Postdoctoral position
Lichens and life history traits

The new Department of Ecology at SLU conducts research and education in applied ecology including effects of human activity and environmental change on biodiversity. We announce a new post doctoral position focusing on if life history traits explain the lichen species composition, if red-listed lichen species differ from other species in terms of life history traits and occurrence, and how a large scale outbreak of the Dutch elm disease on Gotland would affect lichens on Ulmus. A large data set on corticolous lichens from 23 wooded meadows on Gotland, Sweden and 3 similar localities on Saarema, Estonia is available. A total of more than 1,000 trees were sampled. You will add parameters such as life history traits, stand history (back to the 18th century) and phylogeny to the data set and then analyse the material with various statistical methods. Both the stand and the individual trees within a stand will be studied. This project will examine and compare lichen diversity on tree species in a man-made ecosystem with high biodiversity, maintained by management. The meadows have a long history of management by hay-cutting and maintenance of deciduous trees used for coppicing or pollarding. You will be part of a research group at the department working with lichens. No (or only limited) field work will be necessary. The position will be at Uppsala.

Qualifications: You should have a PhD in Biology (or equivalent). Experience in various methods of statistical analysis and scientific writing in English are necessary and an interest in lichens is an advantage. The application shall include: (1) a summary of your previous achievements (max. 1 page), (2) a description (max. 1 page) of how you regard the research task, (3) PhD thesis, (4) curriculum vitae and (5) two reference persons.
