AQUACOSM-plus offers funding for mesocosm experiments through a unique collaborative international project, representing a full cross section of aquatic ecosystems. It is a good opportunity to visit and work in our Iberian-wide distributed pond mesocosm facility set up to examine the effects of climate change on aquatic biodiversity.

2 years postdoc position in the context of the PredWeb (Predicting Food-Web Biogeography). Project, funded through the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. Background: Biogeography examines distributions of species and communities at broad geographical scales of extent and it is often assumed that interactions among species are second-order effects, with the relationship

Link to the official call Background The deliberate or accidental introduction of species outside their native range is one of the main components of anthropogenic–induced global changes. Biological invasions have been increasing in number and affecting larger areas, with deep reaching impacts on ecosystems, economic activity and human welfare. As a result, invasive species now rank among
