This position (Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Quantitative Ecology) will involve strong quantitative analysis and the possibility for field and laboratory experiments. The projects that will support this position focus on: (i) investigate the spatial distribution of Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri and the spread of the citrus greening disease; and (ii) use laboratory and field data from the genus Spodoptera in order to develop spatial models to explain the dynamics of different species according to the climate changes.
