    The project aims at better understanding the effect of interspecific interactions on species niches and species ranges. A large part of the project will focus on testing and improving so-called Joint species distribution models (JSDMs). Based on extensive empirical data on European breeding birds you will study the scale dependence of interspecific interactions and of JSDMs as well as spatial and temporal variation in species interactions. The results will inform more complex dynamic biodiversity models.

    Requirements • PhD in Ecology or related discipline • Excellent knowledge of ecological and biogeographic theory • Strong interest in methodological and data oriented questions • Strong quantitative skills, experience in statistical analyses of large data sets, experience in (joint) species distribution modelling and diversity metrics across multiple spatial scales • Fluency in R und experience with cluster computers (e.g. Slurm) • High motivation and team orientation • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English and a good publication record • Ornithological experience (esp. in European avifauna) is advantageous
