The Canadian Airborne Biodiversity Observatory (CABO) seeks to understand how environmental changes are altering plant biodiversity in Canadian ecosystems, using spectranomics (spectral signatures and images of plant leaves and canopies). CABO is funded by NSERC’s Discovery Frontiers Program and involves researchers from four Canadian universities: Université de Montréal, McGill University, University of British Columbia, and Université de Sherbrooke.
As part of a team of multidisciplinary researchers who are addressing core research questions, making use of field and imagery data collected across CABO sites in forests, grasslands, wetlands, and tundra, we are looking to fill a two year postdoctoral position at the interface between spectranomics and phylogenetics.
This postdoctoral position will be held at the Université de Montréal (IRBV), under the supervision of Anne Bruneau and Etienne Laliberté. We aim for a starting date of September 2020, with some flexibility. Further information can be found here.
