New PhD position open in GEco
GEco announces a four-year PhD fellowship in distribution modelling of ecodiversity, associated with the ECoMAP project. The ECoMAP consortium is led by the University of Bergen and involves many institutions, e.g. the Norwegian Institute of Nature Research (NINA) and the Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre (ADB). The stated aim of the ECoMAP project is to ‘model Ecological state and provide COndition Maps to support knowledge-based decision-making in Area management and spatial Planning’. The ECoMAP project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council for the period 2021–24. The GEco group is responsible for ECoMAP work package 3, which aims at developing methodologies for generating map layers of ecodiversity variables – ecosystem types as well as important attributes defined in the Nature in Norway (NiN) system such as regrowth successional state of agricultural land.
Towards this aim, we seek a PhD candidate to work with distribution modelling of ecodiversity. The PhD candidate will co-operate closely with an ECoMAP post.doc., affiliated with the University of Bergen.
