Cities grow globally at an accelerating pace. Environmental change due to urbanization is expected to increasingly affect the evolution of extant species, potentially in a climate-dependent way. Yet, the evolutionary consequences of urbanization remain poorly understood, which is a significant problem in evolutionary biology. A few specific and conspicuous examples, however, demonstrate that urbanization-induced evolution takes place, industrial melanism in moths being the classical example of urban adaptation. This project will use a macro-scale approach to comprehensively examine urban adaptation and its climate-dependency by using Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) as study system. The project focuses on four aspects of evolution in urban environments: (1) life history adaptations to urban environments, (2) adaptations to light pollution, (3) physiological adaptations to the urban thermal environment, and (4) the origins of urban adaptations.

The position is in the subject of bioscience, which at Skövde University is defined as the study of biological structures, processes and functions at different levels from biomolecules to living cells, organ systems, whole organisms, populations, species and ecosystems. Your main tasks will be teaching as well as the administration that comes from these tasks. The teaching is conducted together with other teachers in life sciences, especially in the specialization in ecology. The ecology group conducts both teaching and research where the group's research projects focus on the sustainable use of biological resources and nature conservation.

This position is connected to coastal ecology with a focus on macroalgae and their abiotic and biotic interactions, including anthropogenic stressors. Emphasis is put on their adaptations to the seasonal environment of temperate and high-latitude coastal systems and the seasonal dynamics of these prominent primary producers and foundation species.
