This person will help design, develop, communicate and apply bird sub-models of an Agent Based Model to simulate effects of interacting stressors on least bells vireos (an endangered bird species found in southern California). This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0DQPcSk-Qg) provides a 1/2 hour project summary. Ideal candidates will be familiar with ABM and have strong scientific writing skills. Questions can be directed to Dr. Pat Zollner.
This postdoc will work with all collaborators under the direction of Dr. Pat Zollner to develop an Agent Based Model of the behaviors of cage free chickens. This work will be informed by extensive empirical work and will use ODD & TRACE for documentation to compare alternative cage free housing systems based on chicken welfare and laying of eggs outside nest boxes. Work will incorporate perspectives from industry as well as interested non-governmental organizations.

The aim is to develop new indicators of the vitality of honeybee colonies which inform about how much they are affected by stressors. The project will use data from a new electronic counter of the flight activity of a colony with data from drone-based surveys of flowering plants in the surrounding landscape to inform the agent-based honeybee model BEEHAVE (http://beehave-model.net/). BEEHAVE will then be used to develop stress tests for identifying new indicators.

The DFG-funded Research Training Group RTG 2118 ‘Integrating Biodiversity Research with Movement Ecology in Dynamic Agricultural Landscapes [BioMove]’ (Speaker: Prof. Dr. Florian Jeltsch) at the University of Potsdam (UP), the Freie Universität Berlin (FU), the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW, Berlin), and the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF, Müncheberg) offers several positions:
Two five-year positions supported by the National Science Foundation and The Ohio State University for an interdisciplinary research project that examines the environmental conditions that lead to human territorial behavior in pastoral ecosystems as well as how territoriality shapes the environment. Based in the Dhufar highlands of Southern Oman, the project will provide new insights into whether the dynamics of woodland-grassland-woodland cycling are coupled with pulses in human […]
