[deadline 1st December 2012]
A 2-year postdoc position in evolutionary ecology is available at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). The project is on modeling of zooplankton life histories and behavior. Please spread the word to potential candidates. The full announcement is available at: http://www.unis.no/30_ABOUT_UNIS/4020_Vacant_Positions/documents/Announcement%20evolutionary%20ecology.pdf
The Post Doc position is on modeling of life history strategies and annual routines of copepods. Our modeling work is motivated by the ability of mechanistic models to look beyond what can be learnt from observed correlations and predict biological responses to environmental change scenarios. The candidate must have a PhD, or equivalent degree, in biology, computer science, or related fields. We look for individuals with experience from quantitative approaches to ecology, including programing skills, and that are familiar with life history theory, optimization models or individual based models.
