Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Quantitative Ecology of Coral Reefs- Queensland
The School of Biological Sciences at The University of Queensland is seeking to fill a new Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in the Centre’s research program Ecosystem dynamics: past, present and future. This program brings together ecologists, evolutionary biologists, geneticists, oceanographers and palaeontologists to examine the dynamics of reefs across the full spectrum of scales from population dynamics to macro-evolution. They are interested in recruiting someone who can bring new perspectives and approaches to these disciplines. The successful appointee will have access to some ongoing support, and will be encouraged to apply for his/her own research funding. There are opportunities to work with large data sets and to be part of research teams, to address individually-developed and collaboratively-generated research questions, and to supervise honours, masters and doctoral students.
The school is seeking candidates with postdoctoral research interests in the long-term ecological dynamics of biological communities. The successful applicant will conduct empirical research into understanding the long-term ecological dynamics of reef coral communities using multiple large data sets at multiple temporal scales. As part of the Marine Palaeoecology Lab in the School of Biological Sciences and the ARC Centre of Excellence, the position duties are primarily related to the implementation of novel quantitative techniques applicable to time-series data that test fundamental ecological hypotheses in community ecology.
