Job opportunities

The FRB was created in 2008 and brings together public research organisations, environmental associations, managers of spaces and biological resources, as well as companies.

It is a point of convergence between science and society, around the challenges facing biodiversity research today.

CESAB - Postdoc 18 months - Disentangling landscape and local factors in shaping the taxonomic and functional plant community diversity of roadside corridors, river corridors and cultivated field margins across a European gradient

Location: FRB – CESAB, Center for the Analysis and Synthesis of Biodiversity, 5, rue de l’École de Médecine, 34000 MONTPELLIER
Contract: Fixed-term contract for 18 months. This is a full-time position.
Salary: 2518 € gross per month (not negotiable)
 
Closing date: 31st January 2022
Starting date: March 2022
The BRIDGE project is an international project co-funded by the French Foundation for Biodiversity Research and the ITTECOP (Land Transport Infrastructures, Ecosystems and Landscapes Program (https://ittecop.fr/en/). The main objective of BRIDGE is to understand how landscape interactions between roadside corridors, river corridors and cultivated field margins shape the taxonomic and functional plant community diversity across a European gradient. A specific objective of the project will be to disentangle between biodiversity landscape level controls (landscape architecture and connectivity) and local controls (physical disturbance, substrate nutrient content…). At the landscape scale, we predict that the geographic proximity (vicinity, intersection) among the three studied habitats enhances both taxonomic (species) and functional (trait) diversities, as a result of a greater connectivity and dispersal between linear habitats. At the local scale, we predict that the nature and level of physical disturbance and trophic stress are the main drivers of functional redundancy/complementarity and taxonomical similarity among the different habitat types. At an applied level, we will investigate under which ecological conditions and landscape configurations the different linear ecosystems drive particular functional and taxonomic biodiversities that are likely to correspond to optimal situations for the interest of local or regional stakeholders.
 
The post-doc will be hosted in Montpellier (France) by the CESAB. The job holder will be under the supervision of Eric Tabacchi (CNRS, Toulouse) and Guillaume Fried (Anses, Montpellier) and will benefit from the expertise of all project members (8 persons from 6 countries with specialists in botany, land use planning, invasive species and functional ecology) and from the methodological and logistic support of the CESAB.
 
See the full description of the job offer.
How to apply? Applications must be sent no later than 12:00 pm, Central European Time, 31st January 2022 to: eric.tabacchi@univ-tlse3.fr and guillaume.fried@anses.fr

CESAB - Postdoc 24 months - Supporting climate resilience through equitable ocean conservation

Location: FRB – CESAB, Center for the Analysis and Synthesis of Biodiversity, 5, rue de l’École de Médecine, 34000 MONTPELLIER
Contract: Fixed-term contract for 24 months. This is a full-time position.
Salary: 30 216 € gross per year (not negotiable)
 
Closing date: 31st January 2022
Starting date: 1st May 2022
Climate change is rapidly transforming the ocean with disproportionate impacts on vulnerable societies in least developed countries. Concurrently, the expansion of area-based conservation is also transforming our ocean. Marine protected areas (MPAs) can be effective tools to build local social-ecological resilience to climate stressors and provide other societal benefits. However, if poorly implemented, marine conservation can also lead to inequitable outcomes, compromising the wellbeing of vulnerable coastal peoples and undermining long-term conservation success. The urgency and magnitude of climate change impacts and implications of inequitable conservation expansion necessitate robust, evidence-based strategies and policies at multiple scales.
 
The FRB-CESAB project BLUE JUSTICE will produce original, solution-oriented research based on the synthesis of multiple existing, and newly assembled, global datasets on social and ecological conditions in marine systems. Specifically, we will examine the relationship between marine conservation governance and social-ecological outcomes, generating novel insights on the conditions that promote equity and climate resilience in vulnerable coastal groups (including women and Indigenous groups), and produce the first global evidence-base on innovative pathways towards greater equity and resilience in marine conservation.
 
The post-doc is expected to:
  • Assemble and manage global datasets on social and ecological conditions in marine systems to examine the relationship between climate vulnerability, marine conservation, and equity across local to global scales;
  • Synthesize knowledge to develop evidence-based guidance on linkages between equity and resilience through conservation planning, implementation, and monitoring;
  • Lead peer-reviewed papers based on this work;
  • Assist the coordination of the BLUE JUSTICE project;
  • Contribute to the building, standardization and management of a shared database among project partners;
  • Work alongside project partners to generate a practical and feasible multi-sector engagement strategy to implement and scale up best practices for improving equity, maximizing conservation outcomes, and building climate resilience.
