*Call for a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Wine, Biodiversity & Climate
Change Program - Chile (www.vccb.cl <http://www.vccb.cl/>)*

*Application Deadline: December 31, 2015.*

The Wine, Biodiversity & Climate Change Program is a scientific initiative
of the Institute of Ecology and Biodiversity, developing strategies for
biodiversity conservation along with Chilean wine industry. The project’s
objective is to develop and promote conservation planning in human
dominated ecosystems

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with strong expertise in
metagenomics and bioinformatics, preferably with additional knowledge on
community & ecosystems ecology, to join our research team aiming at linking
microbial diversity and ecosystem services provision.

This program was initiated in 2008 to engage winegrowers in the protection
of the Chilean Mediterranean ecoregion, which lacks adequate protection
within the Chilean Protected Areas Network, is highly impacted by human
activities, and contains more than 50% of native Chilean vascular plants
and vertebrates. Our primary interest has been to study how this ecosystem
can continue providing ecosystems services to the wine industry and the
local community today, and under future climate change scenarios. We aim to
generate research and conservation plans, promoting stewardship of these
ecosystems by knowledge transfer to wine growers and local communities.

Post base: *Instituto de Ciencias Ambientales y Evolutivas*, Universidad
Austral de Chile, in Valdivia, Chile.  The candidate is expected to travel
to wine growing regions of Chile and Santiago for meetings. The post
requires a valid driving license and a minimum level of Spanish. Additional
