Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) invites applications for a Senior Scientist position in “Biostatistics and Ecological Modelling” (100%)
The position will be initially restricted to 3 years, with a possible extension for an additional 3 years and an option for a permanent contract after that (tenure track).
Candidates are expected to conduct collaborative research in biodiversity/biological statistics and/or modelling and to contribute statistical expertise and analyses to a variety of ongoing or planned projects concerning the analysis of patterns and dynamics of biodiversity, from population genetics to the ecosystem level. Candidates should also be willing to provide basic statistical services. Candidates must have an interest to work in interdisciplinary teams, including colleagues from diverse fields, such as evolutionary ecology, biogeography and geology, as well as from social sciences. It would also be an advantage to be familiar with datasets concerning environmental drivers of biodiversity change, such as climate data and remote sensing data describing land use changes or ecosystem structure and functioning.
Please send your application by January, 31th 2016.
