Post-doc position in human behavioural ecology in Finland

Our multidisciplinary research team is looking for a post-doctoral researcher for a three-year project “Learning from our past”, investigating life history, social integration and the influence of kin in forced migrants in a 20th century Finnish population. The deadline for applications is 31.12.2016.

The project is an exciting opportunity to investigate the consequences of forced migration of over 400000 people during World War II from an evolutionary ecology and sociology viewpoint. These migrants encountered much the same traumas and faced similar prejudices and resentment that current migrants face today, making the study of this population particularly appropriate to gain insight into the present and future of current migrants. Job description and more info:

The project, headed by Dr. John Loehr, is funded by Kone Foundation for the period 2017-2020.

Our research team is greatly looking forward to your application!
