MAP MISMATCHES OF EUROPEAN BATS AND 8 PREY SPECIES,  BASED ON MODELS ALREADY PRODUCED BY THE COST ACTION.

Understanding the current and projected mismatches between bat and prey species distributions is critical to understanding the potential impacts of climate change on bat ecosystem service provision. The Action Management Committee therefore welcomes applications to support the scientific activities of Working Group 3 by producing maps to illustrate mismatches between the modelled distributions of European bats and 8 prey species.

We are looking for an early career researcher (Masters or PhD level) with extensive species distribution modelling experience, who are proficient users of R.

The STSM will take place between late January 2023 and 30th April 2023.  Application deadline is the 25th January, 2022. 

To apply, email a short CV (maximum 2 pages) and a short motivation paragraph explaining why you want to do this STSM and your relevant experience to: leonardo.ancillotto@unina.it

SCOPING REVIEW OF METHODS FOR MONETARY EVALUATION OF THE PREY SUPPRESSION BY BATS IN AGROECOSYSTEMS

The financial value of agricultural pest suppression by bats is currently an important data gap that hampers understanding of the ecosystem services provided by bats. The Action Management Committee therefore welcomes applications to support the scientific activities of Working Group 3 drafting a scoping review of the methodologies that could be applied to address this question.

 

We are looking for an early career researcher (Masters or PhD level), preferably with a background in agronomy and pests. A background in bat research would also be helpful.

The STSM will take place between late January 2023 and 30th April 2023.  Application deadline is the 25th January, 2022. 

 To apply, email a short CV (maximum 2 pages) and a short motivation paragraph explaining why you want to do this STSM and your relevant experience to: leonardo.ancillotto@unina.it

MODEL TRENDS IN BAT MORPHOLOGY

The Action Management Committee welcomes applications to support the scientific activities of Working Group 1 by modelling trends in bat morphological traits. 

Many organisms show changes in body mass or appendage length in response to climate warming, due to increased metabolism and thermoregulatory properties of body mass and shape. Due to their biology, bats can be very sensitive to changes and respond by altering body mass and wing size and shape. This STSM will analyse these trends in bats using a time series of morphological traits of bats from across Europe.


We are looking for an early career researcher (Masters or PhD level) with experience on statistical modelling (linear models) and proficiency in the use of R.

The STSM will take place between February 2023 and May 2023.  Application deadline is the 30th December 2022. 


To apply, email a short CV (maximum 2 pages) and a short motivation paragraph explaining why you want to do this STSM and your relevant experience to: leonardo.ancillotto@unina.it
