Research Scientist in Global Change Ecology, CSIRO, Australia

This position requires skills in biosecurity (as it relates to invasive species management), plant ecology and plant-herbivore interactions, and will be based with the Ecosystem Change Ecology team in Perth, Western Australia. The role is required to conduct innovative research using the latest advances in ecology, remote sensing and plant-animal interactions, to develop science-based solutions for invasive species management. The research may involve: elucidating ecological impacts of invasive species; identifying interventions for invasive species management; empirical research on ecology and ecophysiology of focal invasive species; and mitigating the impact of global environmental change on invasive species threats.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 3 November 2019 (23:00 Australian Eastern Standard Time). For more information, including details of how to apply, please see the following document: Research_Scientist_Global_Change_Ecology

Postdoctoral Fellow: Global Change Ecologist, University of Adelaide

Seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on a trending issue in global change ecology: how and why the ranges of species contract in response to climate and environmental change?

The Postdoctoral Fellow will lead the development of spatially explicit ecological models that use characteristics of past population dynamics, to reconstruct the range dynamics of select megafauna and medium-sized vertebrates in three broad geographic regions (Eurasia, America and Oceania) over the last 21,000 years.

Candidates should have a strong research interest in global change ecology, paleoecology, eco-evolutionary dynamics or conservation biology. Applications close on 17 November 2019. For further information, please visit:
