2-years postdoctoral position in species distribution modeling at NINA; deadline 1 February 2019


Dear all,


Just want to inform you that there is a vacant GIS-related position at NINA in Trondheim.


NINA is seeking applicants for a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship to join a research consortium for species distribution modeling of birds in northern Europe. The Future Bird Scenarios project is scheduled to begin in 2019 with new funding from the BiodivERsA-Belmont Forum.


Please see: https://www.nina.no/Aktuelt/Nyhetsartikkel/ArticleId/4664/Postdoctoral-position-in-species-distribution-modeling for more detailed information.


Essential qualifications for all applicants will include:

1) A PhD degree in quantitative ecology, statistics, or a related discipline;

2) Evidence of research productivity, with publications in the peer-reviewed literature; and

3) Good communication skills, including successful research grants and oral presentations at scientific conferences.


Applicants must be fluent in English. Language skills in Norwegian or one of the other Scandinavian languages are not required but will be considered an asset.


Desired qualifications will include technical skills in one or more of the following areas:

1) Ornithology, with a foundation of knowledge in the ecology of migratory birds;

2) Quantitative ecology, with experience in computer programming, hierarchical models in a Bayesian framework, and testing for ecological predictors of organismal responses;

3) Data science, with experience in working with species distribution modeling or with large complex datasets; and

4) Geographic sciences, with experience at acquiring and compiling geographic data and GIS layers from different sources.


Would be glad to see strong applicants from the OSGeo community. Please feel free to spread the word!


Kind regards,
