The ERC Starting Grant project MAPAS is a multidisciplinary project that combines paleoclimatic
models, theoretical modelling and biogeographic/macroecological methods to explore the role
of past climate changes as a driver of paleobiodiversity. The PhD student will work in a
multidisciplinary and diverse team of paleoclimatologists, computer programmers,
mathematicians, biologists and geologists.
We offer a 6 month PhD position to develop a short research on the relationship between the
amount of carbon in soils and above ground mammal and plant diversity. This is a theoretical
project to understand to which extent carbon data on paleosoils would be used as a proxy of
paleobiodiversity, across time. The PhD student will work with GIS, R, and large present
biodiversity databases.
