3rd International Congress on Parasites of Wildlife (Kruger, South Africa)
Competition for Senior Researcher position (Laboratory of Mammal Ecology, project 'Bendrijos')
The Nature Research Centre announces a competition for a Senior Researcher position at the Laboratory of Mammal Ecology for a term of the project 'The Structure of Small Mammal Parasite Communities and Intestinal Microbiota and Their Regulation' ('Smulkiųjų žinduolių parazitų bendrijų ir žarnyno mikrobiotos struktūra bei jų reguliacija' ('BENDRIJOS', 18.08.2017 agreement No S-MIP-17-86 with the Research Council of Lithuania) until 30.09.2020 (1 position, 30 hours per month). Priority is given to candidate's experience in ecological, parasitological, molecular and phylogenetic investigations, ability to analyse parasitological material and molecular data, microscopy skills, ability to identify parasites and apply phylogenetic software. Nature of work: leadership of the research project, processing of study material, parasitological and molecular investigations, publishing research results, delivery of reports.
Competition for Senior Researcher position (Laboratory of Chemical and Behavioural Ecology)
The Nature Research Centre announces a competition for a Senior Researcher position at the Laboratory of Chemical and Behavioural Ecology (1 position, 1 FTE). Priority is given to candidate's experience in chemoecological investigations of insects and plants, ability to collect and analyse volatile organic compounds by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, to identify such compounds; skills in using mass spectral libraries. Nature of work: laboratory investigations and fieldwork, chemical analysis of volatile metabolites produced by organisms.
Competition for Chief Researcher position (Laboratory of Avian Ecology)
The Nature Research Centre announces a competition for a Chief Researcher position at the Laboratory of Avian Ecology (1 position, 1 FTE). Priority is given to candidate's experience in ecological investigations of bird populations of the highest trophic level through different fieldwork and laboratory methods, experience in ecological modelling, ability to analyse obtained results and scientific literature, prepare scientific publications and contribute to high-ranked international scientific journals, present research results on an international scale; successful supervisorship of doctoral students. Nature of work: investigation of relationships between class Aves populations of the highest trophic level and endo- and exogenic factors. Investigations cover in situ registration of individual bird peculiarities, population demography and other endogenic and exogenic factors at different spatial levels by representing different environmental conditions.
