Within the RITMARE project, adaptative responses of benthic plants to anthropic pressure and climatic changes will be studied. Researches will be focused on brown algae (Order Fucales) such as Cystoseira spp. and Sargassum spp. that dominate upper sublittoral communities. These species are particularly sensitive to any natural or anthropogenic stress and therefore they experience deep changes and decline over extensive areas of the Mediterranean Sea. The spatial and temporal distribution of these species will be correlated with environmental forces and their genetic connectivity studied at local and basin scales. The candidate will participate to the sampling diving activities (ARA), will conduct laboratory work, and interact with external research groups.

In order to participate to the competition, candidates should have one of the following requisites: Bachelors Degree in Biology or Biology-related disciplines. Verified experience in subjects related to the specific research project and in biological systems similar to the ones which will be investigated in the project. Advanced Water Diver license.
Competition based on qualifications and colloquio. The assessment of the candidates will be conducted by a special jury, which will examine the qualifications and the performance of an interview aimed at ascertaining the candidate's professional and scientific expertise, as well as his attitude to carry out the specific research subject of the application
