2. PhD Position in river biodiversity management 

Summary of PhD Positions:

IRTA is currently seeking an enthusiastic and motivated PhD candidate to join the Marine and Continental Waters Program. We invite applications from ambitious candidates with relevant research experience and passion to conduct research and innovation activities on the PhD project “Applied metacommunity perspectives for river biodiversity management”. The goal of this PhD project is to provide new insights for the adequate conservation and management of rivers in a context of global change.

To do so, we will use novel measurements of biodiversity change that consider spatiotemporal variability and apply conservation planning tools to obtain conservation and restoration opportunities that promote climate change adaptation. Specifically, we will: (1) analyse spatiotemporal trends of biological communities (catchment scale) and determine the drivers of these changes.; (2) study metacommunity dynamics (sub-catchment scale) and translate it into practical management practices.; and (3) apply a systematic conservation planning approach. The project will involve knowledge and outputs transfer to different relevant stakeholders, such as NGOs, water agencies, and the general public.
