Description

  • Organisation/Company: CNRS
  • Research Field: Biological sciences Environmental science
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 10/11/2021 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › PARIS 05
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/01/2022
  • The post-doctoral scientist - will construct 3D objects of fossil crocodylomorphs ; - will model the thermic transfers with the environment ; - will infer the thermometabolic status (endotherm vs ectotherm) of fossil crocodylomorphs; - will study the evolution of thermometabolism in a phylogenetic context. codylomorphes dans un cadre phylogénétique.

    The post-doctoral scientist H/F will construct 3D objects of fossil crocodylomorphs in close cooperation with the engineer of the imaging platform of the l'UMR 7207 (CR2P). These 3D objects will be used to model the thermic transfers and to infer the thermometabolic status (endotherm vs ectotherm) of fossil crocodylomorphs under analysis. These inferences will be used to study the evolution of thermometabolism in a phylogenetic context. Modeling of thermic transfer and inferences of body temperatures will be performed in cooperation with Éric Brunet (Laboratoire de physique de l'ENS / Sorbonne Université, UMR 8023) and the study of the evolution of thermometabolism in a phylogenetic context with Jorge Cubo (Centre de Recherche en Paléontologie – Paris, UMR 7207, CR2P). This study is framed in the project « Crocodylomorph paleobiophysics » developed in the context of the Emergence Program of Sorbonne Université.

    Scientific work will be performed mainly at the CR2P (CNRS, Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle et Sorbonne Université) located at Paris. A detailed presentation of the activities of this laboratory are available at : https: // paleo.mnhn.fr/fr. The scientific work will be performed in cooperation with a second laboratory, the « Laboratoire de physique de l'ENS / Sorbonne Université, UMR 8023 ».

    Eligibility criteria

    - PhD on paleontology - Good knowledge on the paleophysiology of crocodylomorphs - Strong knowledge on the paleohistology of crocodylomorphs - Know-how to perform statistical analyses in R - Experience and know how with phylogenetic comparative methods - High level of English C1/C2 - Autonomy and capacities to work in a team.
