Post-doc (3 years) - Species distribution, habitat & network modelling
Nowegian University for Science and Technology
We are looking for postdoctoral fellow to work in the Norwegian Research Council project: “GreenPlan: Launching the Norwegian Green Infrastructure Network and new decision-support tools for Land Prioritization, Scenario and Impact assessment”
Our approach is based on functional connectivity to quantify and map functional habitat and cumulative impacts for biodiversity. GreenPlan develops the first nation-wide set of such maps for birds, mammals, insect and plants, and uses them to initialize the Norwegian Ecological Network database, for use in land planning. [See prototype App: https://sites.google.com/view/greeninfrastructureapp/home]
TASKS
The PostDoc will develop high-resolution, scalable, nation-wide maps estimating connected, functional habitat and cumulative impacts for a range of species. She/he will further develop a network modelling approach based on two components: one estimating the suitability of a location for species’ occupancy, the other estimating the link between spatially adjacent locations (permeability). The product will be nation-wide maps on habitat quality, landscape permeability and core areas for a wide range of species and the cumulative impacts of anthropogenic drivers.
The post doc will be supported by an international interdisciplinary team with long experience integrating advances in animal ecology and computer science. The team is developing approaches to quantify cumulative impacts on connectivity conservation, identify vulnerable areas, and perform scenario analyses to guide sustainable planning.

EMPLOYMENT: 3-year, time-limited employment as Postdoctoral Fellow, starting from 1 Aug 2022
LOCATION: Norwegian University for Science and Technology - Department of Mathematical Science, Trondheim, Norway – in collaboration with Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, NINA, Trondheim
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 1st May 2022
