PhD Position in Urban Ecology

Okay, this is way down the line for my target audience, but hey I believe in dangling carrots to inspire and motivate learners. Plus, it offers some detail about what real urban ecology research is all about.

The candidate will investigate the effect of fragmentation on spatial patterns of selected species and invertebrate communities in urban environments; radio-track hedgehogs; sample and identify flying and ground-dwelling invertebrates such as bees, carabid beetles or snails; analyze their functional assemblage with uni- and multivariate techniques and publish the results in international journals.

Detailed project information is available at:
(project module 2, task 4).

Details about the application are available from:
