Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre
Subject area:
Food selection by large free-ranging herbivores shapes the distribution of both plants and animals across natural and production ecosystems. To effectively manage these systems requires an understanding of how interactions between plants and herbivores influence natural resources and vice versa. In Sweden, the consequence of such interactions is of high societal interest. The Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre therefore announces a Senior Lecturer position in forest ecology focusing on plant-herbivore interactions. The complexity of the southern Swedish situation requires a breadth of expertise, as the region supports multiple mammalian herbivore species, high human population densities, extensive production forests and substantial browsing-related concerns. We are searching for an outstanding candidate with a demonstrated ability to work with these issues across the contexts of silviculture, biodiversity conservation, nutritional ecology, veterinary science and the social sciences. The successful candidate will combine cutting edge science with excellent abilities to disseminate results to stakeholders.

We expect the successful candidate to actively develop the research field at the department in the future and be in frequent dialogue with stakeholders. The candidate should define and develop her/his own research direction, and carry out interdisciplinary work with existing research groups at the department and with other departments, universities, governmental organizations, and the forest industry. The candidate will teach at advanced level within her/his research field and play an active role in course development at the department. The position includes the supervision of MSc and PhD students.
