Postdoctoral Fellowship - Ecology of Reef Dynamics

We have an exciting postdoctoral opportunity at the Australian Institute of Marine Science for a project focussed on evolutionary biology and population ecology of coral reefs.

The project is part of the Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program and will be focusing on species specific growth-temperature relationships and coral population demographics. The position is for 3 years and we need a relatively quick start.

Position enquiries can be directed to Dr Juan Ortiz on

Applications close: 11.59pm, Sunday 17 January 2021.

We have two full PhD scholarships to work as part of the EcoRRAP component of the Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program. EcoRRAP focuses on investigating the intrinsic functioning of coral reefs with a strong focus on understanding post disturbance dynamics.


The two scholarships will be working as part of a multi-disciplinary team trying to understand the mechanism driving reef dynamics. In particular one of the scholarships will be focused on evolutionary biology of corals with an emphasis on the relationship between temperature and growth. The second scholarship will be focused on coral population dynamics and spatial ecology based on 3D imagery.


Interested applicants please contact Juan Ortiz regarding the temperature-growth scholarship and Renata Ferrari Legorreta regarding the population dynamics and spatial ecology scholarship.
