We seek for two highly motivated young researchers to join a project funded jointly FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation) and NERC (Natural Environment Research Council, UK) aiming at investigating how functional composition is linked to tropical dry forest and savanna (TDFS) restoration success, in order to improve TDFS restoration policy in Brazil and facilitate the creation of TDFS which are resistant to biological invasion and resilient to climate change. Additionally this project will investigate how different aspects of functional diversity is linked with ecosystem functioning (carbon and water balance).
- PhD in Ecology, Meteorology, Hydrology, Forestry, Environmental Sciences or related fields;
- Experience with Functional Ecology / Plant hydraulics; or
- Experience with Eddy flux/ hydrological measurements; or
- Experience with restoration within the tropics;
- Programming skills (R or others) are welcomed and is essential for one of the positions;
- Good knowledge of the English language (skills in Portuguese are welcomed);
- International publication in the field.
Duration: The position is offered for 45 months, starting as soon as possible.
Scholarship value: R$ 7,373 (Brazilian Reais) which is equivalent to ca. US$ 2,500.00 plus a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.
Application deadline: positions are open until filled with full consideration given to applications received by May 30, 2019.
Application process: prepare a cover letter, a CV, and a reference page with the contact information for two professional references. Please send your application, preferably by email to Rafael Oliveira (email@example.com) as one pdf-attachment (with max. 5 MB including all documents).
