Professor Juan Gabriel Martínez, from the Department of Zoology at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in this university. Applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information in the participant guide: http://sl.ugr.es/097k).

The Research Group of “Biology and Conservation of Mediterranean Vertebrates” (http://ofertaimasd.ugr.es/rnm/grupos-de-investigacion/rnm-254-biologia-y... ) belongs to the Department of Zoology at the University of Granada. The research of this group focuses on different aspects of the ecology, behaviour and conservation of vertebrates in the Mediterranean area, although some other research topics, such as molecular ecology and population dynamics are also covered.

Professor Juan Gabriel Martinez is working right now in a project on the ecology and evolution of life history traits in birds. Our aim is to obtain estimates of lifetime reproductive success in long-lived individuals differing in some fundamental aspects of their life history trajectories such as survival, longevity and reproductive investment in each breeding attempt. We work with magpies (Pica pica) as a model species in Granada. Magpies are hosts of a brood parasite, the great spotted cuckoo (Clamator glandarius). We aim to characterise host fitness and the effect of parasitism in lifetime fitness both at the level of breeding success and survival/longevity of individuals.
