The research interests of our new group are summarized by the following key words:  biodiversity (genes, species and landscapes); conservation biology and management; forest ecology and forest health; functional diversity and ecophysiology; gene flow, hybridization and speciation; plant-soil interactions; quantitative and conservation genetics; phylogeography; plant systematics; polyploid evolution; population biology; reproductive ecology; soil acidification and eutrophication; urban ecology. 

For further information see http://www.planteco.lu.se/ and http://www.sysbot.lu.se/.

We welcome applications from researchers (both women and men) who have recently (during the last five years) completed their PhD within any of the above areas of research, or within other, related research topics within plant ecology or systematics. We particularly wish to encourage applications from researchers who are working on the interface between plant evolutionary biology and plant ecology.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in Plant Ecology, Systematic Botany or a related subject.

The main duty of the Research Associate will be to carry out research within plant ecology/systematic botany. The duties of the position also include (up to 20%) undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and a certain amount of administration.

The position will be funded for 2+2 years (the second two years' funding will be awarded after an evaluation of the first two years’ work).

The application should be in English, include the reference number 1245 and the following documents:
