The French Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) is seeking a Full Time Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Institut Pluridisciplinaire Hubert Curien (IPHC) located in Strasbourg, France to develop a generic GIS approach of spatial movement analysis of GPS-tracked human and non-human subjects in relation to natural and artificial landscapes. In one hand, the fellow will investigate, through an epidemiological transition approach, mobility in semi-nomadic Fulanis in Senegal. In the context of the Great Green Wall, the pastoralist Fulanis living in the Ferlo Region of the Desert of Sahel are subjected to rapid environmental changes, which are impacting their lifestyles, nutrition, physical behavior, mobility, and health. In the other hand, the fellow will develop a GIS-based approach for assessing the behavior of GPS-tracked wildlife species. The goal of this post-doctoral fellowship is to analyze data collected over the last years by researchers at the IPHC and to contribute to fieldwork, namely in Senegal in winter 2021, where she/he will join a multidisciplinary team in order to assess the impact of environmental factors on spatial movements and associated behaviors and health outcomes.

- Analyze the data
- Perform statistical analyzes
- Disseminate the results through publications and presentations at national and international conferences.
- Compile, write and present the results of research studies to internal or external stakeholders.


- Experience and previous training in GPS, accelerometry-based activity monitors, and wearable loggers

Work Context

The IPHC is a joint research unit under the joint supervision of the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg (UMR7178). It is located in Strasbourg in France. The IPHC is a successful example of multidisciplinarity where research teams from different scientific cultures (ecology, physiology and ethology, chemistry and subatomic physics) develop very high-level multidisciplinary programs based on scientific instrumentation.

The main research objective of the Department of Ecology, Physiology and Ethology (DEPE) is to understand the strategies put in place during evolution to enable animal species including humans to cope with the current constraints and modifications of their natural environment.

The Physiological Adaptations to Gravity & Health Team conducts an interdisciplinary research program to understand the respective contribution of the ecological, biological and socio-cultural anthropological factors in the regulation of energy balance, weight and metabolic health.

We are an equal opportunity workplace and do not discriminate against any employees or applicant for employment because of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and basis of disability.
Strasbourg is a city of about 800,000 inhabitants located in the North East of France, close to Germany. It is also the Capital of Europe. Have a quick overview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4oRS-72INY
