2 weeks ago | Postdoctoral fellow | Sweden
A postdoctoral research position focused on reproductive and social behaviours is available in John Fitzpatrick’s research group in the Department of Zoology at Stockholm University. The aim of this project is to examine the links between social affiliations and reproductive dynamics in animals. To do this, the project will use a laboratory population of several closely related livebearing fish species maintained at the Department of Zoology.

A postdoctoral research position focused on applying phylogenetic comparative methods to study behavioural and morphological trait evolution is available in John Fitzpatrick’s research group in the Department of Zoology at Stockholm University.
2 weeks ago | PhD position | Sweden
The Gotthard lab at the Department of Zoology at Stockholm University is looking for a new PhD student. The position is 4-year, fully funded and will start as soon as possible. Karl Gotthard research group is focusing on the evolution of life history and plasticity in seasonal environments, using primarily natural populations of butterflies as model organisms.
3 weeks ago | PhD position | Norway
VisAviS is structured in four work packages: 1) national mapping of major flyways, 2) local assessment of migratory behaviour, 3) spatio-temporal analysis of species-specific phenology, and 4) development of a multi-scale bird migration visualisation tool. The successful candidate will mainly work on work package 1, but will also participate and take part in the other work packages depending on the candidate’s interests and skills as well as links across work packages.

A PhD position in soil biology with specialization in soil ecology and biogeochemistry of northern forests is available at the Department of Soil and Environment of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala. The appointed PhD student will work within the VR project: ‘Invasive earthworms in northern Scandinavia; effects on soil microorganisms and carbon dynamics’. The position is placed within the Soil Biology group, a strong research environment where molecular analyses constitute a foundation for integrating theories of how microorganisms interact with plants and the soil food web to regulate biological processes in soils as well as ecosystem production and carbon (C) sequestration.
4 weeks ago | Postdoctoral fellow | Denmark
The main aim of this research project is to determine a set of plant features (e.g. ecological niche, life-history traits, distribution range and local abundance, long-term population dynamics) that best predict extinction risk in Central and Northern European vascular plants. Based on these predictors, we aim to develop a publicly available, dynamic database predicting local and regional plant diversity loss. To achieve this, we will apply state-of-the-art statistical methods (e.g., novel machine learning approaches) to improve predictions and reveal potentially hidden relationships.
4 weeks ago | Assistant Professor | Sweden
The subject covers functional genomics research on the processes and mechanisms that generate and maintain adaptations and genetic diversity within and across vertebrate or invertebrate species.
1 month ago | PhD position | Sweden
The Department of Zoology invites applications for a four-year PhD position. The project is aimed at investigating the consequences of climate warming on butterfly reproduction.
