We are looking for a Postdoctor to conduct research within the ARCTIC-BIODIVER project, with partners in the US, Canada, Denmark/Greenland, Norway and Sweden. The project aims to understand how organism communities, food webs, and ecosystem services in Arctic lakes and rivers are changing in a warmer climate.
The post-doc is expected to initiate, plan and lead research, write scientific articles and supervise graduate students.
As postdoctoral appointments are career-developing positions for junior researchers, we are primarily looking for candidates with a doctoral degree that is three years old at most.
The applicant must hold a PhD in aquatic ecology or equivalent, preferably with a profile in Arctic ecosystems and their food webs. You will also have documented experience of how stable isotopes and lipids are applied in food web research, of experimental studies, and of work in Arctic/alpine environments. Good skills in oral and written communication in English are required, as well as a valid driver's license. Previous postdoc experience is a merit. Great emphasis is placed on personal qualities such as good cooperative ability.
