|Description:|| The PhD student will investigate the potential of adaptive evolution to affect the response of phytoplankton communities to a warmer and more stratified ocean due to climate change. He/she will use modelling techniques that are commonly used in physics (moment closure approximations, reaction-diffusion) to solve eco-evolutionary dynamics of planktonic organisms moving along "fitness landscapes" (i.e. relationship between genotypes and reproductive success). To be eligible for the role, candidates must possess a PhD in oceanography, theoretical biology or a related discipline, alongside competent computer skills and a creative and independent thinking mindset.
The Research Associate will be in charge of the numerical aspects of the global ocean model, as well as the theoretical aspects of implementing trait-diffusion as a way to model eco-evolutionary dynamics of planktonic organisms. To be eligible, candidates must have an Msc in mathematics, computer science, oceanography or a related discipline, while also possessing strong, advanced computer skills in a variety of programmes.
Both positions have no deadline, remaining open from 10 January until filled.
