Master and Doctorate positions in Ecology at the UFRN in Natal, Brazil

Posted by:

Location: Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, Natal, Brasil.

Project: Linking metapopulation processes and metacommunity stability, investigating how spatial grain and extent, environmental heterogeneity and species traits determine stability across spatial scales (i.e., alpha, beta, gama stability).

Registration is open until 15/11/2018.

Open Call for Transnational Access to European Aquatic Mesocosm Facilities in 2019

Posted by:

The EU Research Infrastructure project AQUACOSM (http://aquacosm.eu) has opened the Call for Transnational Access to fund participation or leadership of mesocosm experiments in 2019. We open for access to more than 37 aquatic mesocosm facilities, located at 19 AQUACOSM partners throughout Europe. In total AQUACOSM will offer more than 11500 person-days of Transnational Access (TA) between Jan 2018 and Dec 2020. This call opens for >3800 person days.

AQUACOSM offers funding for mesocosm experiments through a unique collaborative international project, representing ...

PhD-Candidate “Occurrence and fate of microplastics in the Southern Ocean”

Posted by:

Very recent studies indicate that microplastics (MP) is present in the Southern Ocean, however, many questions are open, such as: What type of MP are present, and in which region and compartments of the ocean? Is there evidence for MP originating outside of Antarctic waters? The research group man-society-environment of the University of Basel will explore in this project MP occurrence and distribution in water, sediment and possibly also in icecores and biota. The MP will be analysed in terms ...

PhD student in Freshwater Ecology at The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ)

Posted by:

Topic:

Multiple stressors affect the structural integrity of major stream compartments differently, which may alter the share of the pelagic, benthic and hyporheic zone to whole-stream nutrient uptake and may be one of the reasons for the persistently elevated nutrient emissions from catchments. With the interdisciplinary project “Linking catchment scale nutrient export to pelagic, benthic and hyporheic ecosystem functioning across stressor gradients“, we will study the link between compartmental- and whole-stream nutrient uptake and its biological and ...

2 PhD positions in University of Canberra, Australia

Posted by:

Two PhD projects to research how temperature and seasonal and daily temperature variability affect biodiversity, temperature tolerance and dispersal.

Predicting effects of changes in climatic conditions on the distribution of species remains highly challenging. Climate change is predicted to increase both mean temperature and variability in temperature, and it is critical to have a strong mechanistic understanding of how organisms are likely to respond to future thermal environments. The Climate Variability Hypothesis (Janzen 1967) relates seasonal thermal variability to species’ distributions, ...

Postdoctoral and PhD positions on catchment ecology and modelling

Posted by:

We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral and PhD researchers to join our research team at
the Institute of Marine Sciences, Middle East Technical University. The researchers will be working
with Dr. Korhan Özkan (www.korhanozkan.org) and Dr. Barış Salihoğlu. Both positions will be
funded from MARMOD Project (Integrated Modelling System for the Marmara Sea) and conduct
research principally on catchment-sea interactions around the Marmara Sea but also on the other
systems (for example Göksu Catchment in Mersin).
The tasks involved in ...
