Assistant Professor in Arctic Ecosystem Science

Umea, Sweden
The holder of the position will carry out research in the area of ecology or biogeochemistry of subarctic/arctic ecosystems. Research directed towards terrestrial and/or freshwater (streams, lakes) systems is welcome. It is valuable if the planned research can be linked to on-going research at CIRC. We are particularly interested in candidates who address climate impacts on ecological and biogeochemical patterns and processes at whole-ecosystem scale, across terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, or at catchment or higher levels. We welcome research approaches combining different types of field studies, e.g. using natural gradients or experimental manipulations, with modeling and up-scaling techniques.Posted: Tuesday 19 May 2015

Ecology and Sociobiology of a Wolf-Ungulate Predator-Prey Game

Memorial University of Newfoundland
Riding Mountain National Park (RMNP) in Manitoba is among the best-studied large mammal communities in Canada. Peer-reviewed research has been produced from the RMNP system for the last 80 years: from Green (1933) and Banfield (1949) to Paquet (1990s) and our recent work. RMNP is a rich system within which to simultaneously ask fundamental and applied ecological and evolutionary questions. Over the coming years and primarily using GPS collars, this project will see all wolf packs and >80% of the elk monitored in one of RMNP’s elk subpopulations, creating a near-perfect spatial and temporal picture of predatory-prey interactions between wolves and their primary prey. Furthermore, the successful applicant will have access to our considerable collection of historical individual- and population-level data on space use and population densities of elk, moose, white-tailed deer and wolves (see our papers for examples). As a result, this project will provide excellent opportunities for both academic and professional advancement. Because it is a PhD-level project, the successful applicant will be expected to develop her or his own ideas and research plan in collaboration with the research team. In the Wildlife Evolutionary Ecology Lab we feel strongly that novel biological ideas are derived from interacting directly with our study species and system, and the successful applicant will be expected to spend considerable amounts of time in the field, supported by an excellent team of biologists at RMNP. The successful applicant will be required to actively investigate kill- and den-sites and to fly telemetry, while simultaneously working with existing data. At the PhD level, this will require an exceptional applicant who can both be in the field and continue to actively analyze and write throughout their program.Posted: Friday 08 May 2015
