Dear Colleagues of IUFRO Division 2 and IUFRO 2.09.02 Unit,
For your information, I have recently left the FCBA Technological Institute,
France (Oct. 1st, 2021).
I become an Associate Member of IUFRO and remain committed to the
coordination of the 2.09.02 Unit on Somatic embryogenesis and other
vegetative propagation technologies as an independent researcher. I will
continue to serve the Unit with the support of Dr. Paloma Moncaleán (Spain)
and Dr. Yong-Wook Kim (Rep. Korea).
You can now easily reach me at my permanent Email address:
jfrancois.trontin(a)gmail.com <mailto:email@example.com> or by
visiting the 2.09.02 webpage
IUFRO 2.09.02 Coordinator
Postdoctoral Fellow - Population Genetics/Genomics and Transcriptomics of Forest Trees
Forest Genomics Lab, Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management
University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, Canada
A postdoctoral fellow position is available from January 2022 in the Forest Genomics Lab of the University of New Brunswick to work on population genetics/genomics and transcriptomics of forest trees. The projects include studying genetic diversity and structure of populations, phylogeography, genetic and evolutionary impacts of forest fragmentation and forest management practices, evolutionary and adaptive genetic potential of central versus marginal populations of northern forest trees under climate change, and transcriptomic responses of forest trees to climate change conditions. The responsibility of the postdoctoral fellow will be to analyze the data and prepare manuscripts from some of the above completed research work as well as conduct research on evolutionary and adaptive genetic potential of central versus marginal populations of northern forest trees under climate change. The position offers excellent opportunities for many high impact publications. There will also be opportunities to participate in teaching and interacting with national and international collaborators.
Applications are invited from highly motivated, innovative and productive researchers who have excellent data analysis, writing, and leadership skills, are capable of working independently and have keen interest in population genetics and genomics and transcriptomics of forest trees. The applicant should have Ph.D. and research experience in population genetics/genomics or related areas and should have experience or capable of analyzing data on various aspects of population genetics and transcriptomics, including assembly and annotation of transcriptomes, and identification and characterization of differential gene expression.
Initial appointment will be made for one year. The position is renewable for a second year subject to availability of sufficient funds and satisfactory performance. The fellowship amount will be commensurate with the qualification and experience of the candidate in accordance with the NSERC guidelines.
Please send your application to Prof. Om Rajora via e-mail (Om.Rajora(a)unb.ca<mailto:Om.Rajora@unb.ca>), consisting of a letter of application, statement of research interests and qualifications, complete CV, and names, addresses (e-mail and postal) and telephone numbers of three referees. Evaluation of the applications will commence on 15 November 2021 and will continue until the position is filled.

*DAAD scholarships for the Master of Science in Tropical Forestry at TU
Your are invited to apply for a DAAD scholarship for our MSc Course in
TROPICAL FORESTRY starting in 2022. The course is taught in English at
Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), one of the 11 German Universities
Over many decades, the international orientation and socio-economic
focus have made this 2-year MSc course unique in Europe. You will
benefit from the international background of our research & lecturing
scientists who supervise your field research in the tropics. Besides
socio-economic and general aspects of tropical forestry, the course also
includes specific topics of climate change related carbon forestry,
agroforestry and land use change. Some of the best Master Students are
offered to enter into our large PhD program. Presently, over 300
graduates from our courses are working in tropical countries and
international organizations, many of them in top positions.
Another plus: As public university TUD exempts students from tuition fees!
*Please send your application documents via e-mail to
**tropentutor(a)mailbox.tu-dresden.de****until October 30th 2021. No hard
copies sent via post are required for this years application procedure!*
