Canary Islands

Canary islands

The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC, Spain) through the Research Group in Biodiversity and Conservation (BIOCON, IU-ECOAQUA), is keen to host a Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) fellow, and is currently encouraging submissions to the forthcoming H2020-MSCA-IF call.

The candidate is expected to undertake basic and applied research in marine foundation species (seagrasses, macroalgae such rhodoliths and others, corals, etc.). The candidate should bring strong analytical expertise to the group through varying techniques (molecular genetics, GIS-based tools, stable isotopes and food web markers, etc.). Collaborations with the group members are desirable, though the candidate may interact with whoever he/she considers suitable. Working languages are English and/or Spanish. Diving skills are desirable to undertake experimentation in the sea altogether research members of the group.

REQUIREMENTS OF CANDIDATES

At the deadline for the submission of proposals (09/09/2020), researchers (*):

  • shall be in possession of a doctoral degree.
  • Comply with the mobility rule: you cannot apply for a fellowship in our institution if you do not meet the call mobility rule -> might change depending on the type of MSCA-IF.
  • Proficiency/fluency in English language (including writing).
