Prospective candidates are expected to hold a master’s degree in Environmental Sciences or related disciplines.
The Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics at Università Ca' Foscari Venezia invites applications for a post-doc fellowship in: Analysis of climate change effects on the structure and functioning of aquatic environments.
TITLE: Analysis of climate change effects on the structure and functioning of aquatic environments; SSD: 05C1; Tutor: Fabio Pranovi; Abstract: The research activity will be focalized on the climate change effects on the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems, both freshwater and coastal marine systems, with particular attention about the fishery activities in the Northern Adriatic Sea and the lake of Garda.
The post-doc will be required to:
Build up individual-based models to analyse the temperature effects of population dynamic in fish, such as the whitefish;
Apply food web models to assess possible effects of CC on the functioning of the two case studies, with reference to the available climate scenarios;
Support the stakeholders engagement activity, and the meeting preparation.
The research may be carried out in English. The fellowship is intended to provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to pursue his/her own research while benefiting from the range of expertise at Università Ca' Foscari Venezia.
