Job openings

  • Come work with us! We are looking for a head engineer (Overingeniør) who will work on a variety of our project-based research activities. Ongoing projects related to this position are all based at the Ecological and Environmental Change Research Group at the University of Bergen. Currently projects include TradMod, QUEST-UV, Cultivate, RangeX, Durin, BIOSPHERE and Incline. As head engineer, you will be involved in ecological field and lab work, data management, science communication, and project management. The position is now announced on JobbNorge, deadline 2. March 2022.

  • We seek a postdoc in the FUNDER project, which will assess and disentangle the direct effects of climate from the indirect effects, mediated through biotic interactions, on the diversity and whole-ecosystem functioning of the plant−soil food web. To achieve this, we use a powerful macroecological experimental approach to quantify the impacts of vegetation diversity on interactions and ecosystem functioning across factorial broad-scale temperature and precipitation gradients. The successful candidate will focus on the role of soil microorganisms (mainly bacteria and fungi) in ecosystem responses and feedbacks to climate. The work will be based around data from climate and plant functional group manipulations in a distributed field experiment, conducted with other project participants. To apply, visit the jobbnorge website. Application deadline is 22nd of January 2022.
