Post-doc openings: Three new positions for “catalyst” researchers in biodiversity
The Synthesis Centre for Biodiversity Sciences (sDiv) is looking for thee “catalyst” post-docs to be based in Leipzig, Germany. The positions will begin January 2017 and last for two years. sDiv is a unit of the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig, which seeks to “to promote theory-driven synthesis and data-driven theory in biodiversity sciences and to provide the scientific foundations for the sustainable management of biodiversity.”
According to the announcement:
The sDiv catalyst postdoc programme is specifically designed to foster and facilitate the integration and thus collaboration among iDiv members and iDiv core professors. Applicants should address novel questions or examine known problems from an innovative synthesis perspective. All synthesis topics in biodiversity research are welcome, ranging from biology to social or computer sciences.
Interested post-docs do not need to be affiliated with iDiv currently to apply for these openings. However, applicants must either initiate or be a part of a “catalyst proposal” that includes one iDiv member and core professor. The deadline for applications is 7 October.
