The selected applicant will take over the study of the possible impacts of intraspecific richness –at multiple trophic levels- on the structure of communities and the functioning of ecosystems, such as primary production and decomposition rate.
The candidate will be in charge of designing and conducting original experiments both in mesocosms and in the field, and should hence be familiar with functional ecology, evolutionary biology and freshwater biology. The candidate will also be involved in intensive field campaigns and on the measurement of ecosystem functions in natura.
We seek highly motivated individuals with a good command of English. Candidates should have a PhD in Ecology or Evolutionary Ecology. The candidate must be familiar with advanced statistical tools. An experience in invertebrate and fish biology and with the associated constraints (managing animal welfare tasks) would be an advantage.
The position is part of the EEDYL team (Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics in changing Landscapes), notably aiming at understanding patterns of intraspecific biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems and its consequences on ecosystem functioning. This position is part of a project aiming at understanding and quantifying the role of intraspecific diversity on ecosystem functioning.
