We are seeking a highly motivated individual to join our team as a post-doctoral researcher for 2 years in the Department of Ecology & Environmental Science at Umeå University, Sweden. The goal of our project is to investigate landscape- & catchment-scale controls on biodiversity after stream restoration due to over a century of timber-floating in northern Sweden. Based on our research results, we will develop a framework for predicting the result of restoration projects within a catchment.
We are looking for a scientist interested in and capable of bridging the fields of riparian ecology and fluvial geomorphology that has experience with landscape-scale analyses (e.g., GIS DEM or landuse data). Possible research focuses are how potential geomorphic complexity and landscape-scale controls affect restoration success and how regional land use or plant colonist sources dispersed by air or water determine restoration success.
Please be advised that the deadline for applications is January 16, 2017 (11:59 PM CET) and we are looking for someone that can start this spring in order to be ready for potential field work during the summer. A full description of the position and application procedure can be found here: https://umu.mynetworkglobal.com/en/what:job/jobID:126605/
In addition to a summary of previous research experience, the application should include a short description of your research ideas as they relate to this project. If you would like more information about the project in order to develop your research ideas, please don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor Christer Nilsson (email@example.com).
