1. Postdoctoral fellow in plant invasions http://bioprotection.org.nz/vacancies/postdoctoral-fellow-plant-invasions
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to assess the underlying mechanisms underpinning weed invasions by comparing life-history traits and natural enemy damage of weed species in the UK and NZ.

2. Postdoctoral fellow in plant-insect interaction networks http://bioprotection.org.nz/vacancies/postdoctoral-fellow-plant-insect-interaction-networks We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study how complex interaction networks influence the success or failure of invasive species establishment. This is part of the ‘Achieving Bio-Protection in New Zealand Ecosystems’ programme (ABiNZE) with Prof Ian Dickie.
