About the research project

The research project investigates functions of E3 ubiquitin ligases for the development of motor neurons and skeletal muscles, as well as their specialized interface, the neuromuscular junction. E3 ligases are enzymes of the ubiquitin proteasome system that modify substrate proteins with the small ubiquitin protein. Depending on the type of modification (e.g. mono- vs. poly-ubiquitylation), ubiquitylated substrates may be funnelled to the proteasome for degradation, or may be subjected to other fates in the cell (e.g. subcellular targeting, cellular signalling). Of specific interest are roles played by cullin-3 based E3 ubiquitin ligases, their associated binding partners, and substrates. The project also seeks to uncover links of cullin-3 E3 ligase dysfunction to the development of neuromuscular diseases.

Fixed term full-time position

1 Jun 2023 - 31 May 2025

ID: 10861


The Department of Biology, Aarhus University invites applications for a 2-year postdoc position on: Biodiversity Dynamics in Novel Ecosystems.

This postdoc project is part of the newly established Center for Ecological Dynamics in a Novel Biosphere (ECONOVO), funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. ECONOVO aims to provide critically new perspectives on the future of the biosphere. Novel ecosystems (NEs) have species compositions or abiotic conditions without historical precedent, e.g., intercontinental species invasions and extraordinary warming. NEs are spreading fast and are expected to be globally dominant by the late 21st century. Key drivers are climate change, globalization, and extirpation of large-sized organisms, resulting in ecosystems deviating from anything seen for millions of years. The spread of NEs is likely to affect biosphere functioning profoundly, but how so is poorly understood at present. To address this complex theme, ECONOVO will take an unparalleled, interdisciplinary approach, integrating Big Data and field-based ecology, satellite-based remote sensing, archaeology, paleoecology, and population genomics to bridge this crucial knowledge gap.

 

Starting Date and Period

The position is for 2 years and is available from June 1, 2023, or soon thereafter.

Job description

This postdoc project will be part of the ECONOVO research theme 1: Diversity Dynamics, focused on understanding biodiversity dynamics in novel ecosystems (NEs) past and present. This position is a macroecological position focused on present-day NEs at a global scale. While it is well documented that biotic assemblages are changing across Earth and at accelerating rates, links to rising ecological and climate novelty remain poorly understood. With this position, we aim to overcome this knowledge gap and test whether basic biodiversity theory can predict observed dynamics in globally emerging NEs. Building on our previous work, the postdoc will lead the mapping of NEs globally by mobilizing large data sets on species distributions of native and non-native plants and vertebrates and integrating them with geospatial data on novel environments. Based hereon, the postdoc will lead the development of predictive models of NEs and by coupling this mapping to biodiversity data assess how NEs impact to assess general NE impacts on species diversity, testing if dynamics are predictable from theory. The postdoc is expected to contribute ideas and concepts to the project and lead at least two high-quality papers in this research area. It is also expected that the postdoc contributes to the project’s public outreach and teaching, as well as collaborating with other team members, including students, sharing skills, and helping to solve problems in the postdoc’s area of expertise.

Your profile

Applicants must have a PhD degree in ecology, geography, or equivalent; and have submitted their PhD thesis for assessment before the application deadline. Expertise in macroecology is expected, combined with solid geospatial/statistical modelling, and data architecture/management skills.

ID: 10904


The Department of Biology, Aarhus University invites applications for two 2-year postdoc position on the WildE Horizon Europe project: climate-smart rewilding –ecological restoration for climate change mitigation, adaptation and biodiversity support in Europe.


Rampant climate change and biodiversity loss present the greatest challenges to the integrity of Earth’s biosphere. To avoid a catastrophe, large-scale and coordinated action is needed, including ambitious ecosystem restoration. This project aims to quantify how different implementations of ecosystem restoration and rewilding affect biodiversity and climate change mitigation in Europe. In the context of this project rewilding is defined broadly as ecosystem restoration that aims to reduce human control and increase natural dynamics, i.e. ranging from passive land abandonment to trophic rewilding with reintroduced megafauna.

 

The project has two parallel goals: 1) quantify how biodiversity and climate change mitigation variables have responded to past and ongoing ecosystem management (conservation, restoration, rewilding) in areas around Europe and 2) quantify how future climate change and restoration (land-use) scenarios may affect biodiversity across Europe.

 

Starting Date and Period

The positions are for 2 years and are available from April 1, 2023, or soon thereafter.

 

Job description

The first postdoc position will focus on quantifying historical trajectories in relevant biodiversity and climate-related variables in a large macroecological analysis of areas with different ecosystem management histories across Europe. The data will predominantly be from satellite remote sensing (Landsat for historical data, supplemented with recent data from Sentinel and GEDI), but may include spatial biodiversity data of plants and potentially other taxa.


The second postdoc position will focus on translating future scenarios of land-use (incl. restoration) and vegetation states (produced by project partners) to biodiversity implications at the European scale. The work will link predicted vegetation type to potential species composition using functional traits and species indicator values (e.g. Ellenberg for plants). Focus will be on plants, but may also include other taxa, especially mammals and birds. We will draw on the rich European data archives on survey, functional trait, ecological indicator and other biodiversity data.

 

Your profile

For both positions applicants must have a PhD degree in ecology, geography or equivalent, or have submitted their PhD thesis for assessment before the application deadline. Strong expertise with quantitative ecology is expected, in combination with solid skills in spatial modelling. Strong coding skills are essential (at least one of R, Python, Google Earth Engine JavaScript) for both positions.


For the first postdoc position experience with remote sensing data is required to help obtain ecologically relevant information from remotely sensed variables.


For the second postdoc position experience with modelling species ranges or experience with large occurrence and trait data are an advantage. Specific insights into the ecology and distribution of study taxa (plants, mammals, birds) would also be an advantage.

 

The successful candidates are expected to have strong collaborative skills as they will work closely together and with the supervisors, as well as with international wildE partners. Candidates must have proven abilities to publish at a high international level and have excellent command of English. International applicants who do not have English as their first language must prove excellent English language writing skills and fluency.

 

Application materials

The application must be in English and include a motivation letter including a 1-page outline of your ideas for the postdoc research project, 2-page CV (including number of citations and H-index from Google Scholar), full list of publications, as well as educational documentation (copies of diplomas for Master and PhD degrees, in English or Danish).

 

Supervisor and collaborators

Assistant professor Robert Buitenwerf and Professor Jens-Christian Svenning will be the supervisors. The postdocs will join the Section for Ecoinformatics & Biodiversity (EcoInf) at the Department of Biology at Aarhus University. EcoInf harbors strong expertise in macroecology, remote sensing, and megafauna and vegetation ecology, as well as in ecology and biodiversity broadly. EcoInf constitutes an ambitious, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and highly international research community and currently hosts several centers of excellence including ECONOVO, a Center of Excellence focused on improving our insights into emerging novel ecological conditions and how to steer these conditions towards the most positive outcome possible. Local and international collaborators from within the wildE project will be included where relevant. Postdocs and PhD students are encouraged to collaborate within the group, across departments, and with other universities.

20) Postdoc Position in Global Optimization of Atomistic Structure

Deadline

1 Mar 23:59 CET

Expected start

1 Jun

Physics and Astronomy, Dept. of

Ny Munkegade 120

8000 Aarhus C

Fixed term full-time position

1 Jun 2023 - 31 May 2025

ID: 10835

Come to Aarhus University for a two-year postdoctoral position and join a dynamic group, working on global optimization of atomistic structure. Among the methods developed in the group is GOFEE that employs Bayesian statistics to identify the most promising structural candidate among a set of candidates relaxed in a surrogate energy landscape (a machine learned potential). Another method, ASLA, constructs the structural candidates based on image recognition and reinforcement learning.


Your role would be to use these methods in search for challenging nano-scale structure in materials and surface science projects and to extend the methods with new intriguing techniques. The latter could be generative adversarial networks (GAN) or other established schemes from data science, or they could be your own new ideas that are perhaps more domain specific. See https://mldft.com for more information about previous projects performed in the group.

Your Profile

Applicants must hold a PhD degree in physics, chemistry, nanoscience, computer science or equivalent. Previous experience with machine learning methods and/or first principles energy calculations in physical chemistry is required. Experience with programming in python is highly desired.


You can learn more about Bjørk Hammer’s group here. 


We offer a cutting-edge research environment where the combination of electronic structure and machine learning methods are used to further the capabilities in computational modeling.

 

Place of work and area of Employment

The place of work is Ny Munkegade 120, 8000 Aarhus C, and the area of employment is Aarhus University with related departments.


Further information may be obtained by e-mailing Bjørk Hammer (hammer@phys.au.dk). Please use as e-mail subject: "postdoctoral position 23a".

Application procedure

Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants.
