(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:     Post-doctoral fellow in hybridization induced genetic architecture

We are recruiting a post-doctoral fellow for 2 years to the ERC-funded project “Hybridization derived novel patterns of gene expression”. This project addresses the role of gene expression in how adaptive variation can arise from hybridization. Two specific questions that will be addressed are 1) to which extent alterations to genomic architecture, including indels and inversions contributes to altered gene expression in a hybrid taxon, the Italian sparrow Passer italiae in comparison to its parental species. 2) the role of altered methylation in altered patterns of gene expression in the hybrid Italian sparrow. To understand which patterns are general, four independent lineages of hybrid Italian sparrows on different Mediterranean islands will be used as a study system. Extraction of long read DNA and de novo assembly of top quality reference genomes from long read data for all these hybrid lineages and annotation will be crucial for achiving these research goals. The post doctoral fellow will perform gene expression analyses, help inform study design and contribute to field work, synthesize and write up the work for publication and work with the HybridExpress team consisting of a lab manager, a PhD-student and a researcher. There will be opportunities for mentorship. The project is led by Associate Senior Lecturer Anna Runemark, and set within the SPeciation, Adaptation and Co-Evolution lab in the biodiversity unit.

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc summary/title:  Post-doctoral fellow in bacterial mutagenesis and genetics

Every ecosystem on our planet is composed of a complex community of organisms. The function of these ecosystems is often dependent on interactions – or symbioses – between community members. In the microbial world, symbiotic interactions based on syntrophy (i.e., a type of mutualistic symbiosis where nutrients are exchanged between organisms to allow for metabolic division of labour) are common, especially between prokaryotic organisms in anoxic environments. Such interactions are essential drivers of biogeochemical processes like global carbon, nitrogen, and sulphur cycling. Whether similar roles can be attributed to single-cell eukaryotes (protists) occupying these environments remains unclear owing in large part to our limited understanding of the biology, syntrophic potential, and metabolism of anaerobic eukaryotes.

(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:    Postdoctoral fellow in the history of religions

In East Asia, the importance of moral education reflects in the civil service examination system of Imperial China and surfaces in contemporary school subjects that cover citizenship and moral orientation. Recently established subjects such as “Life Education” offer students the opportunity to reflect and address issues related to their personal life orientation and provide religious groups with new opportunities for engagement. Yet this is not novel: Religious agents across East Asia, in particular Christians and Buddhists, have been and remain engaged in realizing, assisting, and influencing public education.

(11) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:    Post-doctoral fellow in microbial ecology

Soils store much more carbon (C) than the atmosphere and the living biosphere together, and microorganisms play an important role to govern whether C compounds remain in the soil, or whether they are disintegrated back to CO2. An important mechanism of long-term C storage is the physical stabilization of organic matter within the soil structure, meaning that C can be “hidden” from its decomposers in the complex matrix of soil aggregates, but the processes involved are not well understood.

(13) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:    Postdoctoral Fellow in the conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services
 

Heatwaves induced by climate change constitute an increasing threat to insect communities. Yet, conservation efforts to mitigate the impact of heatwaves on biodiversity and related ecosystem services are still sparse. This project aims to evaluate the potential of modifying microclimates with trees and shrubs as an ecosystem-based climate adaptation to increase the resilience of wild bee communities and crop pollination to heatwaves. As a result, the proposed project will contribute to the development of ecosystem-based climate adaptation actions that enable more climate-change resilient agriculture, society and nature, as well as policies that facilitate their implementation.

(18) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:    Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Science

A climate mitigation and adaptation strategy applicable for Sweden is rewetting of drained peatlands, which can both aid in mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and create a landscape with higher biodiversity being more resilient to drought/flooding and forest fires. The main aim with this project is to improve our understanding of the impact this climate adaptation and mitigation strategy has on the activity of soil microbial communities, and in turn their influence on the land atmosphere exchange of GHG. The applicant should have experience in peatland microbial ecology, GHG fluxes and field experiments. An important component is the application of metatranscriptomics used to observe microbial activity via the expressed transcripts of genes in response to re-wetting to capture community functional activity. We will apply the metatranscriptomics approach in an attempt to link microbial activity to observed GHG fluxes on a temporal scale. These measurements will be linked to measurements of land atmosphere exchange of greenhouse gases. More specifically, we aim at increasing our understanding of (i) which functional groups in the soil microbial community become active/dormant following rewetting and (ii) how does the activity of these functional groups affect the net exchange of greenhouse gases.

(19) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:    Post-doctoral fellow in environmental science

New pathways are needed for an efficient alignment of the financial system with the needs of biodiversity. This postdoc links efforts of the research project BIOPATH with aim to assess, co-develop and test existing and novel approaches for integration of biodiversity considerations into financial decision-making with financial actors, and analyse the institutional and policy implications of potential transition pathways. The postdoc will focus on how to develop and adapt life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology to assess biodiversity consequences of alternative use of food, forest products and bioenergy. This requires, in parallel, development of more robust quantitative biodiversity threshold values which can be integrated in financial decision-making by enhanced LCA approaches, similar to the inclusion of quantitative carbon footprint values today. To this end, existing LCA methodologies and biodiversity impact models will be used to develop new and innovative approaches able to integrate biodiversity into financial decision.

About Lund University, Scania, Sweden – Official Website

Lund University  is a prestigious university in Sweden and one of northern Europe’s oldest universities. The university is located in the city of Lund in the province of Scania, Sweden. It traces its roots back to 1425, when a Franciscan studium generale was founded in Lund. After Sweden won Scania from Denmark in the 1658 Treaty of Roskilde, the university was officially founded in 1666 on the location of the old studium generale next to Lund Cathedral.

Lund University has nine faculties, with additional campuses in the cities of Malmö and Helsingborg, with 40,000 students in 270 different programmes and 1,300 freestanding courses. The university has some 600 partner universities in nearly 70 countries and it belongs to the League of European Research Universities as well as the global Universitas 21 network. Lund University is consistently ranked among the world’s top 100 universities.

Two major facilities for materials research are in Lund University: MAX IV, a synchrotron radiation laboratory – inaugurated in June 2016, and European Spallation Source (ESS), a new European facility that will provide up to 100 times brighter neutron beams than existing facilities today, to be opened in 2023.

The university centers on the Lundagård park adjacent to the Lund Cathedral, with various departments spread in different locations in town, but mostly concentrated in a belt stretching north from the park connecting to the university hospital area and continuing out to the northeastern periphery of the town, where one finds the large campus of the Faculty of Engineering.
