PhD student position in limnology/trophic interactions
This PhD position is aimed at improving our understanding of the spatial aspects of food web interactions in aquatic ecosystems. Top predators have the ability as mobile consumers to integrate spatially separated food webs and movement across habitats of these predators is key to understand how spatially separated food webs can be coupled. The student will test the importance of ecological factors and evolutionary traits constraining movements and foraging abilities of predators. We use mainly Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis) as our model species and the student will conduct a mixture of small scale aquarium studies, mesocosm experiments and field studies.
The candidate will receive her/his postgraduate training within the postgraduate school at the Evolutionary Biology Centre (http://www.ebc.uu.se/?languageId=1). The school offers a creative and stimulating environment and is very rich in seminars, courses and possibilities to interact with other scholars and students (http://www.ebc.uu.se/education/?languageId=1).
For further information regarding the position, please contact Peter Eklöv (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone: +46 18 471 2720).
You are welcome to submit your application no later than August 1, 2012, UFV-PA 2012/1553. For more information and how to apply please use the following link.
