In the framework of the GAARAnti Project (ANR; evolution of terrestrial Caribbean faunas under the control of tectonics), the researcher will identify the impact of major Cenozoic tectonic events in the Caribbean domain, on mammalian evolution (distribution, diversification, and extinction).


-Inventory of past and present mammalian biodiversity in the Caribbean domain;
-Identification of stratigraphical ranges for the taxa considered and their kin;
-Use of probabilistic approaches, biogeographical models (DEC / DECX) and multifactor models (RPANDA).


-expertise in mammalian taxonomy, biogeography, ecology, and biostratigraphy (Cenozoic);
-skills in morpho-anatomical and molecular phylogeny (topology, inferences) ;
-knowledge in computer language and basic programming.

Work Context

For almost 40 years, the Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution de Montpellier (ISEM) (Université de Montpellier, CNRS, IRD, EPHE, CIRAD, INRAP) has been developing research on the origin and dynamics of biodiversity, on patterns and processes of its evolution. Research fields concern recent and past biodiversity of a wide array of organisms and environments, encompassing field, experimental, and theroretical approaches.

The ISEM gathers ~160 permanent personnel and ~90 short-termed contracts and PhD students.

The successful candidate will be part of the Paleontology Team, and he/she will deeply interact with researchers from the Phylogénie et Evolution Moléculaires team (classic workstation; access granted to all ISEM facilities, including clusters).

The candidate would participate in field expeditions (Caribbean, South America).
