Field assistant position to work on collared flycatcher population on Gotland at the Institute of Environmental Sciences, Jagiellonian University (Poland) What do we study?
It is well established that biological rhythms are fundamental drivers of biochemistry, cell biology, physiology and behaviour. The regularity of behaviours is governed by endogenous clocks, which are adjusted and synchronised with environmental cues, primarily light. Rapidly expanding anthropopressure largely disrupts these cues. Yet, it is surprising how little we know about the effects of disorders in the functioning of the internal time-keepers in free-ranging animals. The project will aim at understanding the effects of disturbance in environmental cues, i.e. light exposure, on circadian clock of a
