Candidates should have preferably a background in marine ecology and/or molecular ecology, although other closely related backgrounds may be considered. Experience in sampling design and fieldwork, and in molecular analyses and bioinformatics are highly valued. Candidates must also be fluent in English.
The fellow will be hosted by the CBMA, a research unit graded Excellent (FCT 2014), located at the Department of Biology, University of Minho. We offer the opportunity to engage in a cutting-edge multidisciplinary project and to work in the new research institute IB-S (Institute for Science and Innovation for Bio-sustainability). The project will also provide opportunities for international partnerships, and will involve travelling within the country and abroad.
