...

Two PhD positions on ECO-EVO-DEVO dynamics in threespine stickleback of lake Mývatn, Iceland

Posted by:

Hólar University, Iceland, seeks two PhD students for a Grant of Excellence (RANNIS) project to study the dynamics of Ecological (ECO), Evolutionary (EVO) and Developmental (DEVO) processes

The phenotype is an important determinant of the dynamic interactions between ecological and evolutionary processes (eco-evolutionary dynamics) and the processes that shape biological diversity in face of global change. This project will study the interplay among ECO, EVO and DEVO to understand 1) the dual role of ecology in evolution (as driver ...

Two PhD positions available at Queen’s University, Canada

Posted by:

Disturbances have the potential to profoundly alter system dynamics, by changing species diversity, structure and function, and by generating significant spatial and temporal heterogeneity in aquatic habitats. However, the variability of ecosystem structure and function is seldom explicitly considered as a response variable and can reveal underlying mechanisms associated with ecological change. These projects will explore this disturbance-variance relationship to examine aquatic ecosystem response across multiple temporal and spatial scales using both high-frequency and long-term monitoring data: 1) ...
