Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Leipzig, Germany
The German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), integrated with Leipzig University, is currently seeking applications for a two-year postdoc position in Leipzig, Germany. The project is entitled “Beyond the growth-survival trade-off: A global analysis of demographic diversity and trade-offs in species-rich forests.”
This post-doctoral opportunity involves quantifying the contribution of different trade-offs to demographic diversity, identifying how demographic trade-offs are constrained by functional traits of the species, and testing predictions of several species. The project is supervised by Dr. Nadja Rüger (Junior Leader of Forest Ecology group) and carried out in collaboration with Prof. Christian Wirth, Prof. Helge Bruelheide, Prof. Stanley Harpole, Dr. Stuart Davies, and Dr. Joseph Wright.
Applications are accepted until Tuesday 8/15/17. Click here for more information.
