The Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre of Portugal (MARE) is seeking candidates for postdoctoral and doctoral fellowships at their lab in Madeira (Portugal). MARE is seeking motivated candidates interested in developing research in the themes of biodiversity, conservation, marine ecology and ecosystem functioning. Specifically, MARE is aiming for the following research topics:
Postdoctoral theme 1 - Ecological niche modeling, habitat suitability and spatial analyses
Postdoctoral theme 2 - Using coastal and pelagic seabirds as indicators of marine litter in marine ecosystems
Doctoral theme 1 - Evaluating responses of marine benthic communities under different scenarios of anthropogenic pressures (e.g. invasive species, pollution)
Doctoral theme 2 - Multidisciplinary approach to assess impacts of non-indigenous species proliferation on diet and feeding behavior of target native species
Candidates interested in developing a working plan under these topics together with research scientists at MARE-Madeira, should send a Cover Letter and CV to mare-madeiramare-centre [dot] pt. Candidates should also list which of the above topics they are interested in.
