PostDoc in the ecology of plant-animal interactions (80-100%)

The research unit Biodiversity and Conservation Biology studies the diversity of life in its various forms, from genetic diversity to the diversity of species and ecosystems as well as their interactions. This unit hosts the group Spatial Evolutionary Ecology where the candidate (f/m/d) will be located. In the frame of an ERC-supported project on plant-hummingbird interactions, we are searching for a 2 year, starting between August and October 2022
You will analyze hummingbird-plant interaction data gathered over the last two to six years across elevational gradients in Ecuador, Costa Rica and Brazil. You will determine what factors influence variation in interaction strength and network structure across space and time and you will publish the results in international scientific journals and present them at dedicated conferences.
You have acquired a PhD in biology or environmental sciences, with a strong background in community ecology, network ecology, data management and statistical analyses. You are very ambitious and motivated, are used to a high standard of independent, structured and careful working attitude, and demonstrate a high level of team spirit.

Please submit your complete application online to, Michèle Bucher, Human Resources WSL by uploading the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.
