Post-Doc – Effects of multiple human and natural stressors
on the potential for recovery in marine coastal systems
Employer: Bologna University – Italy
Expires: 15 December 2010
Description: The Laboratory of Experimental Ecology (LES – http://www.ecology.unibo.it/) – wishes to appoint a post-doctoral fellow to carry on experimental research on the effects of multiple human and natural stressors on the potential for recovery in marine coastal systems. Applicants should have a PhD in a related discipline, a background in experimental ecology and data analysis (possibly also including meta analysis), demonstrated ability to work independently and producing publications, good skills in networking and communication and a positive attitude towards collaboration in a multidisciplinary research group both in the field and the laboratory. Fluent knowledge of English is essential. The results of the project will be translated into zoning plans and regulations for coastal areas in the Adriatic sea and around Europe, therefore some familiarity with GIS would be a desirable requisite. Because part of the research is carried out in the field, diving and boat experience would also be desirable.
