What is the LTER network?
The LTER network is a Long-Term Ecological Research network of sites, on a large spatial scale, where long-term ecological investigation is practiced, with the main objectives of monitoring and storing relevant data in ecology, establishing links among institutions and researchers and promote the exchange of data and knowledge. This organized network of LTER sites first appeared in the United States of America in the 1980's. In 1993 an international network was developed (ILTER) and, more recently, the European network of LTER sites was created.
Some people dream of success. We make it happen.
Ria de Aveiro
The inter-university research centre for aquatic ecosystems research WasserCluster Lunz (WCL) invites excellent young scientists to apply for the WCL PostDoc Fellowship Program.
WCL performs research in aquatic ecology and biogeochemistry and is committed to provide innovative research on structure and function of freshwater ecosystems, and to safeguard the sustainable use of resources. Ranging from microbial ecology to biogeochemistry, from restoration ecology to aquatic ecosystem management, and from ecotoxicology to aquatic food web and biodiversity research, WCL has established links with its partner universities to address topical research questions for freshwater ecosystems and their sustainable use. WCL is shared to equal amounts by the University of Vienna, the Danube University Krems, and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna.
Postdoc position in Austria. until 31st July
This event provides a unique opportunity for presenting the interdisciplinary research and development actitvities concerning trends, recent developments and achievements that have been realized on the Long Term Socio-Ecosystems sites and platforms.
The purpose of the joint conference is to bring together scientists, engineers from environmental sciences and social sciences, programme managers and policy makers to exchange knowledge, to share experiences and research results, to discuss the most recent developments and applications on environment as well as prospective researchs.
Each oral session will include a keynote lecture and oral presentations. Two poster sessions have been scheduled.

LTER Portugal is part of the Portuguese Roadmap of Research Infrastructures of Strategic Interest
In alignment with the European Strategic Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI), set up in 2002, the national Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) launched a call for the Portuguese Roadmap of Research Infrastructures of strategic interest. LTER Portugal network was one of the selected RIs for Environmental Sciences (2014-2020), as part of a consortium termed PORBIOTA that includes PORBIOTA, LTER Portugal, ICOS Portugal and Azores BIOPORTAL.
LTER Portugal as a partner of the H2020 project eLTER: European Long-Term Ecosystem and Socio-Ecological Research Infrastructure
eLTER is an EC H2020-funded project involving 22 LTER-Europe partners and 162 sites that, in collaboration with the European Critical Zone Observatory community, will provide data on long-term trends in environmental change. Of the Portuguese network, the Montado socio-ecological research platform (LTsER Montado) was selected for in-person transnational access (TA) scheme and the remaining sites (LTER Sabor, LTER Estuaries and LTER Ria de Aveiro) for virtual access (VA).
