I am looking for an enthusiastic (postdoc) researcher that is interested in spatial ecology, global change biology and/or conservation biogeography. The position is funded by the EVAHUNT project, and will last 18-24 months depending on the candidate level. In this project, the hired researcher will work on a pantropical assessment of vulnerability of tropical vertebrates to hunting pressure that can be used for spatial prioritization. The researcher will apply a range of modelling techniques to:

  • Develop a pantropical map of exposure to hunting pressure.
  • Assess the vulnerability of tropical mammal and avian assemblages to hunting pressure.
  • Establish areas for conservation priority based on vulnerability scores.

If you are interested, please contact me before the end of March (deadline 22th March). More details about the offer here.
