Postdoctoral position in tropical forest ecology and remote-sensing

The AMAP lab (Montpellier, France) is seeking to appoint a post-doctoral researcher to work on the spatio-temporal dynamics of Marantaceae forest, a presumably stable state of degraded forest in central Africa.

The postdoc will be based at the main AMAP headquarter in Montpellier, France, but will work in close collaboration with the Forest and Society and ISEM labs, also in Montpellier. He will also participate to fieldwork in the north of the Republic of Congo.
