Geology Department, University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio, USA

We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position to study landslide and glacier based geohazards in High Mountain Asia.  A successful candidate is expected to study and model the dynamics of these high mountain glacial and hydrology based hazards using remote sensing datasets (optical/radar/ICESat) and develop tools for integrating remote sensing data and model outputs. This position provides an opportunity to grow your skillset and also allows you to bring new skills and unique methods to study the impact of climate change on this region. Expertise in machine learning techniques and coding experience is not required but strongly preferred. The appointment will be for 1 year, with continuation pending funding and progress. The position is eligible for benefits. 

Position open until filled.

Institute of Environmental Geosciences (IGE), Grenoble University Campus, France

This postdoctoral position will focus on the spatial prioritization of areas for conservation in Peru. As part of the Global Deal for Nature, the goal is to increase the coverage of terrestrial protected areas in Peru to 30% of its territory. The prioritization was designed as a socio-ecological approach, and to integrate indicators of biodiversity, carbon sequestration and water supply and demand. The applicant will produce maps of priority areas for conservation to complement the current system of protected areas in Peru. The results will be discussed in an iterative process with several project partners, including the Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM), scientific institutions attached to MINAM, and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).

Fixed-term contract for one year starting 1 November 2022.

Ecological and Environmental Change Research Group, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Bergen, Norway

The candidate will conduct analyses on observed biodiversity in alpine biomes across different scales, taxonomic groups, and biodiversity metrics. A key task is the collection, harmonization, and assessment of large biodiversity datasets from different sources, and the integration of data from different biological, climatical, and geological fields obtained from mountains worldwide. The candidate will analyse the legacy effect of potential drivers of present-day alpine biodiversity, associated to Quaternary climate fluctuations, and biogeographical and geological processes.

Interviews will be held in the beginning of October 2022.
