PhD student

The position The PhD student will investigate the potential of adaptive evolution to affect the response of phytoplankton communities to a warmer and more stratified ocean due to contemporary climate change. He/she will use modelling techniques that are commonly used in physics (moment closure approximations, reaction-diffusion) to solve eco-evolutionary dynamics of planktonic organisms moving along "fitness landscapes" (i.e. relationship between genotypes and reproductive success)
The lab Spanish Institute of Oceanography @ Gijon (IEO -- CSIC)

Summary The Spanish Institute of Oceanography @ Gijon (IEO -- CSIC) is looking for candidates to fill two job offers (1 PhD, 1 postdoc) in computational ecology of marine ecosystems. The open positions are within the frame of a research project GOMMA, funded by the Spanish National Science Foundation. The project GOMMA seeks to simulate plankton ecological evolution (Eco-Evo) for the global ocean using the adaptive dynamics framework of trait-diffusion. Further details of the project GOMMA can be found here ( GOMMA )

Postdoctoral Fellowship

The position The postdoc researcher will be in charge of i) the numerical aspects of the global ocean model (MITgcm + darwin) and ii) the theoretical aspects of evaluating trait-diffusion (TD) as a way to model eco-evolutionary dynamics of planktonic organisms moving along fitness landscapes on three environmental axes: nutrient concentration, water temperature, solar irradiance.
