The project RITMARE implies the design of a ‘Marine Observatory System’ based on repeated measurements over time to evaluate the characteristics of the ecosystem and their variability at various time scales. Phytoplankton is a key component of the system for its role in pelagic food webs and biogeochemical fluxes to the sea. The abundance, diversity and population structure of phytoplankton will be analysed at a quasi-real time scale, in order to assess the responses to environmental changes and interpret the ecological status of the system on the basis of long-term series of data collected in the Gulf of Naples. The study will focus on the station LTER-MC, which has all the characteristics to be a crucial node in the network of marine observatories. The candidate will conduct laboratory work, participate in the sampling campaigns and interact with external partners within the network of observatories.

In order to participate to the competition, candidates must have the following requisites: Master Degree in Biology, Environmental Sciences or Biology-related disciplines. Verified experience in the study of phytoplankton diversity in ecological systems similar to the ones which will be investigated in the project.
Competition based on qualifications and colloquio. La 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
