[THESE POSITIONS HAVE NOW BEEN FILLED…]
We are seeking two talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellows to join our group. The “Research Fellow in Plant Functional Ecology” will investigate the interplay of key ecophysiological traits and biomass allometry in together determining growth outcomes, across seedlings, saplings and adult plants. The project includes a substantial field component. The “Research Fellow in in Data Analysis and Modelling” (joint-appointment with Prof. Colin Prentice, Biosphere and Climate Dynamics group) will focus on data compilation and statistical and graphical analysis of global plant trait datasets, as part of the ARC Discovery Project “Next-generation vegetation model based on functional traits” (CIs: Colin Prentice, Ian Wright).
Both positions are up to 2 years fixed-term with an attractive salary package, and will present opportunities to collaborate widely, both nationally and internationally. Closing date for applications is June 10th. Further information can be found at: http://bio.mq.edu.au/~iwright/postdocinfo.htm
