3 weeks ago | PhD position | Finland
A four year PhD project at the University of Turku (Turku, Finland) and supervised by Dr. Elie Gaget and Prof Jon E. Brommer, in collaboration with Dr. Martin Jung from IIASA (Laxenburg, Austria). The project will use information about the management practices funded under the EU LIFE programme inside Natura 2000 protected areas, and 40,000 abundance time series of almost 450 bird species (breeding and non-breeding) across Europe. Using hierarchical modelling based on local abundance time series, the candidate will quantify past and forecast future population changes with regards to interactions between conservation measures and climate warming. The framework will take into account species habitat preferences, functional traits and shifts in ecological niches over time to provide additional context to the expected species population changes.
