Research Fellow ‑Investigating Functional Traits and Tree Vulnerability

We invite postdoctoral candidates for the role of a Research Fellow to work on a project titled — Investigating Functional Traits and Tree Vulnerability.

As a researcher, you will be:

  • Involved in looking at vulnerability and endurance capability, keystone species of urban trees, and investigating functional traits at different scales. 
  • This will involve collecting field samples, setting up and standardizing lab protocols, taking measurements, analysing data, and writing manuscripts.
  • The project involves national and international collaborations.

The position will be for 6 months initially and will be extended based on the project progress.

  • Candidates with PhDs in plant eco-physiology or ecology are especially desirable. Exceptional candidates with a PhD in plant physiology with expertise in hydraulic traits will also be considered.
  • Candidates with a strong interest in working on a project that combines theory and experiment are invited to apply. Wet lab experience is preferred, and basic programming / analytical skills, especially in image processing, are desirable.
  • In exceptional cases, candidates with a master’s degree will also be considered.
