I am recruiting one PhD student and one postdoc, to work in my research group based in the Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen. I seek independent, highly motivated persons who are interested in studying biodiversity and ecology of subterranean ecosystems, their relation with surface and how they respond to anthropogenic pressures. Please contact me if you are interested.
Understanding the impact of human activities on subterranean biodiversity
The lack of light in the subterranean environment gives rise to a peculiar ecosystem composed of species with unique adaptations. This project investigates the impact of anthropogenic disturbance in subterranean ecosystems, providing the first global perspective of how human activities are affecting the largely unknown and extremely fragile subterranean biodiversity of our planet. The grant will allow the recruitment of one PhD student, one postdoc and purchasing of new equipment.
This project is funded by the VILLUM Young Investigator Programme:
