[CESAB] Postdoctoral position - Marine climate and plankton diversity

Job information

 

Location: CEREGE – Technopôle de l’Arbois, Aix en Provence – France  

Salary: 2250€ per month

Contract: 2 years fixed term, full time

Closing date: 31 August 2019

Starting date: 1 November 2019

Postdoctoral position

 

Applicants are expected to get involved with data synthesis in the Forcis  project – Foraminifera Response to Climatic Stress – including standardization and harmonization of data sets, and synthesis of historical plankton data-sets. The objective will be to assemble a comprehensive GIS database including historical data sets of plankton (tows, traps, continuous recorders, pump samples, etc.) in the global ocean, and associated hydrographic data. The compilation of the modern foraminifera data will lead to an improved calibration of the FORAMCLIM model. The new database will be used to compare the global biomass distribution of planktonic foraminifera to the EcoGEnIE 3D model.

 

More information about Forcis here. 

 

Requirements

 

Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in Marine Sciences with a focus on paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, marine biogeochemical cycles, micropaleontology, and planktic ecosystems. Experience in scientific computation, data management, and numerical modelling is required, as well as excellent English language skills, and a desire and willingness to work in an international and interdisciplinary team.

[CESAB] Post doctoral position - An angiosperm-wide analysis of breeding system evolution and associated traits

Job information

 

Location: FRB – CESAB, 5, rue de l’École de Médecine, 34000 Montpellier, France

Salary: 2250€ per month

Contract: 2 years fixed term, full time

Closing date: 31 August 2019

Starting date: 1 November 2019

 

The project

 

The CESAB project “DiveRS” is looking for a motivated candidate for a two-year postdoctoral position on angiosperm breeding system evolution. The project is a collaborative effort of 15 researchers* from different parts of the world to understand how breeding system evolution in plants is linked to the evolution of other traits, as well as speciation and extinction. So far, several patterns have been observed and described, such as the “selfing syndrome” or the correlations of sexual systems with life-history traits, and these have been used to try to understand the effect of breeding systems on evolutionary success. However, many traits that are associated with breeding systems are also thought to influence diversification through other ways. To better distinguish causes and effects, this project seeks to define integrated  evolutionary strategies among these traits and then to investigate how these strategies evolve and shape the diversification process in flowering plants. This will be done by gathering and analyzing complementary databases on breeding systems and other plant traits with large-scale phylogenetic information.

 

* DiveRS members are : Bruce Anderson (Stellenbosch University, South Africa), Sylvain Billiard (University of Lille 1, France), Concetta Burgarella (CIRAD Montpellier, France), Hugo de Boer (University of Oslo, Norway), Mathilde Dufaÿ (University of Montpellier, France), Sylvain Glémin (PI, CNRS Rennes, France), Emma Goldberg (University of Minnesota, USA), Jos Käfer (co-PI, CNRS Lyon, France), Sarah Otto (University of British Columbia, Canada), Marcos Méndez (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain), John Pannell (University of Lausanne, Switzerland), Denis Roze (CNRS Roscoff, France), Daniel Schoen (McGill University, Canada), Jürg Schönenberger (University of Vienna, Austria), Mario Vallejo-Marin (University of Stirling, UK).

 

More information about the project DiveRS here. 

 

Postdoctoral position

 

The role of the postdoctoral researcher will be central in this project, as he/she will work directly on a database of angiosperm breeding systems and possibly associated traits. He/she will combine information from several published databases and currently private data collections of the project participants. He/she will conduct multivariate analyses on these data, and put these in a phylogenetic context. Further questions studied will depend on the researcher’s interests and skills, but could include diversification analyses, study of genome architecture, and developing or adapting mathematical models.

The postdoctoral researcher will be based at CESAB in the Montpellier city center. He/she will be assisted by CESAB’s data-analyst, and will have frequent interactions with the project coordinators Sylvain Glémin (PI, Rennes) and Jos Käfer (co-PI, Lyon). The researchers participating in the project will meet twice a year in  Montpellier, and the postdoctoral researcher can perform short-term visits to some of their labs.

 

Requirements

 

The candidate should have a background in evolution and ecology. As the researcher will directly deal with large datasets of plants and their traits, at least some knowledge of botany and plant systematics is essential. Furthermore, the candidate should have experience with the informatic and statistical treatment of large datasets. Previous experience with database management is a plus. Finally, the candidate is expected to have an interest and experience in at least one of the following fields: phylogenetic comparative methods, ancestral state reconstructions, diversification analyses, evolutionary genetics, mathematical modeling. Good  communication skills in English are required, and at least some knowledge of French (or the motivation to learn some) would be beneficial.
