Offre d'emploi en écologie


Faculty of Forest Sciences, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Umeå, Sweden

SLU invites applications for the following 18 month post-doctoral position in Ecosystem Ecology, on the topic of Responses of Ecosystem Properties to Long Term Fire History in Boreal Forest (Ref. Nr. 5566/2013) at the Department of Forest Ecology and Management at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, at Umeå, Sweden. The position is fully financed, including salary and benefits. The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to start on May 1 2004.

The position involves collaboration with researchers based in both Sweden and Quebec, Canada; as such while the position will be based in Umeå, the field work will be based out of northern Quebec. The study system involves islands in northern Quebec that differ in historical fire regime, and the postdoctoral researcher will explore how ecosystem properties in this system both aboveground and belowground respond to fire history in this system. There is the expectation that the researcher will be actively involved in the design, fieldwork, data analysis, and write-up of this work. This position would be particularly ideal for researchers that have an interest in the community and ecosystem ecology of northern ecosystems.

The required qualification for this position is a PhD in Ecology or a related subject, preferably with experience in field-based ecology, and preferably completed in the previous three years. We would also expect the researcher to have a reasonable level of physical fitness, and to have the capacity to travel to Quebec for fieldwork during the 2014 field season.

Applications for this position should include a curriculum vitae including a full list of publications, a brief description of research interests, and a list of at least two references familiar with the applicant's qualifications and experience.

Further information is available from Professor David Wardle SLU Umeå, Department of Forest Ecology and Management, e-mail:

Applications, marked with Ref No 5566/2013, must arrive at the Registrar of SLU, P.O. Box 7070, S- 750 07 Uppsala or no later than 10 January 2014.

Offre de stage de recherche

Three PhD scholarships are available within the research project “Deep lakes of Côte-Nord region: Exploring unique paleoenvironnemental archives” funded by the FRQNT and lead by professors Pierre Francus at INRS - Centre Eau Terre Environnement, Patrick Lajeunesse at Université Laval, and Guillaume Saint-Onge at ISMER - UQAR. The project’s main objective is to study the interannual climate variability by analyzing varved sediments, their architecture, and the glacial geomorphology of the watersheds of four deep lakes of the Côte-Nord region in Quebec. The specific objectives are: (1) to map the lakes’ basins at high-resolution using multibeam sonar, (2) to characterize the nature and the architecture of the sediments using surveys obtained with a subsurface profiler, (3) to obtain sediment cores, (4) to analyze physical properties and fine sedimentary structures, and (5) to analyze the paleomagnetic properties of the sediments in order to integrate the sedimentary sequences within a common chronostratigraphic framework. The three PhD projects will be carried out in collaboration at the INRS (limnology and fine sedimentary structures), at Université Laval (geomorphology and geophysics), and at ISMER (sedimentology and paleomagnetism). The candidates should have a university degree in Earth Sciences (physical geography, hydrology, geology, oceanography or a related discipline), be at ease with computers and fieldwork, and ideally have basic knowledge in paleoclimatology and/or limnology and/or sedimentology. Experience in fieldwork in the North will be considered an asset but is not essential. Working and teaching language in Quebec is French but English speaking students are also encourage to apply as the professors involved are also fluent in English. Three scholarships of ,000/year at least are available for 3 years. Scholarships are also available to pay for the increased tuition fees that apply to foreign students. Students having a scholarship or eligible to an NSERC or FRQNT scholarship will be given priority. The candidates will have to register in one of the three institutions (INRS, U. Laval, UQAR). The laboratories involved in this project are among the better equipped in Canada in their field. If interested, you are invited to contact one of the professors for further information. The application package should comprise a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, a university transcript, a list of practical and technical skills and the names of two references, and be sent to one of the addresses indicated below. The selection of the candidates will begin on August 1st and will continue until the positions are filled. The PhD projects will begin in the fall 2013 or the winter 2014 at the latest.
