Llamado a concurso de postdoctorado / Bentos

El Centro de Investigación Dinámica de Ecosistemas Marinos de Altas Latitudes (IDEAL) llama a concurso para proveer el cargo de Postdoctorado, para investigar los efectos del cambio climático en el funcionamiento de los ecosistemas bentónicos antárticos y subantárticos. Cierre: 11 de noviembre de 2016.

Call for Application

Post-Doctoral Position at FONDAP Research Center Dynamic of High Latitude Marine Ecosystems (IDEAL)

One postdoctoral researcher position is available for highly motivated candidates in the frame of a CONICYT-funded FONDAP Research Center Dynamic of High Latitude Marine Ecosystems (IDEAL, www.centroideal.cl) focused on the Research Program 4 (Structure and Function of Benthos) activities. Our long-term goal is to translate the results of observational and experimental studies into a holistic model of climate-change effects on the functioning of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic benthic ecosystems.

The successful candidate should have an outstanding publication record in peer-reviewed journals and a PhD in one of the following subjects:

  • Benthic ecology
  • Aquatic Ecology and environmental stress
  • Experimental ecology
  • Trophic ecology

We seek a creative and proactive candidate who will join an interactive multidisciplinary team of scientists in an academic environment. Laboratory and field oriented experience, including data processing and mathematical skills, is highly desirable. Diving experience in polar regions is desirable, but not mandatory.

The 2-year position will be based at the city of Punta Arenas, Chile, and includes approximately 1-2 month stays in the Antarctica during two consecutive summers.

Salary: $19.200.000.- Chilean Pesos before taxes, per year (approximately, US$ 30,000/25.500 Euro).

To apply, please send a motivation letter including research interests, current curriculum vitae, as well as names and coordinates of three references to Dr. Iván Gómez Ocampo.

This call will be open until November 11th and it will be sanctioned within approximately a month. After informed, the candidate is expected to start as soon as possible, and in March 2017 at the most.

Interested persons, please send the following documents to claudia.carcamo@uach.cl indicating in the message “Application to RP4-IDEAL postdoctoral position”:

  • Letter of interest (max. 3 p)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Summary of his/her doctoral research (max. 5 p)
  • Brief research proposal for this particular call (max. 3 p)
  • Three recommendation letters

Virtual or in person interviews will be held with preselected candidates.

Llamado a concurso de post doctorado / Sistema Socio-Ecológico

El Centro de Investigación Dinámica de Ecosistemas Marinos de Altas Latitudes (IDEAL) llama a concurso para proveer el cargo de Post Doctorado, para desarrollar investigación sobre evaluación y modelación de sistemas socio-ecológicos costeros y marinos. Cierre: 11 de noviembre de 2016.


CALL FOR POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

FONDAP Research Center Dynamics of High-Latitude Marine Ecosystems (IDEAL) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in possession of a doctoral degree obtained within the past 5 years, to start his/her research between December of 2016 and March of 2017 (at the most), and for a two-year period.

The Center comprises five Research Programs (RPs):

RP1 Marine productivity in a changing ocean

RP2 Physiological capabilities of marine species: A comparative eco-physiological and genetics approach

RP3 Comparative structure and function of plankton

RP4 Comparative structure and function of benthos

RP5 Coastal and marine socio-ecological systems (CMSES), ecosystem services, and human well-being.

To carry on these RPs, IDEAL gathers 23 researchers from Austral University, Concepción University and Center of Quaternary Studies (CEQUA-Punta Arenas), from marine and social related sciences, who develop collaborative and interdisciplinary research focused on CMSES of the Antarctic and Sub Antarctic regions of Chile. This includes the study of the effect of specific human internal pressures (e.g. aquaculture expansion) and global biophysical drivers (e.g. Increase in ocean temperature), the dynamics of ecological functions and processes that keep primary productivity and key species under such pressures, the provision of ecosystem services and their link to human livelihood strategies, and CMSES vulnerabilities.

IDEAL looks for candidates , which will be mainly, but not exclusively, inserted in RP5.

Currently, RP5 aims at the interdisciplinary work within the program itself and with the other Center’s RPs, comprising disciplines from the social and natural sciences, coupled with GIS technical expertise.

Broad specific research topics within RP5 include: marine and coastal governance, livelihoods strategies and trajectories, fisheries and ecosystem services mapping, and ecosystem services valuation.

IDEAL invites researches from different disciplines of the natural, social and or engineering sciences to apply, as long as the candidate demonstrates experience in coupled ecological-social systems evaluation and modeling and interdisciplinary work. A high level of knowledge of English and Spanish is also a requirement (spoken and written).

Postdoctoral Researcher

It is expected that the candidate lead: the collaborative construction of conceptual CMSES models based on the biophysical and social information gathered during 2016; the modeling itself; and the preparation of publications derived from his/her work.

For these tasks, it is desirable that the candidate demonstrates interdisciplinary work experience and specific training in complex systems modelling (e.g. agent based models). Additional, and alike all researchers of the Center, the candidate is expected to engage in specific outreach activities (e.g. school scientific fairs).  The postdoctoral position will last two years, with the second year being depending upon the candidates’ performance during the first year, which will be evaluated by the RP5 researchers and the principal investigators of the Center. The annual salary is about US$ 30,000. The candidate will reside in Punta Arenas, Magallanes region (IDEAL’s main headquarters) with ample availability to travel to and stay in Valdivia as well.

This call will be open until November 11th and it will be sanctioned within approximately a month. After informed, the candidate is expected to start as soon as possible, and in March 2017 at the most.

Interested persons, please send the following documents to claudia.carcamo@uach.cl indicating in the message “Application to RP5-IDEAL postdoctoral position”:

  • Letter of interest (max. 3 p)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Summary of his/her doctoral research (max. 5 p)
  • Brief research proposal for this particular call (max. 3 p)
  • Three recommendation letters

Virtual or in person interviews will be held with preselected candidates.
