Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation - Vienna University of Technology: Job opportunity for PhD-student, TU Wien The Remote Sensing Research Group at the Department of Geodesy of the Vienna University of Technology invites applications for a PhD-student in Earth Observation of Water and Vegetation The candidate will work within the EO-WAVE project ( which aims at improving our understanding of the role of soil moisture in driving global vegetation and carbon cycle dynamics. The project will use novel long-term remote sensing datasets of the water cycle, land, atmosphere, climate, and vegetation to 1) assess the impacts of climate change on the global water cycle and 2) quantify the effects of changes in the global water cycle, in particular changes in drought occurrence and severity, on vegetation and carbon sequestration. This new knowledge will be used to benchmark and improve ecohydrological processes in state-of-the-art Dynamic Global Vegetation and Earth System Models in cooperation with international land surface modelling groups.

CCRN aims to understand, diagnose and predict interactions amongst the cryospheric, ecological, hydrological and climate components of the changing Earth system at multiple scales. With a focus on Western Canada's rapidly changing cold interior, this major initiative links 8 Canadian universities, 4 government agencies and 15 international academic collaborators.
Determinants of genetic diversity : Nature Reviews Genetics Genetic polymorphism varies among species and within genomes, and has important implications for the evolution and conservation of species. The determinants of this variation have been poorly understood, but population genomic data from a wide range of organisms now make it possible to delineate the underlying evolutionary processes, notably how variation in the effective population size (Ne) governs genetic diversity. Comparative population genomics is on its way to providing a solution to 'Lewontin's paradox' — the discrepancy between the many orders of magnitude of variation in population size and the much narrower distribution of diversity levels. It seems that linked selection plays an important part both in the overall genetic diversity of a species and in the variation in diversity within the genome.
Dresden International PhD Program: Requirements Content: A truly excellent academic performance and prior research experience is expected. Distinctive proficiency in textbook knowledge of the relevant scientific disciplines is essential. Applicants must hold, or anticipate receiving before taking up PhD thesis work, an undergraduate degree in one of the following disciplines: A comparison of tools for the simulation of genomic next-generation sequencing data : Nature Reviews Genetics Computer simulation of genomic data has become increasingly popular for assessing and validating biological models or for gaining an understanding of specific data sets. Several computational tools for the simulation of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data have been developed in recent years, which could be used to compare existing and new NGS analytical pipelines. Here we review 23 of these tools, highlighting their distinct functionality, requirements and potential applications.
