Main Purpose of the Post
The AMBER PDRA will be expected to:
A 1-year postdoctoral position is available at CSAR (Centre for Sustainable Aquatic Research) in the Department of Biosciences at Swansea University as part of the AMBER project, which aims to provide a better understanding of the causes and consequences of stream fragmentation.
Rivers rank among some of the most threatened ecosystems in the world and are the focus of restoration programmes in Europe and elsewhere that cost billions to taxpayers, and improving stream connectivity has been flagged as one of the priorities for more efficient stream restoration. This is one of two postdocs who will work as part of the EU-funded AMBER consortium (‘Adaptive Management of Barriers in European Rivers’). The overarching goal of these positions is to develop better and more meaningful metrics of stream fragmentation and to apply them to European-wide datasets to quantify and predict current and future impacts of barriers on local stream biodiversity for a variety of taxa and across multiple spatial and temporal scales.
The project will develop novel molecular and ecological metrics of stream fragmentation. It is based on the Singleton Campus within Biological Sciences (College of Science).
