Postdoctoral Position at Universitat de Girona, Girona, Catalunya

A postdoc position is available as part of the project AlienScenarios (Developing and applying scenarios of biological invasions for the 21st century), financed by the joint Belmont Forum-BiodivERsA framework on biodiversity scenarios and supervised by Dr. Nuria Roura-Pascual in collaboration with national and international teams. The candidate will be employed at the University of Girona and be part of the Animal Biology research group.

Research topic. The overarching aim of this research is to provide a decision support system for examining the future management of biological invasions in Europe. We will develop qualitative scenarios for biological invasions at the EU level using scenario planning analyses, and then combine these future scenarios with a spatially-explicit model of human vector movement simulating the dispersal of alien species to assess the consequences of different levels of implementation of the EU regulation on invasive alien species. This postdoc will develop the vector-based model and conduct the simulations to assess the effects of the different scenarios. The model will be developed in collaboration with Dr. Brian Leung (McGill University, Canada).

Required and preferred qualifications. We are looking for a highly motivated and independent scientist interested in ecological modelling and GIS technologies. Applicants should have a strong background in spatial analysis and statistics using R. Experience in one or more of the following areas/techniques is advantageous: big data management, spatial spread models, species distribution models, invasion ecology, landscape ecology. Proficiency in spoken and written English and a good publication record are mandatory.

Duration: 24 months.

Job start is early 2020.

Mode of application. To apply, please send an email to Nuria Roura-Pascual (nuria.rourapascual@udg.edu)
- a short letter of motivation
- a detailed CV (including previous employments and publication list)
- reprints of your two most important published articles
- contact details of at least two references (letters of recommendation are optional).

Application deadline is 7 July 2019.

Please contact: Nuria Roura-Pascual

Research Fellow at University of Leeds, England

We are looking for a Research Fellow in Mathematical and Statistical Models of intra-cellular viral dynamics to join our project on the estimation of a human dose range for VH244 for the prevention and treatment of respiratory infections. You will work together with teams at the University of Leeds and Virion Biotherapeutics (VB) to mathematically, statistically and computationally characterise the dynamics of respiratory virus infection and a therapeutic interfering particle (TIP), making use of experimental data.

You will have a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Physics or a closely allied discipline. You will also have a strong background in mathematical biology, multi-scale modelling, agent-based modelling, and statistical inference and multi-variate analysis; as well as in theoretical immunology and infection, and mathematical, statistical and computational modelling of immune responses. In addition, you will have the ability to conduct independent research and a developing track record of publications in international journals, alongside excellent communication, planning and team working skills.

Three-year full-time PhD position at Paris, France

Three-year PhD position on modeling the evolution of human cooperation in the context of climate change and climate extremes.

Full-time, fully funded position based in Paris, France. Starting October 1, 2019.

Project summary: Promoting human cooperation towards public goods is particularly challenging, and quantitative theory is scarce. We propose to develop general models for the joint evolutionary dynamics of cooperation and social norms, and apply these models to the problem of cooperation in response to anthropogenic climate change. Of particular interest is the effect of environmental fluctuations, including extreme climatic events, with the goal of predicting their effects across scales of time, space, and social structure. This interdisciplinary project will advance the mathematical framework of cultural evolution and human cooperation, and yield novel insights into the emergence and dynamics of 'cultures of cooperation' in the face of global environmental challenges.

Key words: Human cooperation. Cultural evolution. Non-vertical transmission. Transmission bias. Variable environment. Environmental extremes. Climate change. Game theory. Adaptive dynamics. Mathematical modeling. Nonlinear stochastic processes. Macroscopic limits.

Advising: The doctoral student will be co-advised by Regis Ferriere (IBENS Paris and CNRS-ENS/PSL UMI iGLOBES at the University of Arizona), Sylvie Meleard (Centre de Mathematiques Appliquees, Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau), Jean-Baptiste Andre (Institut Jean Nicod du Departement d'Etudes Cognitives de l'ENS Paris) and Sylvain Billiard (Laboratoire Evo-Eco-Paleo de l'Universite de Lille). The graduate program and primary advisor will be determined according to the student's main areas of training and long-term objectives. The student will be based in Paris, France, with an official affiliation with CNRS-ENS/PSL UMI iGLOBES at the University of Arizona where s/he will be given the opportunity to work for extended time.

Required qualification: We are looking for highly motivated applicants with a strong interest in mathematical and numerical modeling of population dynamics. Applicants' background may be in behavior, cognition, ecology, and/or evolution with strong experience in theory and modeling; or in applied mathematics (stochastic processes, game theory, dynamical systems...), theoretical physics or computational science with strong experience or motivation for applications to behavior, ecology, and evolution.

Applying: Applicants should have completed a Master degree or equivalent by the position start date. Applications should include a detailed CV (including name and contact information of two references) and a cover letter (statement of interest). Applications should be sent to Regis Ferriere at regis.ferriere@ens.fr .
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled.
