1 PhD student in the research education subject: Ecology

The importance of ecological linkages between aquatic and terrestrial organisms for the stability and resilience of headwater streams

Applications are encouraged for a 4-year PhD position focusing on the ecology of boreal headwater streams. Because of their small size and intimate connections with surrounding landscape, headwater streams are easily influenced by human activities in catchments and riparian zones. The doctoral student's research will seek to better understand the importance of ecological linkages between aquatic and terrestrial organisms for the stability and resilience of stream ecosystems. Special focus will be on structural and functional relationships between biota and water chemistry and how climate change may alter these relations.

Qualifications: An undergraduate degree in biology/limnology or other relevant subjects. Good writing skills and knowledge of stream ecology and entomology is meriting. Projected studies include both the analyses of long-term data and experimental field work. Written applications should include a CV, copies of exams and other relevant supplements, personal references, and a copy of your MSc. thesis.

Form for funding or employment: 1st year grant (utbildningsbidrag) and 20% employment, 2nd-4th year full employment (doktorandtjänst)
