Applications are invited for a post-doc position in the field of coastal ecology for 2019 and 2020 at Rhodes University in South Africa. This position is unusual as it is not linked to a specific project, rather I seek a post-doc with the courage and imagination to help me to develop a project that they will lead around the effects of climate change on species interactions in benthic systems. These can be any form of interaction and any taxa. The research funds and infrastructure are already available and my philosophy is that a post-doc is an extra brain, not an extra pair of hands so this as a way for you to develop your own interests and career track. The coast of South Africa represents the meeting place of the Indian Ocean to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Southern Ocean to the south, providing the opportunity to include the effects of biogeography on the trajectories of species interactions.
If you are up to the challenge, please write with a cv, including three referees, and broad field of interests to Christopher McQuaid:
