Post-doc position in Kraków

Post-doc position under the National Science Centre grant “Integrating effects of anthropogenic and natural stressors across the organism's life cycle
Grant OPUS 17 (grant no. 2019/33/B/NZ8/00521),

Research description:
Anthropogenic and natural stressor affect organisms in a variety of ways. In natural systems, two major stressors mediated by human activity, the introduction of invasive alien predators and global warming, can drastically affect native prey communities and whole ecosystems. The aim of the project is to understand how single and combined ecological stressors experienced by aquatic insects affect traits connected to fitness, i.e., life history traits. In particular, we will test whether a predation risk, increased temperature and seasonal time constraints influence key life history traits in aquatic prey through changes in physiology and behaviour.
