Postdoctoral researcher in demography

What are the effects of sea ice changes on marine predator populations? How do their demographic rates and population dynamics vary as a function of sea ice?

We are looking for a motivated researcher with excellent data analysis skills for an 18 months position on the SENSEI project funded by the Fondation BNP Paribas. The researcher will investigate the effects of sea – ice variability and other environmental drivers on the demography and population dynamics of an Arctic seabird using a 43 years capture-mark-release database.

Candidate profile: PhD degree in ecology, excellent skills in population ecology modelling. Proficient experience and skills in R programming and demographic quantitative methods would be appreciated.

The researcher will be based at Villiers en Bois (France) with visits to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA).

Deadline 11th June 2018

Please send applications to Christophe Barbraud. See here for more information.
