Postdoc (tenure track) position in Pollination and chemical ecology (f/m/d)
Published(105 days ago)
Deadline for applications(90 days ago)
Paris Lodron University of SalzburgSalzburg (Österreich)
The working group Plant Ecology of the University of Salzburg (Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stefan Dötterl) studies the ecology and evolution of pollination systems, with a focus on the communication between flowers and their pollinators. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments for the analysis of volatile organic substances as well as for the identification of electrophysiologically (electroantennography) and behaviorally active substances in insects. The working group is embedded in the Department of Biosciences; here, numerous potential cooperations with other working groups are possible and would be appreciated.
Postdoc (tenure track) position in Pollination and chemical ecology
The research focus of the position will be in ecology and evolution of flower-animal interactions and considers signaling patterns in such systems. The study of applied aspects, such as crop pollination and pest control of fruit crops is highly appreciated.
The successful applicant should have an excellent research experience and publication record, and experience with teaching and grant acquisition. Good knowledge of one or several of the following methods is of advantage: analytical chemistry (GC, GC-MS) electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD), behavioral assays, molecular analyses (e.g. scent genes), chemical synthesis, statistics.
The successful candidate, who has a PhD, preferably in biology, will teach courses in botany and ecology (in German and English; 4 hrs per week and semester; Bachelor studies in Biology; Master studies in Ecology and Evolution; Teacher studies in Biology and Environmental Sciences), and supervise undergraduate as well as graduate students. She/he is expected to apply for external funding. Proficiency in English is essential.
