I am currently hiring for a postdoc position (see job ad below and atwinfreelab.com <http://winfreelab.com>), and would welcome applicationsfrom any qualified candidates you might recommend.Thanks!RachaelPostdoctoral Opening in Biodiversity-Ecosystem Services / PollinationCreative and highly motivated candidates with strong track records ofresearch productivity are invited to apply for an NSF-fundedPostdoctoral Associate position. Position will involve research at theintersection of biodiversity-ecosystem services research and pollinationecology and is based in Rachael Winfree’s lab group at RutgersUniversity (winfreelab.com <http://winfreelab.com>). The selectedapplicant will lead a landscape-scale field experiment to explore therelationship between pollinator diversity and the pollination deliveredto spring ephemeral plant communities, as well as leading the analysisand paper-writing for the project. The project is a collaboration withNeal Williams at UC Davis and the Postdoctoral Associate will workcollaboratively with both Winfree and Williams on multiple aspects ofthe project. Applications will be evaluated based on past researchproductivity, alignment of applicant experiences with the goals of theWinfree lab, and the individual’s potential to grow as a productive,independent investigator.

Doktorand i biodiversitetsforskning till Trondheim!

Publicerat av GBIF-Sweden --

Dear all,

excellent candidates for a PhD position on “Biodiversity in heterogeneous environments“ are wanted at NTNU. Department of Biology at NTNU in Trondheim (Norway) can fund two PhD positions among 14 different topics. We would like to find an excellent and highly motivated candidate for going into the competition of the projects funded by the Department of Biology. Our project aims to test theories on how landscape topography with all its microclimatic variation affects species capacity to adapt or disperse in response to climate change. The approaches to study this topic will involve fieldwork, theoretical and/or macroecological methods. If this sounds interesting to you, please read more about the project here and take contact with one of us before 22nd of January using the below email addresses:

Irja Ida Ratikainenirja.i.ratikainen@ntnu.no

Dear evolutionary biology colleagues,

Det fjärde mötet Evolution in Sweden äger rum i Lund 13-14 Januari 2016. Registreringen har n öppnat och sker via http://www.evolutioninsweden.lu.se/registration. Av utrymmesskäl är antalet deltagare begränsat till 110 så tidig registrering rekommenderas (om intresset skulle visa sig vara mycket stort kan byte av lokal komma i fråga). Deltagandet är kostnadsfritt. Det går även bra att boka konferensmiddag samtidigt som registrering görs. Mer information återfinns på http://www.evolutioninsweden.lu.se/about. Plenarföredragshållare:http://www.evolutioninsweden.lu.se/plenary-speakers.
