For the Department of Ecosystem Research of IGB at the location Berlin-Adlershof we are inviting applications for the position of a doctoral researcher starting as of 01.03.2021 or when the position is filled.
Become part of the research group Aquatic Ecogeography – we are an international team investigating the impacts of global change on freshwater (particularly riverine) ecosystems. We combine hydrology, community ecology, conservation biology, ecological & habitat modelling, and biogeography approaches. The position will be embedded in the Collaborative Research Center 1439 RESIST (“Multilevel response to stressor increase and release in stream ecosystems”) which has been recommended for funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG). This project will develop species distribution models (SDMs) for selected diatom, invertebrate and fish species. It aims to advance previous species distribution modelling approaches by the involvement i) of stressor interactions, ii) life cycle related habitat use, and iii) asymmetric recovery patterns and to eventually integrate these into a model considering critical timing and importance of environmental conditions during different life stages and during phases of degradation and recovery.
