2017_18-month postdoc opportunity on modelling benthic community dynamics

We are currently seeking a motivated and quantitatively minded candidate for an 18-month postdoc fellowship within the Coastal Ecosystem Dynamics (DYNECO: http://wwz.ifremer.fr/dyneco/) at Ifremer, Brest, France. The project is to start in late 2017.

The proposed research will aim at developping a mechanistic model of soft-sediment benthic communities dynamics that will explicitly capture interactions between key commercial (e.g. scallops) and ecologically-significant (e.g. ecosystem engineer such as the invasive slipper limpet) species in western Brittany, France.

The summary of the research proposal. Interested candidates can contact me for further details. The deadline for application is August, 27th 2017
