PhD position in plant ecology and ecophysiology in Mediterranean shrublands and forests

We are seeking a motivated PhD candidate to join a new research project to study plant functional traits related to water and nutrient use strategies (e.g. leaf gas exchange, leaf and stomatal morphology, leaf chemistry and the isotopic composition of leaves and stem and soil water) to be analyzed with climate and soil data collected in Mediterranean ecosystems. The main goal is to understand the diversity and distribution of plant water and nutrient use strategies in Mediterranean ecosystems and their implication for ecosystem functioning.
