PhD student in Ecology (University of Amsterdam)
The PhD student will investigate how induction and suppression of plant defence affect the food web of organisms inhabiting the plant and the community structure of plant-inhabiting arthropods. This entails studying the role of interspecific competition among herbivores and the role of predation. Specific questions are whether other herbivores can benefit from the reduced direct defence of plants attacked by the defence-suppressing spider mite and whether this reduced direct defence affects indirect plant defences through natural enemies. A large part of the research will consist of field experiments, carried out at the Federal University of Vicosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Closing date for application: 20th June 2012.

3-year postdoc in modelling biodiversity responses to human impacts (Imperial College London, UK)
This is an exciting opportunity for a Research Associate with an interest in human impacts on biodiversity. The post is available immediately and is funded for up to 36 months by the Natural Environment Research Council and will be based at the Silwood Park campus.
The main research objective is to develop a rigorous global model of how local biodiversity responds to human impacts, in order to support projections of how alternative socio-political scenarios will affect global and regional biodiversity. Biodiversity data will come from published comparisons of assemblage composition along gradients of threat intensity. You will develop and populate a database of spatio-temporally precise measures of threat intensity corresponding to the diversity data, developing new measures from remote-sensed data as necessary; you will also develop a database to hold species' functional trait data. You will employ advanced statistical modelling tool, such as generalized additive mixed models, to relate diversity to threat intensity. The successful candidate will work closely with Professor Andy Purvis (the Principal Investigator) and collaborators at Silwood Park (Professor Georgina Mace FRS and Dr Rob Ewers) and in Cambridge (Dr Jorn Scharlemann and Dr Tim Newbold at UNEP-WCMC and Dr Drew Purves at Microsoft Research).

PhD student in Ecology at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Project title: The effects of agricultural intensification on food-web interactions and biological pest control

This PhD-study aims to investigate how agricultural intensification affects food-web interactions and biological control of cereal aphids. The student will compare arthropod food webs in cereal crops with different levels of local and/or landscape level agricultural intensification. Molecular gut content analyses will be used to investigate the strength of trophic interactions among different taxa associated with cereal aphids. Analyses will include, e.g. how levels of intra-guild and alternative prey predation are affected by land-use and how this impacts on biological control of cereal aphids. The student will also have the opportunity to conduct manipulative field cage or laboratory studies to test hypotheses derived from the food-web analyses. The results of this work are expected to improve our mechanistic understanding of how land-use and biodiversity affects biological control and will help us find means of improving biocontrol efficacy.

PostDoc in ecological modelling (Zurich, Switzerland)

The German-Swiss cooperation project „Chicken Creek“ (not up to date!) is looking for a PostDoc in ecological modelling. The subproject (C3) aims to develop a general understanding of initial vegetation develop­ment, particularly regarding the formation of spatio-temporal patterns. The focus is on processes, interactions and feedbacks operating within the vege­tation and between vegetation and environment, and on studying their relative im­portance in the course of succession. To this aim, an ecosystem model shall be developed by combining an individual-based vegetation model with a grid-based model of abiotic environmental conditions. Using model simulations under different scenario assumptions, the spatio-temporal trajectories of vegetation dynamics and their predictability will be analyzed. The PostDoc should be able to develop such a model from scratch, thus a sound experience in ecological modelling and ecology is indispensable. Work place will be WSL near Zurich (Switzerland). The project starts in summer 2011, the duration is not yet clear, probably more than 2 years. The project requires a close cooperation with the other scientists of the subproject in Munich (Germany) and with colleagues in Zurich, Potsdam and Cottbus. Knowledge of German will be helpful, but not indispensable.

PhD course: Ecological-Economic modeling – an introduction (Lund University)

Course description: Both ecologists and economists use models to develop strategies for biodiversity management. However, the practical use of single discipline models can be limited because ecological models tend to ignore the socioeconomic dimension of biodiversity management, and economic models the ecological dimension. Given these shortcomings, there is a necessity to integrate ecological and economic knowledge in ecological-economic models. The overriding aim of this course is to increase the student’s capacity to participate in interdisciplinary research that is relevant to solving conservation problems. In this respect ecological-economic modeling will be introduced as a tool for facilitating interdisciplinary research. At the end of the course the student will understand the objectives and limitations of the approach, the basic ingredients of an ecological-economic model needed for conservation policy evaluation and obtain insights into how the approach can be related to the students own research.

Further information can be obtained from here.

Postgraduate scholarship "Mitigating decline of wild plant pollination in agricultural landscapes"

This PhD project is part of a multidisciplinary research program that will investigate ways agri-environmental measures may best be used to preserve wild plant pollination in agricultural landscapes. Pollinators have faced serious declines in farmland during the past centuries and there are fears that crop pollination may be at risk. Less focus has been on consequences for pollination of wild plants. However, pollinator declines may be one reason for the decline of many plants in farmland. This project will focus on the importance of pollinators for wild plant pollination in farmed landscapes and on measures to mitigate the declines of pollinators and wild plant pollination. The project will determine if there is parallel variation in pollinator communities and pollination success of focal plant species. In particular, we will focus on the consequences of changes in community composition of pollinators, e.g. through spill-over effects from agriculturally subsidised generalist pollinators into conservation areas. Furthermore, use of feral pollinators is one way to mitigate effects of loss of the ecosystem service crop pollination; here we will study if this has consequences also for the pollination of wild plants. The work will range from landscape-wide surveys of plants and pollinators to detailed experiments on the dependency of wild plants on insect pollination and consequences of community composition for wild plant pollination. An important part of the project will be to evaluate the possible consequences of agri-environment schemes (and other agri-environmental measures) on pollinators and subsequently on wild plant pollination, to propose cost-efficient ways to mitigate deterioration of wild plant pollination in agricultural landscapes. The project is a collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, and will link to the collaboration with the foremost pollinator ecologists in the European project STEP-Status and Trends of European Pollinators.

Scholarship for PhD studies (Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland)

Topic: Nature conservation management/policy on the jurisdictional, institutional and ecological scales

Understanding cross-scale interaction in the human-environmental system is seen as increasingly important. Taking into account natural, ecological, spacial, social, jurisdictional (intern-governmental, national, provincial, local) and institutional (constitution, laws, regulations, policy instruments) scales and interactions between and within them, seems to be one of the crucial aspects of environmental governance. However, the governance mechanisms or policy instruments often do not match the ecological levels of biodiversity conservation. The mismatch of institutional and ecological scales can directly and indirectly influence the effectiveness of biodiversity conservation.

Closing date for applications: 10 June 2011.
