2 x 3 year Postdoctoral Research Positions on Stream Connectivity
Swansea University (Department of BioSciences)
Deadline 30 May 2017

We are offering two full time 3-year postdoctoral research positions to join the large multidisciplinary AMBER research team who aims to provide a better understanding of the causes and consequences of stream fragmentation for multiple taxa and across spatial and temporal scales. The positions will be based at Swansea University on the Singleton Campus within the Centre for Sustainable Aquatic Research (CSAR, Biological Sciences http://www.swansea.ac.uk/biosci/) and have attractive salaries and work package benefits.

Position 1 – Predictive Modelling of Barrier Impacts on Stream Connectivity


We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher with an excellent track record commensurate with career stage and experience working on freshwater ecosystems, community connectivity and predictive modelling (spatial/GIS, animal movement). The successful candidate will be expected to assemble ecological survey data into a single pan-European database in order to generate predictive models of barrier impacts on river biodiversity under various scenarios of water management and climate change. The application form and further details can be found here.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to Prof Luca Borger (l.borger@swansea.ac.uk) or Prof Carlos Garcia de Leaniz (c.garciadeleaniz@swansea.ac.uk)

Position 2 – Novel Molecular and Ecological Metrics of Stream Connectivity


We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher with an excellent track record commensurate with career stage and experience on freshwater ecosystems, molecular methods (eDNA, metabarcoding) and habitat fragmentation. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and test novel molecular and ecological metrics of stream connectivity in order to gain a better understanding of the impacts of stream barriers and of potential mitigating strategies under various scenarios of river flow, land-use and climate change. The application form and further details can be found here.
