6844| University of Canterbury, Geospatial Research Institute| Postdoctoral Fellow - Large-scale control of invasive predators| • Full-time (37.5 hours per week)
• 3 year fixed-term position

The Geospatial Research Institute, in partnership with Te Punaha Matatini, seeks a postdoctoral research fellow to work on socio-ecological models of large-scale predator control. The New Zealand government recently announced the ambitious goal of completely eradicating exotic predators by 2050. To achieve this goal will require a massive coordinated effort across the country's publicly and privately owned land areas. Key stakeholders in this effort include the Department of Conservation, regional councils, NGOs and private landowners. The current "Cape-to-City" (C2C) predator control programme in Hawkes Bay and its potential extension across four regions in the lower North Island are the first steps towards predator-free New Zealand.

The aim of this research project is to use socio-ecological models to assess the feasibility of scaling-up predator control outside traditional conservation areas and to inform decisions about resource allocation. These models will be combine ecological population dynamics models with geospatial information on land ownership and data on landowner attitudes to participation in pest control programmes.

As the successful candidate, you will be based in the Geospatial Research Institute at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, and will also be part of Te Punaha Matatini via its early career researcher network. You will have a PhD in mathematics, statistics or related subject, as well as advanced skills in Geospatial Sciences, excellent communication skills and experience in collaborating with researchers from different disciplines. A formal background in biology or sociology is not necessary, but an interest in these subjects is essential.

6842| Earlham Institute| Postdoctoral Scientist| To adapt to desert, mammals developed different phenotypes to cope with the lack of water or food paucity associated to such environment. For example, some rodents have evolved to increase the water retention capacities of their kidneys, others show a decrease of the general metabolism activity helping to cope with food shortage and high temperature often associated to such environment. Despite the different studies at the physiologic level, little is known about the molecular and evolutionary mechanism of adaptation to desert environment. We are undertaking a large population genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis to identify the genes and regulatory networks underpinning these traits in multiple rodent species.

We are currently seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated Postdoctoral Scientist that will combine comparative and population genomic approaches to study the evolutionary and molecular mechanisms of mammalian adaption to desert. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing computational methods and analysing primary genomic resources, in order to identify and study genomics signatures of environmental adaptation. The post holder will work in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. The successful applicant will interact with other group members and external collaborators such as the Sanger Institute or the European Bioinformatics Institute, and with peoples coming from a variety of backgrounds, to include; Experimental Biologists, Field Ecologists and Computational Biologists.

To be considered for this post you will hold a PhD in Evolutionary Biology, Population Genomic or Computational biology. You already have experience with genomic data analysis (genomics/Transcriptomics/epigenomics) in population genomics, molecular evolution or gene expression regulation. The successful candidate will also have extensive knowledge in R and other script languages such as Perl or Python, be autonomous, organised and collaborative and also possess strong problem solving skills.
